Motocross Coaching Video - Jumping Step Downs
Step Down style jumps can be difficult obstacles to attack out on a motocross track. The main two reasons are. You are basically jumping blind, from where you take off you can't see the landing and you need to judge your speed and distance to downramp them perfectly. If you take your time while building up to jumping towards the downramp you will stay much safer than if you just guess and have a go. Step Downs are not a jump that you want to jump long and land past the downramp, it is guaranteed to be a hard landing.

ONE: A smooth straight approach will help minimise problems and give you time to get everything right before you leave the jump.

TWO: Because you can't see the downramp don't be afraid to take your time and progressively jump towards the downramp.

THREE: The landing may be a little harder than a regular jump as your bike will g-out at the base of the downramp so remember to brace yourself.

FOUR: You can have a lot of fun with step downs when you get them sorted and become comfortable so take your time, stay within your ability level and stay safe.

I usually jump by roll my throttle with "a single scream engine" just a second before my front wheel take off the table to get "standing effect" for my bike, is it a good idea? Report this
