A good friend of Mtbr, Jeff Lenosky is creating a series of videos that can help us all become a “Trail Boss.” This first video release was shot in Austin, Texas, where he traveled for an Oskar Blues event, which include a donation of 60 bikes to an area school.

While there, Lenosky got word of the hardest trail around — the Emma Long Motocross Park — and knew he needed to give it a shot. With local pro rider Tristan Uhl, Lenosky demystifies it by explaining the tools and the pace needed for the key sections of the trail. Press play to learn more.

When you ride an entire trail you may feel like a boss, but without the proper skills Mother Nature can quickly remind you who’s really in charge. Lenosky’s video series explores some of the most technical trials around and provides tips on how anyone can become a “Trail Boss.”

Not only weight shift but the proper pace are key  to getting a rhythm on this tech section.

“I’ve been traveling the country for years, and it seems like everywhere I go riders always have tales of that one ‘unrideable trail’,” said Lenosky. “I want to experience the thrill of exploring and attempting to clean these local legends and pass along some of my knowledge along the way.”
