Flat Pedal Foot Placement For Best Results
The other issue is the actual type of riding. This article, if I understand correctly, is referring mostly to "pedaling" and not necessarily to gravity-oriented riding. If you need explosive power (DJ, DH racing), ball of the foot on the spindle with the heel down will allow maximum power transfer with fast-twitch muscle. If you're pedaling for sustained endurance or want slow power, midfoot is ideal. Basically, think of the motion for a power clean (exploding off the ball of the foot) vs. a deadlift (pushing through the heel and midfoot). Both have value - it just depends on the situation. For DH riding, though, I tend to just keep my foot on the pedals - I don't much give a damn where they end up as long as they aren't in my shins.

Nice, man! Gotta stay high on that off-camber shit. And way to go clearing the box!

POC ESC Enduro Cup #1 - Plattekill Mountain
Thanks for the explanation! I'm very glad nobody got hurt and good to hear that both men were sporting about the incident.

That last picture is why one does not stand in the landing of drops. Take note. I nearly killed someone at Mountain Creek this past Sunday who was running across the landing of blind step down.

The reflector is the only reason I doubled that box. Wouldn't have had the confidence otherwise. Haha.

"It's not mind spark, but it's real tight" - Matt Dennison, Faster Than You. Really nice job, dude. Definitely does justice to the day.

Too sketchy. I need to find a less sketchy way to do this...
