Among the most mentally challenging obstacles are whoops, especially deep ones found on real supercross tracks. Get out of rhythm, even for a second, and you’ll probably find yourself slamming face-first into the ground. Forgiving they are not, but there are several tactics employed by the top pros to tame them.The idea is to skim across the tops so the bike’s suspension doesn’t feel the full effect. By taking advantage of this blitz technique, riders can minimize how much travel is used by the fork and shock. The idea is to avoid dropping either wheel into one of the many valleys in between the whoops. This can be incredibly intimidating, but it’s a technique that is becoming increasingly important as more tracks around the country take the lead from stadium racing in their design.
