    Practice. You jump. You turn. Work on your bunnyhop more- the higher you can get it, the more of a chance you have to do the 180. Oh, and nice picture by the way...

    Turn head turn shoulders turn torso. So turn the way you are going to jump and keep twisting.

    Dont worry about how high it is, until you can rotate it all the way around.

    Lean into it, and turn your head like Jerry Garcia said.
    And keep at it, dont give it, thats the worst thing to do, just give up and move on.

    Yea its hard at first. I started at just doin 90's, and then worked my way up. I only get about 16 inches give or take a few when i do a 180. I just whip the bike around really fast. you need good balance to be able to land a 180, and to keep riding without putting your foot down. Just be careful when you dont land it perfect, it puts alot of pressure on your rim, and you could possibly taco your rim if it isnt a good one. My friend taco'd his rim practicing 180's.

    Either that or he's running 12-spoke racing rims with bladed spokes.

    I'm not sure if DT even makes bladed spokes for 20" rims yet, but 12h and 16h wheels are getting more popular for younger racers, from what I've been told.

    Those little junior and expert race bikes are sooo light.

    It was more of his bike than him. He is a good rider, its just that his bike isnt built for street ridin.
