As you have probably been told many times before, races are won and lost in the corners. With smoothness being a key ingredient to this technique, we couldn’t think of anyone better than Australian hotshot and KTM factory fast guy Jay Marmont to demonstrate how to keep your momentum in turns. Take it away, Jay.As you are making your turn, start rolling on the throttle in one smooth, quick motion until you are really on the gas. You can also hit the clutch slightly if you think the bike is bogging down, but Marmont only does this if he buries the front end, which happens depending on how much momentum he has entering a turn. Either way, keep your foot out and look up toward the next section of the track.To carry the most speed through a corner, you need to get all of your braking done before the turn so that you can come into the berm as controlled as possible. Find a braking point before the turn, and brake hard with both brakes while standing up.As you get off the brakes, quickly transition from standing to sitting. This needs to be done in one motion, because if you stay on the brakes too long or sit too early, the bumps coming into the turn tend to buck up the back end, which could throw you over the handlebar.Keep the throttle on just slightly as you enter the actual corner. Pick a point on the berm on which to turn, and with the brakes off and the throttle on, begin your turn. Start leaning the bike over, putting out your inside foot for balance.When you are exiting the corner, keep the throttle gradually on, making sure to keep your head up and looking forward. Shift your weight back on the seat slightly, so the rear wheel grabs the most traction. From here, just get the bike straight and take off! As long as you stay smooth with the throttle and do all of this in one quick, fluid motion, this technique will really help your overall lap times.
