We address the enhancement of electron transport in semiconductor superlattices that occurs in combined electric and magnetic fields when cyclotron rotation becomes resonant with Bloch oscillations. We show that the phenomenon is regular in origin, contrary to the widespread belief that it arises through chaotic diffusion. The theory verified by simulations provides an accurate description of earlier numerical results and suggests new ways of controlling resonant transport
