No matter what goals you have set for yourself as a bmx rider, you need to know how to hop good. That is why there are tons of how to videos on it. I created this as my first of many how-to’s. The hop is important for park and street riders alike, let’s get into it.
Time needed: 1 hour.
How to hop a BMX Bike
- Roll at the object
Judge the right amount of speed and roll to the object that you plan to hop over.
- Compress your legs and body
Compress your body and get ready to use explosive power to hop.
- Explode your legs & pull up the front end
Expand the legs and throw your body straight up. While doing this, pull up the front wheel.
- Suck your knees up
Suck your knees up and pull the bike back up into your body. This will maximize the hop.
Land and get ready for the next trick.
