bad ankle pain in lead foot
Started riding last season and get pain in the ankle of my lead foot. The pain is in the anterior outer ankle in the area of the ATFL (anteroir talofibular ligament).
I get a lot of discomfort here when riding the lift and the pain becomes really bad when riding moguls and trees agressively. Today it is very tender and I actually have some swelling, this has happened before. Probably wont be able to ride for a week.
I noticed that when charging down hill fast I keep maybe 70% of weight on my front foot and feels like I am rolling my foot in and most of the weight is on my outer foot. Off the board when I simulate riding I get this feeling when my front knee is more down the hill than my ankle, which causes my ankle to roll.
I'm wondering if I'm leaning too far down hill and putting too much weight on my front foot. Stance is goofy at 23". Have tried narrower and wider without benefit. Angles are +15/-9. Have tried between 9-18 on the front without benefit.
Anyone have any ideas on what I am doing wrong?
