Leigh's one to one session
We moved onto the drops and Leigh was so comfortable now that I could teach him to style in the air too.
From there, we moved onto the skills trail and I worked on linking the 14 sections on the trail together. Bermed, flat, off camber and switchback turns were linked to pumping, rock gardens, drops and steps. It didn't take him long to be riding end to end and fast too!
We moved onto the 6ft tabletop and gap jump and that proved no problem at all anymore as he sailed over both with ease. The session was moving along nicely as the physical skills became an unconscious action and the mental questions I teach were applied. On the pump and jump trail We linked pumping, jumping, cornering and manuals along the trail which blew Leigh away big time as he never thought he'd be able to manual in such a short time frame.
I then worked on the different applications of the skills set when riding steeps.
