Simon and Katie's day
Simon contacted me saying they have years of riding experience but struggle to link things together and corner properly. After the skills check I identified their missing skills and we began working on re installing them. We moved through un weighting, pumping and onto the drop technique. Both Katie and Simon got to grips with this after a few set up suggestions and things started to gather pace.
I then took them to the coaching trail and separated the trail into 3 segments and we worked on each segment separately before stitching each to the next. Both Simon and Katie's cornering really needed work so we spent some valuable time breaking the old bad habits and re installing the new, more simple skills. Soon, they were sticthing each segment to the next indentifiing breaking zones and sections and flowing down the trail.
we ended the session after mental fatigue showed after just over 4.5hours.
Great session guys!
