A day with Marcus and friends
Marcus, Stu and Steve arranged a private group session with me and although after the skills check I discovered idiosyncrasies with their missing skills they all had a common fault, looking.
We moved onto un weighting the front end of the bike, pumping and also the dis connected bunny hop. All of those techniques were worked on until all four physical skills were present and it came time to work on the drop and jumping technique.
The guys over came the early lack in confidence and really got to grips with both these techniques so I then moved them onto a trail and we worked on all the sections present.
Cornering and braking zones were worked on, as was trail energy management. gradually we worked our way down the trail linking methodically all the sections one by one before finally ending our session working on the end segment of the trail where we worked on linking corners to drop sections.
Great session guys!
