- Hold your head slightly above your bar during the Railey
- Bring back the front knee
- After the apex of your jump rotate your head in the opposite of your riding direction

- Your body will follow at this moment
- Accelerate your body by tucking in the knees a bit if needed
- Bring the bar as close as possible to the hip
- Hold your grip tight!
- Now land it with your head and body down
