Mary is an avid road biker and is looking to take all of her fitness and learn some skills in the dirt.
Coach Shelly worked with her to separate her body from the bike, especially in the corners. Mary recently added a dropper post to her bike at that REALLY helped her make those tight turns!
Many road cyclists like to ride with a very narrow stance (gripping the saddle with their thighs). The biggest shift we can add for them on a mountain bike is the wider stance, which allows the bike to do all the work under them and they stay loose and relaxed above the bike.
