Snapping a Gate

Permanent Linkby Qray on Thu Aug 27, 2009 10:07 am

"Snapping" a Gate...when getting out of the Start Gate, you want to get as much momentum moving forward as possible. The best way to do this is to drive both your hips and shoulders forward.

There are a lot of details and fine points on how to best accomplish this, but the essence is simply to get those body parts moving to create forward momentum (that's right kids, science is involved in BMX!)

The way you move to create this forward explosion of body and bike is called a "snap."

I'm going to die the way I've lived...poor, screaming, and naked.
