Most rider courses will tell you that when you corner you scrub off all your speed before you enter the corner and then get off the brakes, because braking into the corner is something you don’t want to do. On this episode we talk to riding instructor, Clinton Smout about braking into the corner - trail braking - and we aren’t talking about going faster - we are talking about riding safer.
