    You should be standing when taking off and landing on a jump. To wheelie put yourself in a very low, easy pedaling gear. Then go as slow as possible. Get ready then pedal hard as *** and at the same time lift the handlebars. REMEMBER PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT!!!

    If you can tell me what kind of racing you are doing then I could probably help you more.
