For our final application of the skills set, we moved onto pumping and jumping so each rider had to generate their own speed using the pump technique to be able to jump a 9ft tabletop.
Our session ended soon after to cold beers and smiles all round.

We moved onto the skills trail and worked on linking the 14 sections contained with in it together. Pumping was used instead of pedaling and we used the speed to link berms, off camber, switchback and flat corners, rock gardens, steps, fly out jumps and drops.
For our final application of both the mental and physical skill sets we moved onto jumping tabletops. I used the 6ft tabletop and gap jump for this and in a few small steps Alan was sailing over it and smiling ear to ear.
