I had my first race last weekend...and i went to practice a few days ago..and i am wondering..when i land from like a downhill double...the landing is REALLY rough..and my friend says that it looks like that my chin is going to the hit bars when i land...i guess im not soaking up the landing or something.....what is the correct way to learn to land...like what position in your body? knees bent or what.....

please help.....

knees bent arms bent standing on the pegs

you want the front tire to land slightly first though not too much so you dont go over the bars.

it should be bump bump not bump......bump if ya get what im typing. the front tire needs to be slightly ahead of the bad
