3 Secret Grip Tips for Mountain Biking in Mud and Wet

mountain biking in mud

Earlier this year I competed in a muddy and wet mountain bike night race.  It was a ton of fun, but tough on equipment.  And it was even tougher to stay upright and keep a decent speed.

The trail itself was awesome and very technical in places, what with slippery logs and roots all over the place.  Some were even halfway around corners between narrow trees!

So how did I get through the race in one piece and without crashing?

With these three rarely told tips: 3 Secret Grip Tips for Mountain Biking in Mud and Wet

Don’t forget to check out the 3 Secret Grip Tips 3-minute video at the bottom of the article. It’s short and sweet.

    Hey Chris. I’m an Aussie living in Austria and have been using your great tips all winter to deal with the snow, mud and ice in the Alps. And they work! A Norwegian friend convinced me that riding in snow was a lot of fun – and he’s right. A little challenging but far from impossible. Life is a getting boring now the snow has gone.

    One tip on ice – avoid using your front brake as this will cause the front wheel to slide out from underneath you. Use only the back brake to keep you in line and slow you down. This applies in long mud patches too.
