Burning for grip !? Total mud-fest of a trial at the weekend. So slippery it was hard to walk though the sections let alone ride them. This picture of my bike was is after riding through the stream at the end to try and clean it a bit. The experts somehow managed to find grip by using max throttle and a high gear (like 4th) and controlling the speed with the clutch - they called it 'burning for grip'. Is the purpose to throw the mud out of the tyre whilst at the same time cut through the top layer of mud to find grip? It seems like a really useful technique. Does anyone have some tips or techniques on how to learn it? #askneil any thoughts or advice?
