Murray and Chris's 2 to 1 session
Murray has been with me before and for this session brought along Chris.
The skills check showed me what had stuck with Murray from before but also the missing and present skills in Chris too!
I adapted their set ups and once corrected we moved as always to the drop technique.
Both Murray and Chris were landing perfectly in no time at all so it was time to move onto the skills trail.
On the skills trail, we worked on pumping and linked it into flat, bermed, off camber and switchback corners. Steps, rock gardens, fly out jumps and drops.
We worked methodically and gradually down the trail, adding the next segment to the previous before finally, we were riding the entire trail.
Body position, footwork and looking were developed to grate effect as they began to flow along the trail faster but smoother than before.
I worked on the mental skills too and they applied them positively through out the session.
Our session ended as mental fatigue began to show and before the errors became larger.
Awesome session guys!
