How to Backside Predrift
The toeside (or backside) predrift at high speed is about as gnarly as hands-down slides get. The goal is to be able to scrub just a little speed off on the entrance to a toeside corner, enough to keep your line under control, but not so much that you dump all your speed and come out of the corner at walking pace. You need to be comfortable with speed, and you need to have faith in your wheels. This is a pretty “racey” slide, so you’ll probably be doing it on very grippy race wheels, but you can learn it on something slidier to get the idea.
Find a nice toeside corner – it can be anything from a mellow sweeper to a hairpin – with a decent entry speed. Preferably your location will have better visibility than the sweeper that Jorge is doing it on in this tutorial, and preferably also no horrible Armco Barrier to smash into! You will fall off the road a lot learning this, so find somewhere with a nice grass runoff.
We suggest that you have Coleman slides, frontside predrifts and backside pendulum slides locked in before giving this one a go.
