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, whimpering heap. Trust me on this one, I’ve had these drills save me more than once!
