With the news that Red Bull Formation is making a come back this year, it makes sense to check in with pioneering freerider, Hannah Bergmann. Fortunately, the Downtime Pod did just this.
They touch on many an interesting subject from visualisation to the future of women’s freeride, but the bit about learning how to crash stuck in my ‘little grey cells’. As Hannah mentions, being able to fall well (a lovely juxtaposition) is a crucial part of riding and I think it’s often overlooked. This may be down the the tricky subject of how you practice it, but humour me – for now at least.
With this in mind, I thought I’d cut out the middle man and utilise all my years of experience crashing to produce a Bangers and Mash Certified Guide to Crashing (Endorsed by absolutely no one).
So what have we learnt? Not much I hear you cry! Yep well this is the internet after all….
