AMCT Tips: Passing Racers on Singletrack

Patrick BarrettSo it’s time for a new season and lots of new riders/racers! A friend of mine asked me the other day how to pass properly on trails during races. Sure it’s hard because Texas mt. bike racing is all narrow windy trails. But don’t let slow poke mcgee prevent you from the glory you deserve. Follow my tips and then you’ll have a good base to expand on. Also, these tips will help you not get a crowbar to the back of the head for being “that guy who wouldn’t let anybody pass.” Of course, if you can just take a crowbar to the back of the head you might as well be capable of jumping into open hotel atriums a la Jason Bourne which means you don’t need any of this advise!
