It is best to practice jumping quite a bit before ever trying it out in a race. You can start small, and we recommend attempting some singles before moving up in difficulty, but don't be afraid to take a risk. If you don't push yourself to go higher and farther then you probably never will. There are several different types of jumps that you will have to tackle at the track and each has its own techniques.

You will never win a race by following the guy in front of you!  We'll show you how to be aggressive without being reckless and also how to tackle some of the harder passing techniques such as passing in corners, passing while jumping, and passing in the whoops.
