andre's group session
Andre, Andrew and Paul cam e to me for an air session. the skills check revealed the areas that needed work and Although cornering needed work i developed their push to unweight the front of the bike and after a few set up changes, we moved onto drops.
In no time at all they were landing perfectly and after a short break we moved onto the trail to work on cornering. We linked flat, bermed, switchback and off camber turns to rock gardens, pumping, fly out jumps, steps and drops and the flow began to show immediately.
To end our session we moved onto the tabletop. I worked hard on not only body position and looking but also the mental skill set too.
Their faces as they landed perfectly on the transition of the tabletop was amazing and a picture to behold.
The session ended and I gave them a demonstration of the skill set in use in my own riding on the high woodwork at the herts skills area.
