How do you press the front part of the thigh against the handlebar while having the leg over? I am getting comfortable putting my leg over the handlebar and remove it but I can't push hard enough against the pedal. It seems like in the video the rider pushes with the front part of his right thigh against the handlebar to create the leverage to push back the pedal. I believe this is the trick to lock the cranks, otherwise there is no way I can lock it.
I am trying to do the leg over to the same side as the locking leg so I can bail out safely. I crashed pretty badly yesterday by attempting to do the leg over to the same side as it is not possible to bail out.
