tip. Number one is gonna be just getting warmed
up. Gotta get warm, man. Gotta get warm. You don't get warm. That what? Cold, but cold. That's bad.
Making sure that you're not getting super psyched on the way there you're writing texts in your buddy saying I'm gonna hit it today. I know I am. And just going out first lap and launching it, don't wanna do that. Okay. This check probably has 15 other. That are much smaller, so you can take time, hit those jumps, make sure that you're feeling dialed in some days you just feel off.
Right. So make sure it's not one of those days. When you go for the biggest jump, get warmed up. Maybe do a 20 minute session, go back, get a drink, have a nice smoothie, whatever you have and then come back out and go for it all. Tip number two, two, this is gonna be probably the most important one is gonna be sizing up your jump.
If it's a hundred foot, you don't wanna jump 80 foot. The first time I would suggest jumping 40 foot, or if it's a quad, like we have behind us here, maybe jumping the double 10 times and then going to the triple 10 times. And then when you feel really, really comfortable with both of those and it's time to send.
Also another very important one. Once you're ready to go. You must go. I see it time and time again, where a writer says, I'm doing it. I'm doing it today. I'm doing it right now. I'm doing it in a minute. Okay. I'm doing it. I'm gonna do it tomorrow. Once you make the decision, the most important thing for your safety is to go for it.
That's your gut saying? I'm in. I'm ready. I'm going for it. Your mind is the only one that plays tricks on you. You must listen to the gut and go. That's gonna be the safest route. What's your name? Trace Holland. All of you. 12. What kind of bike do you ride? Is. TM 85. Where are you at right now? A D DMX. You hit the biggest jump out here.
Mm-hmm , which is pretty impressive for an 85. What went through your head that you wanted to hit that big jump? Like how, how did you approach it? I ended up hitting the triple first and then, um, second time I did it, I over jumped the triple and I was like, oh, I've got this. I ended up just going, okay, I'm gonna send this.
And I sent it and I ended up making it. So, so you're a hundred percent confident you were gonna make it? Yes. And we're gonna go watch you hit it right now. Yep. Nice. How many times you hit it? Every lap.
And another thing that, that goes along with a commitment is understanding what type of rider you are. If you're the type of rider that does a little better jumping stuff, when you're flowing in a lap and you're feeling good. Or you have a type of rider that needs to pull off and hit the jump 10 times over and over making a little loop, understand like where you're at with that.
What's the safest for you. And what's gonna be the most, uh, recipe for success there and make sure you make that decision. Most tracks you can get off of and back on safely during the middle of practice, fourth tip is gonna be risk management. If you're gonna go for something new, it's very, very important that you take as much risk away as possible.
That starts with your bike. If I'm gonna go big that day, I wanna make sure my. Good. So I start here. Axel bolts, make sure they're tight. You don't want your wheel flying off. Okay. Get you a tour crunch. Make sure that's torque spec. I go from there to the spokes. You also don't want those coming loose. So make sure you're checking your spokes while you're back here on the back end and also the front end.
Make sure you're checking your tire pressure. My go-to is 12 towns of pressure. I moved from there. Keep on the back wheel. In my Sprocket bolts. Okay. I've seen many times the Sprocket bolts back out, throw the Sprocket, destroys your hub and potentially destroys your body from back there to the front of the bike.
Okay. We're gonna go up here, check our pinch bowl on our front axle, and then also check our loft, nut that old bike's gonna have this, but make sure this is torque to spec. You wanna check your pinch bumps on your fork? Okay. Make sure those are tight. So we're not losing our forks in the air. Sounds crazy, but it happens.
Check your handlebar. Especially on KTS because they have a very, they're very prone they're underneath in here. They go into your top triple clamp. Those bolts will come loose and your handlebar start to wiggle. Make sure you check those very, very important. You two stroke riders, make sure your gas is on.
Okay. Cause you're only gonna go about two minutes before the bike BOS out glass, but not least make sure your motorcycles got a full take of gas before you leave highly recommend getting yourself a funnel. make sure that you take that risk away by. Going over your bike very well. I know a lot of people do, but also a lot of people are just on the bike.
Go ride, hope it goes well. When you're jumping big jumps, the bike can be a huge factor after you get done tuning up your bike, make sure that you know how to case a jump and make sure you know how to over jump a jump. Okay. Because those both could very well happen. What I like to do if I'm over jumping or casing, depending on the landing is land with the back tire first, especially on a very long high speed jump.
You don't necessarily wanna land with the forks. First, the shock has a little more, uh, G in it, I guess you could say. And then taking the blow. Front tire. That's a big thing is just making sure you know, how to case the jump and that you're ready for that. If it happens, tip number five, go with your gut.
Do not listen to your buddy, meaning don't follow your buddy. When your buddy's like, Hey, follow me in. Don't do that. They may have a much different jumping style than you. They may have a faster bike where they're going slower after the jump, and then they power through the face, which I've seen many times just size it up and do it on your own.
I. People following people into the faces and I'm always like this. That was pretty much it. All right, guys. We hope you're jumping the biggest jump of your track.
