We moved onto the skills trail and I broke it into segments so they could focus on small chunks of the trail before linking the whole trail together.
Pumping, rock gardens, steps, fly out jumps and drops were linked to flat, bermed, off camber and switchback turns. As we worked down the trail their speed and control was awesome to see as they confidently rode the trail. I worked hard on barking control and line choice and before long they were flying down the whole trail with smiles on their faces.
Our session ended as mental tiredness hit and they had nothing left so we retired to the shade and a cold beer to celebrate an awesome session.
