Critical barrel riding can be a straightforward affair. Literally. No dramatic turns or wild body contortions to confuse the matter just stillness and subtlety. Get it right and it's Zen. 'When the entire body is the eye, while seeing you do not see. When the entire body is the mind, when thinking you do not think.'
Kerry Down, not turning but seeing, thinking and feeling his way through a series of straightforward NSW barrels. Simple, yeah?
