The competition skills of mountain biking include climbing, adjusting the transmission, following the bike, supplementing energy, etc.

Mastering riding skills can improve the speed of mountain biking and share practical skills.

I hope it can help those who have been riding for a long time but have not improved their skills.

The key to uphill and downhill is uphill → downhill; The transition moment from downhill to uphill.


Many people climbed to the top of the slope to relax.

Don’t relax at this moment.

Keep your strength until you reach the downhill acceleration.


When going downhill to the valley bottom and turning uphill, it is normal to use the inertia when going downhill.

If it is a short slope, use the inertia to rush to the top in one breath.

But pay attention to the long slope.

If you want to maintain the rhythm of acceleration when going downhill, you should rush up the slope immediately.

It should be converted to the rhythm of climbing as soon as possible, and climbing at an average speed.

When using the acceleration rhythm when going downhill to go uphill, it will (down).

This is because the high speed rotation of the foot is overloaded (that is, the commonly referred to as anaerobic exercise), which makes the foot muscle store too much lactic acid, making the foot unable to move.

If you want to be a master, you must exercise your muscles and heart and lungs.

The adjustment of the transmission If the transmission of your opponent’s bicycle is found to be malfunctioning, you should take the opportunity to increase the distance between you and your opponent.

The performance of the transmission is very good now, but it is also a fact that there will be some problems during the race.

Overload when going uphill is often the cause of transmission failure.

In order to avoid the failure of the transmission, it is necessary to change the speed early (adapt to the speed change), which will result in more surplus.

Whether it is beneficial to follow others? 1.

When following others when going uphill, you can take the person in front as a guide, or check the opponent.

Sometimes it is really beneficial.

But the speed will slow down.

It is not so beneficial to avoid air resistance alone.

If you follow others, your vision of the front becomes unclear, you can’t deal with the road changes immediately, or you can’t see the person who falls in front.

In all cases, it is advantageous to take measures to ensure the vision ahead.


It’s dangerous to follow others when going downhill.

The speed is fast when going downhill, and the road condition should be judged in advance.

The view must be unobstructed.

If the road is narrow and only one person can ride, a certain distance should be kept from the former for safety.

If you want to cross the former, it is also beneficial to extend a certain distance.

If the road is wide, do not cross on the same line as the former.


If the former is slower than you and you want to pass him, call “track”.

According to the international competition rules, if a contestant is called “track” from behind by another contestant, the called contestant may not change his/her route.

How about taking a chance to win downhill? It takes energy and strength to win on the downhill.

Although the time difference is enlarged, it is not worth the loss if you are tired on the uphill, and the time difference becomes even greater.

Therefore, it is better to spend energy and strength on the downhill than to leave them on the uphill.

Unless you are confident of going downhill.

Precautions during the competition 1.

Carefully check all parts of the vehicle before the competition.

In particular, the air pressure of the tires shall be adjusted according to the road conditions.

The tension of the chain and spokes should also be checked.

The old chain is easy to break.

When riding for a long distance, the tension of the spoke is easy to become loose.


When the contestants start at the same time, they often cannot see the route conditions ahead, so they should observe the route conditions before the competition.

When starting, everyone wants to go ahead.

If you are too anxious and fall down, it is not worth the loss.

It is better to master your own pace and try to leave the group at the right place.


There are two types of number cloth for riders and bicycles.

They must be placed facing the front.

If they are not placed well, the referee cannot see the number clearly.

When walking around the field, they may become invalid.

To win the cross-country race, you must have certain skills and techniques, but you must have the physical strength to play these skills.

The physical strength that can be sustained throughout the game will determine the outcome.

The official race in the United States usually lasts for 1 hour, while the elite race lasts for more than 2 hours.

In practice, we should especially strengthen the climbing practice.

Find some slopes that can climb for 30-60 minutes continuously.

Two or three riders who are similar to themselves practice together.


Beginners should focus on the practice of trampling and increase the number of rotations of their feet.

Through efforts, it can keep the rotation number of 80~100 times/minute on the flat ground.


Those with higher technical level should improve their physical strength and use heavier gears.

Adjustment of off-road bicycles 1.

Adjust the saddle height appropriately according to the downhill route.

If the downhill slope is severe, lower the saddle slightly.


The pedal should preferably be of the buckle type.


The grip is good.

If there are few stones on the road, fine bicycle tyres can be used.


When going downhill, you will encounter stones, cracks and other roads that are difficult to ride, so it is not easy to fatigue when installing the front shock absorber.
