Re: Teaching front rolls

Hi Ellis,

I think you're right, but I'd distinguish further between the average person's look-over-the-shoulder, accomplished with a head turn (basically pivoting on the spine), and the cyclist's look-behind, accomplished by ducking the head down and looking past your shoulder/upper arm, with your head sideways to upside down. I don't think the head-turn looking over the shoulder is what you want to prepare for a roll, while the cyclist's head-duck seems like the right thing.
