Most riders skip it in preference of going straight into the back mobe, and once they land that then they’re unlikely to go back to the wrapped version.

It’s a more unusual sight than the classic Raley to Blind and therefore should hopefully get you a few whoops from your peers. The best part of this move is that by preceding the blind with a shifty, you…
