The day with Gavin began with a new version of my skills health check. We then went onto pumping and unweighting the bike. Gavin really got the hang of things fast!
He said he cannot bunny hop at all and is scared of fallen trees laying across the trails so I seized the oppotunity to demonstrate the technique and Gavin was stunned how easy it is to do.
He got the hang of unweighting the front of the bike so well that he took to the drop technique 1st go!
We then worked on his footwork, speed management and looking into the next with all section including cornering.
Gavin ended the day flowing fast down the trails and even climbed using his new skill set. He rounded the day off perfectly by riding a section he would previously have found impossible but now it's well within his "comfort zone" .
Simply an awesome day.
