As a enduro rider I have a lot of experience in the woods, it is important to see the obstacle before and be ready for it, and not to be surprised by it. If you look in front of the fender it’s okay for low speeds like hard zig zags, slow uphills. But for fast riding it is very dangerous and rocks will kick you because you don’t have time to react when you see it. That’s why it’s important to look far ahead, to see the rock or other object, and to think about how to get around or how to go over it.
Thinking about your enduro training is very important because you can learn from your mistakes and progress as a rider. It is not important just to training, sometimes it is important to rest a bit and think in which direction it all goes.
Don’t be lazy on an enduro bike, you have to move back and forward to keep perfect balance. When you brake your body has to go backwards, when you accelerate your body has to go forward. On the dirtbike you have to be relaxed to have it under control. If you are stiff he will tire you quickly and you will not have the strength to ride him but also that riding day will not be fun for you. When you are relaxed, everything goes much easier. I may have become boring with this topic, but levers position is very important for bike control, it also same like the position of the handlebar.
