Rob's one to one session
Rob came to me on recommendation from a previous rider and on meeting i gave him the outline for the session and gave my commitments to him.
The skills check revealed the areas that needed work and also uncovered some great habits.
I changed Rob's set up too and then we moved onto the drop sections.
Rob said he had a habit of going over the bars and I could see why as a body position habit needed correcting. Once it was corrected Rob began sailing through the air and landing perfectly.
Next we moved onto the skills trail and it's 14 sections contained within it.
Working our way down the trail methodically, we linked each section to the next.
We linked pumping. rock gardens, steps, drops and fly out jumps to flat, bermed, off camber and switchback corners.
We moved down the trail, linking each section to the next and the fluidity and smoothness was there for all to see.
I worked heavily on linking drops into berms and we moved onto an isolated berm to solidify this.
Mental tiredness crept in and that ended our session before a physical shut down/ crash occured.
great session Rob.
