Downhiller techniques... how? off camber turns.
Question for you downhillers here. I am trying to improve my downhill riding. I've got the speed and brakes covered and am working on getting the inside foot up on quick turns.
My question is what my body and feet positioning should be when the turn is "off camber" (the opposite slant of what a normal turn is, feels like the hill want to throw you off). Do I still lift up the inner foot as in a normal slanted turn or the opposite for better balance? For now I just freak out, slow way down and keep my feet even at 3 and 9 o'clock. I really want to figure this out because it puts a big damper in the middle of my fun speed runs on two particular trails.
