Jeff Lenosky is a veteran rider with a 20-year professional career, three Observed Trials U.S. National Championships, and a bunnyhopping World Record to his name. In his instructional video, Jeff covers a technique he calls a "Punch," which he feels is a more practical, useful technique for getting up and over obstacles while out on the trail.
Have a watch below and then grab your mountain bike to practice and master this skill.
Jeff's reasons to use a punch instead of a bunnyhop are:
- Seat height doesn't matter, dropper post or not.
- You don't need as much speed and can execute it uphill or downhill.
- You'll be able to get high even if you're on a dual-suspension bike.
