Just ride with others that are faster and more skilled than you. No real tricks to it, other than getting the necessary info to lay out a path to improvement and showing up to follow it.

Watched it the first time on the edge of my seat scoping out his mind-blowing lines and riding skill, and the 2nd time taking in the environment while laid back.

I like the intros to each rider, their physical stats (weight, fitness, height, inseam), riding styles, biking background, and such. If I find one that has similar beliefs to me, I might just follow them, and would like to know what their personal rankings ... more »

Also curious what's in that box above the BB.
