Carl's Day Of Discovery
Carl contacted me knowing that he is missing something in his riding. After the skills check I discovered his looking into the next section was non existent. this gave me a starting point and i built Carl's skill set from there.
We worked on unweighting, the disconnected bunny hop and pumping before moving onto the jump technique. After a few body and bike set up suggestions , Carl was beginning to jump the table top with less effort and was simplifying the technique.
We the moved onto a trail and worked on corners and linking sections together. Slowly at first, Carl started to flow from section to section and even after over thinking the drop section at the end of the trail at first, he began to relax and stay tall on drops and not collapse and suck up the drop.
Awesome riding Carl!
