There are few things in dirt riding that make you feel more like a spode than trying to change directions while in sand. Either the front end tucks and you hit the deck, or you’re so cautious that your turn radius exceeds that of the typical MX team’s 18-wheeler. What’s the secret to railing through a sand turn?We posed that question to Fred Andrews, figuring he’d probably have some good input after his years on the National MX circuit, followed by a new career in off-road racing that’s netted him an AMA National Hare Scrambles championship plus a GNCC title. “You get in the rut, lean it over and flow with the turn,” he advises.Watching Andrews perform this maneuver a few times, we realized that commitment is the key to sand turns; you can’t be tentative or you’ll be dead meat. But there are other tricks that Andrews was willing to share, so follow along.
