that rider is good. That is such a tight course and he is keeping his knee in. He could drag his knee in every corner if he wanted to but he is doing a timed run.

Oh, interesting, I've only ever heard that term with cars... Most likely Ken Block drifting around random things IIRC.

Sadly the MST teachers have no sense of humor for it, my riding partner was a National Champion Trials Rider in the Expert class 2 years prior to taking his MST. When the instructor said before you mount your bike, push it around to face the opposite direction, he just pulled on the front brake, pushed on the bars until the rear wheel was high in the air and 180'd on the front wheel, then they still made him walk it around in a stupid big circle. The only way anyone could match him in the slow races was to push him over and even after they figured out how skilled he was at riding, they wouldn't let him demonstrate how to ride over the big metal garbage dumpsters.

Will PRS teach me how ride like that?
I kinda suck right now having zero actual training.
I suck at cornering, medium speed, higher speeds, and i sure as heck can't do that at low speed.

^i can't personally ride like that (never tried a cruiser or raised handle bars for those low speed maneuverability) but PRS will give you the basics for you to build your skills to ride like that...

Really trying to get there i think takes a long time and constant practice and patience

on the other hand, i'd rather be proficient in parking lot maneuvers and be a beast on the windys... so that's where i'm spending most of my riding time!
