Analysis of Cycling Techniques – Power Assisted Front Wheel Lift

Start in seated position with your weight towards the rear of the saddle

  • Apply a powerful pedal stroke with your lead foot, just before the obstacle
  • Pull back with your shoulders and lower back
  • Keep your arms straight and weight back, pushing your weight through the back of the saddle
  • Lift your head as you pull back
  • Twist your arms like revving a motorbike for extra pull
  • Keep your rear brake covered. If you go too far back, feather the brake to avoid looping-out
