Nope!! they must nail it coming out of every turn, and gas it after going over trail bridges, It is just in their nature, I don't get it

When do you normally accelerate? Before or after a hazard?



I actually try to throttle at different times to knock down the whoops that get created. If everyone keeps the same rythm, the whoops grow fast. If someone goes out of sync with them and throttles it over the peaks, they get knocked down again. I try to counteract the bumps by the way I ride them. At least it is smoother for the next guy. Hehe...

As said ride during the week, you will have the trails all to yourself for the most part. The weekend warriors are out in force.

I usually try and lump the whoops. .More fun that way..

Yes.. I'm a throttle monkey.. I do try not to accelerate with the hammer.. I let the power on easy as to not try and tear up the trails but I do love flying thru the whoops sections.. That is when the groomer doesn't knock them all down and make it no fun.. By the way I'm just kidding.. lol

My sled doesn't spin at 50 to 70 mph.

I don't know why people do holeshots in the middle of the trail?? Just like when they spin up all of the ice on the hills and corners. It is one thing to spin on some of the bigger berms on turns, but to polish up the inside of turns and going up hills?? Why is my gas mileage so bad?? LOL

the beauty of riding a rev is that you dont have to worry about those bumps

Come to were I live, 100's of miles of trails and no such thing as a groomer. If the whoops arent 2-3' its not worth riding. That way its keeps all the trails clear for the people who can really ride.

i understand what you are saying, you can give it gas with out leaving a pile of snow and destroying trails. you have to be smooth. i manage go along fine without a leaving pile!

what is the point of a sled if you can't get on the throttle? If its too fast you're too old. Try bingo

you guys are missing the point.

there are many knuckleheads out on the trails that destroy them from leaving piles everywhere. these are the people who usally arent registered or have the propper passes and ruin trail privliages from private landowners.
