A Beginner’s Guide to ATV Race

   Jul 25,2022

Starting in Powersports on an ATV is a terrific way to get feet wet and experience the exhilaration of speeding down the trail or blasting around a track on four wheels.

Whether you choose a 2- or 4-stroke ATV as your first ride, it would help if you took the same precautions while driving a car for the first time and paid attention to the following recommendations.


  • Wear Gear 

To ride an ATV, you must have the proper safety gear, which isn't a "technique." Wearing all four of these items is a necessity. Pushing the envelope will come quickly once you have your bearings, and you'll want to be prepared.

  • Watch Your Feet

Keep your feet firmly planted on the ground. Use nerf bars and heel protectors instead of foot pegs. While letting your feet dangle loosely is natural, getting them tangled in the spinning back tires is simple. Most ATV owners, especially racers, use nerf bars because the stock pegs provide insufficient traction.

  • No Wheelies

You may put wheelies on the back burner for a while. When a new ATV rider decides to do a wheelie for whatever reason, it almost always ends in tragedy. We know you'll eventually push the boundaries like an underage college student who drinks. So, don't put your weight on a seat or grab a bar when doing this. If you don't, you'll likely crash flat on your back, possibly on your quadriceps.

  • Clutch and Shifting Practice

Suppose you learned to drive a manual transmission in a car and practice shifting and using the clutch before moving on to the next level. If you can figure out how to change gears effectively, you'll keep returning for more.

  • Get Used to Applying the Breaks

Riding an ATV is commonly thought of as an exhilarating, fast-paced activity. Everything you've heard is true. However, if you want to move faster, you must slow down. Please get familiar with the brakes and learn how to use them in tandem with traction control and cornering. As well as how to end it.

  • Steering

Observe the handlebars on dirt bikes or bicycles, and you'll discover they're similar to those on ATVs. The steering, on the other hand, is radically altered. An ATV is more like a two-wheeled vehicle than a car, but you must compensate for its size to keep it from tipping over. The opposite side of momentum must be leaned on when taking a hard corner. As a result, if you're turning right, you'll want to rely on the left. When ATV motocross riders make sharp corners, they nearly hang off the side of their motorcycle.

  • Keep Your Elbows Free.

Avoid locking your elbows at all costs. When you strike a bump or other barrier, it can be excruciating.

It can take some time to get the hang of and remember these riding tactics. Every time you get behind the wheel, grab the handlebars and drape your fingertips over the clutch and brake levers. Then gradually increase the speed and difficulty of the terrain while shifting, shifting, and using the brake and thumb throttle. Make sure you're riding with an experienced friend or family member who can provide coaching from behind.
