Cornering on a road bike is all about technique, confidence and grip. This video is all about perfecting every aspect of your technique to maximise your grip. Click here to subscribe to GCN: http://gcn.eu/SubscribeToGCN
You've probably seen how pro cyclists absolutely fly round corners, especially when they're descending. And, as cornering fast is about technique rather than fitness, you can corner like – or better than – a pro.
With the basics of confidence and line choice nailed, focus on the smaller aspects, the marginal gains that make up to big differences. Half a second gained in a corner doesn't sound like a lot, but it's half a second that others have to chase to make up. Think about things like body position, road surface and counter-steering.
