Making Quick Stops on a Turn
Being able to come to a quick stop while making a turn is also important. Set up the same course you used for braking in a turn.
Four cones are labeled in a field seen from a top-down perspective. The first and second cones are 100 feet apart horizontally, while the third and fourth cones are directly above and below the second cone, respectively.
A person riding an ATV drives from the first to the second cone, then turns to the left to reach the third cone.
Start from the first marker in second gear, and turn toward marker #3 after you pass marker #2 on the outside.
After you pass marker #3, stop as quickly as possible while downshifting into first gear.
A person riding an ATV corrects back to center after swerving to the side.
