Tumbling drills to save your a**

We’re all going to crash – it is just a fact of life for mountain bikers. Practicing basic tumbling drills is something I  recommended for mountain bikers to help them understand how to crash better.

Getting good at these basic drills will save your a** some day. It can be the difference between walking away from a crash and lying there in a bloody, wimpering heap. Trust me on this one, I’ve had these drills save me more than once!

      Have to plead ignorance on that one, I got mine at a garage sale. Might try checking with a local gymnastics school, they might have an old one they can sell or check on craigslist.com.
