MTB Practice Lab AMA (Ask Me Anything)
Our first AMA is Sunday, October 16, 7-9 PM, CDT. However, it starts now. Huh?
I want to experiment with a periodic MTB Practice Lab AMA (ask me anything).
An AMA is Q&A interactive online session in which one person answers questions from an audience. AMAs typically are synchronous, i.e., they happen in real-time, for example, through live text chats, webinars, live video streams, etc.
On Substack, AMAs are a hybrid of synchronous and asynchronous interactive text. The host picks a date and time window for the AMA. Subscribers submit questions before and during the AMA.
The cool thing is that Substack AMAs can be more community-focused and not just host-focused.
You can interact with one another before, during, and after the AMA. Everyone can tap into the collective intelligence of those attending.
That means you have an opportunity to help each other and get to know each other.

It’s open for your questions now. Comment below.
Introduce yourself in a sentence or two, and then post your question. (If you aren't sure what to ask, check out my Archive for a handy list of posts I've published thus far.)
And yes, it’s OK to reply to someone’s question before I do.
Contact me via email if you have questions about how this AMA works.

I have enough space/land to set up a little practice/obstacles section/course to practice skills safely. I have no idea where to start or what to do, what tools I need, and my skills are pretty basic. The question is: starting from basics, how would you set this up?
Hi Griff. I am John Harris, a 68 year old mountain bike rider from Northern Michigan. I do a lot of cross country races but this year I spent a lot of time working on technique. It is obviously a lifelong journey. The more I learn, the more and more there is to go back and practice. How do you continue to practice everything? I have stated to chart out the many drills I now do so that I can keep rotating though, doing some each practice. But I also spend much of each practice on a new skill I am trying to master. Am I on the right track?
