    I have enjoyed the course and learned a lot beyond my expectations for an on-line course. The trail braking lessons are really good and important and something I am working on. I am a former MSF certified coach and the braking concepts taught during the rider safety courses is quite different than the trail braking being taught here. I find that trail braking correctly is a much safer approach. The one thing I would add to the course is concerning correct tire pressure. Your course teaches that braking and loading the tires actually deforms them to increase the contact patch and increases grip. The part of the course I find missing is some information about tire pressure, checking it, at what psi etc. I think maintaining the correct tire pressure should be mentioned as part of the course.
