Important when taking turns is to shift your weight in the direction of the turn. Take a good look around the bend. You take most turns from the outside in. (Ideal line) On sharp turns, be careful to keep your foot hanging in the turn high. Keep your weight low to the ground, so you have more grip.


If you threaten to get too much on the outside of the corner, but you can no longer turn your steering wheel sharper because otherwise your front wheel will slip away, it is best to turn it on. This will get you back on track.


hairpin bend:


Make sure you are on the outside of the path so that you can steer well into the turn. Click out your foot that is in the inside bend, so that you can keep your foot on the ground if you fall. Just before the turn, turn the handlebars in the direction of the turn and lock your rear wheel. You will now notice that your rear will slide 'behind your steering wheel'. As soon as your rear wheel is back in the desired direction of travel, release your rear brake and put it back on full.


Tip: If possible, shift to a lighter gear before entering the hairpin, so you can get back up to speed faster after the turn!

When approaching the turn, reduce speed (depending on the difficulty). You also lean with your body to the outside of the bend. The pedals are vertical: those on the cornering side are up. When entering the turn, move your body to the inside of the turn. The deeper you sink, the better the grip of the tires. When exiting the corner, try to quickly increase your speed again. Braking in a corner is not a good idea.
