Hello all, first here is a little background of myself:

I have been riding for the last year or so, and have been doing mostly XC stuff. I recently moved to steamboat, CO and have been getting more into downhill riding. I am getting to a point where i am riding pretty fast. My problem is that when i am riding corners faster I am having a hard time getting the bike around. I see guys on videos that can kick their back end around and maintain a faster line.

When i ride large banked berms i am okay keeping speed, but in the flat stuff i have a hard time maintaing speed, especially in sandy corners.


sorry if this does not make sense, thanks for any help!
