Watch: Jackson’s Bike School – How to prepare for a downhill race!

Jackson’s Bike School

Jackson Goldstone is back with a new episode of his Bike School series. This time, it’s all about preparing for a race, picking race lines and maintaining speed. For Jackson, it’s not only about being fast on the bike – it’s about being prepared and picking the best line – because only then will riders be able to put down a winning time.

The young Canadian picked the Downhill track in Bikepark Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis to talk about the most important topics, because it features a lot of technical sections that will influence line choice: which race line is the best? What about when it’s wet? And how do you pick the fastest line?

Right on time for the 6th MTB-Festival Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis, which takes place from the 29 July – 4 August, bikers will be able to use these valuable tips to prepare for the race weekend ahead – line choice will be critical during the Specialized Rookies Cup and the iXS International Rookies Championships. Adrenaline-pumping action is guaranteed!
