Best tips for fastest remounts?
I love fast dismounts and fast remounts. I hate to brake before a barrier and my goal is to accelerate to it and through it and to be hitting bike-speed before remounting. Blazing! (What fun!)
...But I do have a bit of a problem.
I can blaze my remounts but they're kinda wild. And they're usually jumpers with fairly hard landings on the saddle. I hate that.
I want one of those remounts that the pro's do where it looks like nothing has changed -- they go from running to being in the saddle.
I know that "hit the remount against the saddle with your inner thigh, just slide it up and over" stuff but I can't seem to do that while running fast.
My last running step ends up being kind of a jump. If I try to moderate it at all -- and stay down closer to the bike and saddle -- I end up snagging my foot on the front or rear tire! And, anyway, I'm still not that smooth or soft-landing. I'm going so fast that I bash something. At least if I jump I have a split-second to get everything lined up -- but I hate the hard landing (even though I make it work).
I'll probably break my seatpost soon if I don't smooth out and lighten up!
