How to cope with various road conditions encountered by riding

1. Slippery road

When the field is slippery, especially remind riders to avoid passing through the white line, gutter cover, crosswalks and other sections, otherwise heavy pedaling is easy to slip; in fact, once the ground is slippery, even light braking is easy to cause a fall, the speed should be reduced to 30 to 40 km/h as a good policy, and in the corner, try to avoid making pressure car pressure car skidding action.

In addition, before the race, players should choose the appropriate equipment, especially when it comes to mechanical problems, carbon fiber wheelset and aluminum wheelset use different brake blocks, if you put on the preparatory wheel, but did not take this into account, I am afraid that the brake will lose its proper braking ability.

Considering the maintenance cost, the coach also suggested the runners to use the aluminum wheelsets in the rainy days to avoid gravel abrasion on the carbon wheelsets, which would cause damage.

In addition, players should use gloves and windbreaker after the summit, with the supplement of hot food to warm up the body before descending, so as to prevent the stiffness of the players' hands caused by low temperature and maintain the sensitivity of the fingers when braking.

If you are still affected by the low temperature at the top of the mountain and have an uncomfortable situation, the coach suggests using the safe section to do hand shaking and stretching to help blood circulation.

2. Downhill section

During the race, you should only use the brakes when cornering and descending. Please refer to the cornering skills of road bikes for cornering, and be alert at all times on downhill sections.

After climbing to the top, it is also recommended that players pay attention to their own safety when going downhill, mainly at low speed, training is still focused on climbing, downhill is the first priority to ease, take the strength of cornering and straight line acceleration, seasoned players may be able to respond quickly in 30-50 meters, but general players should slow down in 80-100 meters in advance to measure safety.

If it is the primary attack on the downhill players, want to pull away the biggest distance with the rear players in the downhill, courage is the biggest factor; sit slightly backward, rely on the strength of the back muscles and abdominal muscles to help support, do not put all the weight on the handlebar, in order to get more control.

3. Roadblocks, bumpy roads

When encountering a predictable bumpy road, riders should avoid over-relaxing and pressing into the "ostrich eggs" or potholes in the road, and lowers with poor vision will be a big no-no. Hold on to the change handle or lower handlebar, keep running in a straight line, and pass naturally after slowing down.

In addition, do not rely too much on following the car, especially in professional competitions, you may encounter poor visibility or rival team players digging holes for you to jump, and there are even cases of players failing to dodge and directly hitting the poles, so do not be cautious.

If you encounter obstacles on the road, whether it is small gravel or large rocks, it is quite dangerous for cyclists. It is recommended that you also start with the rear brake first, followed by the front brake, and go around the outside.

If your reaction is fast enough, after the horizontal pedal with the rider to pull up, flying over the obstacles is not too difficult for the players, in the international competition is also very common.

4. Pre-race site survey

If you are not a landlord or experienced veteran, you must prepare in advance to foreign countries or unfamiliar roads, even if you line up in a downhill array, it is inevitable that you will encounter uneven players, even if you are following the car, you must pay attention to the front and rear, left and right sides also have time to react, the slightest change in an instant may cause injury.

A small reminder: when using the rear brake, to grasp the "contain" slowly rub the key, rather than an instant emergency stop, so as to avoid skidding, or even cause a rollover situation.
