Chivas, Matty and brahm's session
We moved onto the skills trail and worked on linking all 14 sections on the trail together by their correct braking areas. Flat, bermed, of camber and switchback turns were linked with upslopes, pumping, steps, drops and rock gardens.
After nearly 4 hrs we moved onto the tabletop and gap jump . Brahm sat it out as he hurt his shoulder earlier so I continued with Matty and Chivas on the jump technique and they began sailing over it from the word go.
I was able to show why the skills set applies to beginning to style it in the air too and Chivas got his teeth into that quickly.
For the final task, we moved onto a 9ft gap jump that he had seen at the end of our first session and now he used his mental skills to decide to ride it 3 times!
A great day ended with us having a cold beer to celebrate an awesome session.
