All the way from Yorkshire, a 2 to 1 session.
I found partial footwork and missing body positioning and looking skills and I set about correcting them.
We began with the drop technique and I also worked on installing the 4 mental skills questions I teach and in no time at all they were airbourne and landing perfectly, much to their surprise. Their new body positioning made everything easier and they centered on the bike and the smiles never left their faces.
Onto the skills trail and After some braking and body positioning exercises, we began linking the 14 sections on the trail together.
Pump bumps, upslopes, rock gardens, drops and steps were linked to flat, bermed, off camber and switchback turns by the correct braking areas. We broke the trail down and worked our way along it so as not to crowd an already re-wiring mind and soon they were riding fluidly and controlled but way faster than ever!
An awesome session to end a fantastic week of coaching for me.
