Return of Metalheart Neill
I first worked with Neill in February and I was excited to see what changes had been made to his riding since.
The first thing I did was put Neill through the skills check and I could see that he really took on board the last session.
We worked on the drop technique, ironing out any irregularities in the skills then onto riding down rocky steps. We really worked on Neill's footwork and pushing through with his heals.
Then we moved onto a trail and began working on linking corner sections together. Also we worked on line choice in corners, disconnected bunny hop and adverse cambers. It took Neill a while to not comfort brake but soon was flowing through the sections.
We then worked on linking a drop to 2 corner sections together and even though tiredness was beginning to show Neil confidently rode the sections before finally doing a complete run to the hub for coffee and food.
Keep the improvements going Neill!
