The 4th episode of Jackson’s Bike School is here!

For the fourth time, Jackson Goldstone takes us along on the trails of Bikepark Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis to share his knowledge, his tips and tricks on how to become a better mountain bike rider. This time, the young Canadian demonstrates three simple tricks for the bike park and shows us how to perform them step by step: a nose bonk, a tabletop and a shralp.

Due to its vast variety of trails, Bikepark Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis is not only the perfect playground for mountain bikers of all skill levels, but also the ideal practice area to learn and optimize tricks, whether just starting out or working your way up to bigger tricks. But it’s not only the actual bike park where you can improve your skills in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis: a kids’ park, a dedicated training area, a pump track, a slopestyle course with multiple lines and an air bag invite riders to train while having fun.

So if you ever wanted to know how to perform a nose bonk on a step up, how to style up your bike park laps with a table top or how to smoothly shralp a berm, tune in for the newest episode of Jackson’s Bike School: “How to learn 3 simple tricks in the bike park”

 shralping is easy, just grab a hand full of rear brake and turn in. ive watched plenty of 50 to 1 so i should know

 A good proper shralp is actually more tech than a nose bonk or a table. Just drifting or braking ain't what I call a proper shralp

 @dirt2g: yes! I absolutely love corners and roosting... but one thing I find is that more than anything else, I realize that there are about 105 things happening at once in a corner from hips and their orientation in 3 dimensions to the 'drop' from one hip to the other, etc etc etc and the list goes on. When I am 'off' there's always so many more things to analyze than any trick you can throw. Also, you have to factor in speed - sometimes you can make a corner look cool but not gain speed from it. The best is when everything comes together and you gain speed and just feel the tire roll all at once... AH!
Also, love the tables - my favorite steez move (though I have a long way to go to make mine look smoother!)

 @COmoose: Actually, a huge shralp will break the corner curve, and you won't have any way to gain speed from it. I honestly don't care about speed and would rather just have fun.

And you're completely right, a shralp need to be calculated a lot. Sometime you just do it all right and it doesn't happen due to a little line choice of few cm (or inch).

 I think I'll just keep doing my own table. As a carpenter.

 Sweet, this will really fuel next weeks Friday Fails as everybody tries to nose bonk, table, and schralp their way to youtube stardom. All jokes aside, thanks for the tips @j_money831.

 Been shralping since before that word was a thing but I can barely clear a small table Jackson. Thx for the tips. Last week I was using the shralping as a method to stay inside the braking bumps on that amazing new 5620 flow trail @revelstokeresort. Lol you could say over 200 shralps to the bottom!
