Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Th, Apr 11, 6:30PM


I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding. I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes. There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes. This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF. In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)

Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing

Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other

Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking

Braking While In a Turn


What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes

Engine Braking

All About ABS

Braking and Downshifting

Downhill Braking

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding. With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider. I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended! Is that cool or what? Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!
