I met Nigel in the car park as usual. We had discussed what it was he wanted to get from the skills session beforehand and jumps and drops were top of his list. so I set out installing the skillset and then showing how and why they apply to the techniques in jumps and drops.
we worked on body positioning and footwork before adding speed control .
Sometimes the walk back up was a long one.
we rode a trail that involved berms, drops and ended in a nice gap double.
The day ended with a style session on the step up so nigel could feel how small movements affect the bike and riders position in the air. Nigel's cornering was fantastic by the end of the day and he was flying down some very tight trails. Another great day for ukbikeskills ltd.
