Ask Thierry Rozier : How can I avoid my legs from swinging back when taking off?

Ask Thierry Rozier : How can I avoid my legs from swinging back when taking off?
Hello Maya,

If you put enough weight on your heels and you are aligned, it will be natural. This is something I’ve never forced. You need to have a good position in your saddle, hence the importance of having a good saddle.

Many people worry about details but it’s the overall that matters. It’s better to focus on the attitude than on a precise detail. I don’t think you need to force yourself to work on a very precise thing.
