Paul and Alex move their comfort zones
Paul is a returning client of mine and along with him came Alex. As always the skills check was done and I identified some missing skills and immediately began correcting them. We then worked through the unweighting, pumping and jumping techniques. Slowly things began to really take shape.
We moved onto the 1st coaching trail and worked on cornering and after breaking the trail into segments we linked all the section together using braking zones where necessary.
We then moved onto a trail with gap doubles, larger drop and tighter corners and began linking each section together. Now Paul and Alex began developing their mental skill set as they concentrated and remained mentally relaxed whilst completing each section smoothly.
The gap double at the end was an issue mentally at first but after a speed check run both of them smoothly rode it just like the other sections.
A great day and I look forward to their ongoing contact with me.
