I especially liked the crying and the "OMG's" you could hear in the background. He apparently got up and finished the race.

This is exactly why I still roll the big jumps in the races. I need a lot more practice at an MX track. So far I've only been landed on once!

Man's gotta know his limitations. My idea of big air is jumping a water bar.

Me too. I can hit smaller doubles on the track and have worked myself up to seat bouncing ditches and things in the woods, but I'm no jumper. We've got an AA in our org now that that I'm riding with a bit because he's a former SX 250 guy.

I want to get more comfortable in the air so I'm not losing spots to these guys when there's an MX track involved.

Serious question - Do you have to immediately let off the throttle to keep the rear wheel from spinning up and pitching you backwards when you leave the ground? Clutch in at the last second? And are you actively using the throttle to adjust your attitude in the air?

Entirely depends on the jump, how fast you're going, and your body position.

Rule of thumb is to be as balanced and neutral as possible when starting off and be smooth. Throttle will raise the rear wheel, back brake will lower it. Just remember to use the clutch so you don't kill the motor.

Some jumps though might require a "seat bounce" to get over because it's a short run up to the jump. So you will be heavy on the back of the seat and then as the bike leaves the jump you lean forward. The bike will typically be very nose high and you will need to use some body English and the rear brake to get the front end back down.

Other jumps when you are carrying a lot of speed can try and buck you forward if you aren't careful and that's when the panic rev comes into play to get the front end up.

The current fast guys will use a technique where they are aggressive on the front of the bike, go very fast up to the jump and then roll off the throttle to carry more speed. Then you also have scrubs to get even lower and carry more speed.

I'm currently sidelined with a broken ankle I got last Sunday when I came up a bit short on an uphill double. I knew I wasn't gonna make it but I still panic revved the bike to try and get a little more distance (in vain).

Jumping a MX bike is something that takes time in the saddle to become comfortable with.

I spend a couple of nights per month at the local MX track working on berms, cornering, and jumps because all of that applies to the woods. Seems that it's as much of a jump to go from woods to MX as it is from the street to dirt. Not so much for the MX guys going into the woods.
