View Full Version : Turning Ė inside or outside leg out?

12-09-2008, 10:11 AM
I had a sexy wipe out on an fast, icy fast turn on Sunday, I had the inside leg clipped out for balance but I had no chance. One of the lads I was with suggested that I had the wrong leg out, that I should have had the OUTSIDE leg out and forward. Now Iíve heard some crazy **** in my time and we dutifully mocked and derided this person for his crazy ideas. But he was told this by Mike in Switchbacks so I am left uncertain, now I know Mike is partial to certain mind addling substances but surely he canít be right, what is going on? I'll be damned if I'm putting my outside leg out, it will look ridiculous apart from anything else.

So whatís the story, fast turns, inside or outside leg out, which one and why?

Would I do such a thing? I'm going to try Gavs technique, that sounds good.

keep both out, but make sure you stay off the saddle.

Between the cold, the knocks to the head and stories of Hugh Heffner's birthday party, head the ball was clearly delusional by the time he started spouting this out.

At the bottom, on a flat bit of tarmac, his demonstration of the technique was so sketchy looking I though he was going to face plant there and then.

The man's a menace and a legend.

Just in case you are wondering, I'm keeping his name to myself. ;)
