The main answer I got to that question was that was the tires that came on the bike...in truth, I think the tires actually helped. You had to have your throttle, clutch and body position correct or things just went south. It took me three attempts to make this hillclimb. There was a turn at the bottom where you had to keep your momentum up. If you didn't hit the hill smoothly and keep an even throttle..you went off to one side or the other...I did both. The third time I got it right and sailed right up...
The three riders in the video are our coaches...they made everything look easy
