Most of us suffer in climbs but almost everyone enjoys the descents. Yet going downhill safely is not that easy. This is why we are going to review the right technique and principles now.
We can use three different positions on long descents.
There have been some other popular riding positions in the past, such as Marco Pantani’s style. However, modern methods have entirely replaced them.
The most important thing is to look forwards in the direction you are going. Your eyes must lead the way – the faster we ride, the further ahead we should look.
When descending, one of the pedals is always down and both our hands hold the bars firmly. These are the three points that provide the balance needed for braking and changing direction.
You can learn the right descending technique at the Mallorca cycling camps, where you can enjoy many iconic climbs and descents.
