Whip-it Wednesday


Let’s talk about the pink buffalo in the room… crashing.

.

Let me just get this out… you fear crashing WAY too much!

.

There it is, I said it. Phew!

.

Most of my crashes don’t hurt beyond scrapes and bruises. (let’s be honest, you brag about them when you have them…)

.

Believe it or not, most crashes do not result in broken bones and stitches, especially if you are a rider with a coach ;) Don’t get me wrong, some serious injuries happen in our sport, and even with my athletes.

.

So here is my advice for you: PRACTICE CRASHING!

.

Practicing crashing helps you:

  • Learn to anticipate a crash

  • Better planning and execution of a crash

  • Tuck and roll (no stiff arms please!)

  • Crashing in many ways

  • Toughen yourself up a bit (you need it, you know it)

  • Land on your feet more often!

  • Bailing (ditch the bike, save the bones)

  • Become more athletic


Check out this video I made about the topic.
