  1. Perfect timing. There’s a few jumps that I hit or want to hit that are right out of a corner so I’m still in the corner gear, so I’m just absolutely pinned to hit the jump

  2. That last tip with toes pointing out is very good. I train here and there with some coach or other at the time. This other dude pointed it out to me. And it makes big difference. Adding to that toes pointing out effect your bike handling (looser grip with legs) – just try when standing up…:) good vid

  3. Hiya, id like to ask you your opinion about the last tip: I’ve got Gaerne SG12 and I realise that the shift lever in his normal right position is too low. The boot gets stuck sometimes makes me crazy when shifting. Could you please give your personal opinion the get the right shift lever position? Think you so much for your help. Cheers

  4. I've almost found myself on a Friday Fails by hitting a false neutral between 3rd and 4th. Scary moment but was able to save it. Love the Friday Fails videos, MX is a sport I would rather learn from others mistakes rather than mine.

  5. Nah gimme that bike, trust me I’ll kill it pop wheelies on cop cars. Swerve on these hoes, run my foes over and marry it. Give it to me. Get at me fuckin love it
