“I let off [the brakes], and I sit down right at the beginning of the turn, lean it over, stay right in the [turn] and just flow the whole way around. The key here is not to use too much front [brake] and to [try] not to turn out of the sand-you actually have to follow the turn around. On dirt you can turn, whereas in sand, you go to turn and you tuck the front and then fall.” Andrews sums up, “It’s almost all one motion: You come in hard, charge hard [into the turn], get on the brakes to scrub off some speed, let off the brakes, sit down and give it gas-but do not dump the clutch; you just roll the power on, and it flows right around.”On the approach to this fairly fast, sandy left-hander, Andrews is up on the pegs and in a semi-crouched, centered position. “I charge into it pretty hard and use some front brake, but not a lot because sand tends to make the front end want to tuck,” he points out. “Just a quick hit of the front and back [brakes] together is enough to slow me down.”Here, Andrews begins to plop down onto the seat, near the front, though he won’t be as far forward as if this were a hard-packed turn. In sand, it’s unnecessary to exaggerate body movements, and since sand provides such a large amount of drag on the bike anyway, simply shutting the throttle is going to result in more deceleration than on hardpack. But you have to use both brakes to maximize braking, thus minimizing the time you spend slowing down.
