Karl's day began with the skills check as usual and I found he had some good natural skills . I identified the areas which needed work and we set to work on his speed management and footwork.
We worked through un weighting the front of the bike and then onto pumping . By the end of the pumping technique Karl was stunned how far he got without the need to pedal down a trail . We moved onto the drop technique and then onto jumps. A few minor tweaks were made to Karl's set up and the result was better body positioning.
I then moved us to cornering and we worked on two different trails, linking all the sections on each together and using the trails energy more efficiently and not his own.
Our session ended with us working on line choice into tight corners.
Awesome day Karl!
