#1 Sit correctly
Sit in the right place and don’t be forced on the bike.
#2 Stability is based on good placement
Position your torso well and achieve good body position. This is key to achieving stability when driving. Do not lean your torso forward more than necessary unless you do so to protect yourself from aerodynamic pressure.
#3 Naturally tilt your arms
The arms should fall on the handlebars following a natural inclination. Elbows should not be too high or too low.
#4 Use your hip
If your hips are too far forward or too far back, the reaction when changing gears will be reduced.
#5 Pay attention to the levers
The position of the arms is mainly marked by the correct position of the levers.
#6 Help yourself off your knees
When cornering, the inside knee when turning can be slightly open.
#7 Avoid putting excessive pressure on the footpegs
The footrests must be unloaded. Do not press too hard to avoid the weight of the legs on the boots.
# 8 Pamper the handlebars
Press properly on the handlebars.
