Hiya, I've been riding XC for about a year now on and off, however recently I discovered a very nice downhill course, which tides in well with the fact that I just bought an all mountain bike with some a respectable amount of travel.

Anyways, I had a look and the whole place was very intimidating, with huge jumps and very tight corners. However what I did I really enjoyed.

I plan on going twice weekly early when it'll be quiet to brush up on my skills, but I'd very much like some help.
Firstly, what is the proper technique for Downhill cornering, and linking turns quickly?
What is the proper seat position? I've heard it's low down, but how low down?
Thirdly, how should I go about tackling some of the smaller jumps?

Cheers guys. :)

Might not get a whole lot of help on this forum, try the downhill forum...FWIW one guy's downhill course might be just a ride to others...

It was set up with the intentions of being a downhill course, and there is some very technical stuff.
But cheers, I'll go have a gander in the Downhill forum and see what they say.
