Nice! What's the secret of the yellow rider you follow in most of the video, how does he make it
look so easy to take those small drops? He's not going very fast, doesn't seem to be pulling on the
bars or shifting his weight or kick-pedalling off the edge, and his bikes just floats and lands
perfectly horizontal every time. I understand it's got something to do with fore & aft balance but
how exactly do you get there?

The secret is that Chet Peach can just plain ride. He's smooove.

...and that's just some plain kooky rock garden work. My collarbones cringed just watching him glide
over that stuff!

Yes he is. Not to mention that dude following him around with a camera going over the same obstacles
just using his split vision isn't too bad either ;)

Yeah, Chet's a badass. Even more impressive in person (and a good guy taboot)

But the short answer to Franck's question is weight shifts, time on the trail, and natural ability.
Not really a secret, just a good recipe.

Watching that video makes me realize how much I miss biking. Especially those trails in my own back
yard...being so familiar with them. =(

Enjoy the great weather, freaks.
