Yes. There are wrecks everywhere in the track on bmx. Reason I have 2 seperated shoulder and 2 shattered collarbones bmx racing.Are there usually alot of wrecks taking off from the gate when people are fighting for part of a track curve?
There are videos out there of professional racers getting a bit of smoke off the back tire as the gate drops.
? I don't think you quite understand pro gate starts in that point then. Your not cheating, your just rolling out of the gate while its dropping down. Simple theory. Go to any ABA or NBL national and tell me you don't see that in all the Expert - Pro classes.Or absolutely not.
You're, not your.? I don't think you quite understand pro gate starts in that point then. Your not cheating, your just rolling out of the gate while its dropping down. Simple theory. Go to any ABA or NBL national and tell me you don't see that in all the Expert - Pro classes.
You have no idea how long two seconds actually is.I'm sorry I don't properly punctuate on a web forum. I have "better" things to be doing than worrying about typing, especially from my "cell phone".
And yes, look at any race vid, it is easy to pull a 1-2 second snap on somone. Go to any UCI world cup event, any ABA national and you will quickly see that play out.
How I podiumed multiple times at the national level. It was all about the starting of the race.
And yes, I do. About 5-7 feet coming off the gate. I especially know all about seconds from my extensive past of competitive swimming, where fractions of a second are what makes a win.You have no idea how long two seconds actually is.
but what does that all have to do with learning gate starts.A balance bicycle (balance bike, run bike) is a training bicycle that helps the rider learn balance and steering. It has no pedals, no crankset and chain, and no training wheels. It can be a normal bicycle with pedals and related parts removed, or it can be purpose-built (especially for very small children, for whom normal bicycles are generally not available). It can have no brake, or it can have one or two hand-activated rim brakes.
To function properly, a balance bicycle must be small enough that the rider can walk the bicycle while sitting comfortably in the saddle, putting both feet flat on the ground. The rider first walks the bicycle while standing over the saddle, then while sitting in the saddle. Eventually, the rider feels comfortable enough to run and "scoot" while riding the bicycle, then to lift both feet off the ground and cruise while balancing on the two wheels.

Children as young as 18 months can learn to cruise a balance bicycle within a few hours' practice.
With a balance bicycle, the rider learns balance first, pedal last. In contrast, with a normal bicycle fitted with training wheels, the rider learns pedal first, balance last. Although opinions differ regarding which learning sequence is easier for most riders, it is generally agreed that a bicycle with pedals is too difficult for most very young children and that training wheels may encourage the rider to learn some behaviors which later must be unlearned.
