A group session with the essexhertsmtb forumites
I moved them onto the pump and jump trail where I demonstrated why pumping allowed you to gain speed through sections to be able to jump a 9ft tabletop. The guys got to grips with this and rode the whole trail in the same vein. I finished the session by teaching them why the skill set applies to manualing and they were soon choosing whether to jump, pump or manual jumps.
They were pretty much shattered by the end of the session and a tour of herts and a cold beer was the order of the day. Great riding guys and it was a pleasure to coach you all.
