How to gain confidence on the downhills on your mountain bike | SHIMANO

As a former professional downhill racer, Andrew knows all there is to know about descending well.

It’s not all about speed, however, and one of the key takeaways from this episode is to practice the technique and build your confidence before adding in speed. Speed will come once you’ve mastered the other fundamental skills involved in descending, such as looking far ahead, positioning your body and weight correctly, staying relaxed, and being smart with your braking.

Go out and try each of the techniques in turn and soon you’ll be descending with confidence and a huge smile on your face!
