The reason I don’t smile when I’m riding is because I’m trying to remember where the fuck I’m going.
Or what the fuck I’m doing
Or how the fuck to do it
And if I am smiling, it’s because i just fucked up and i’m trying to cover it up.
Or I’m laughing at myself because of how god awful it was
The jump height is irrelevant. If your approach is shit, your jump will be shittier.
Ask for impulsion. Ask for self-carriage. If you can get those two things, the jump will come.
So don’t focus on the damn jump."
