After a body position correction task we moved onto the skills trail where we worked on linking sections on a trail together. Flat, bermed, of camber and switchback turns were linked to pumping, steps, fly out jumps, rock gardens and drops. I worked hard on linking drops into corners with braking and line choice and it wasn't long before he was riding the whole trail end to end.
I moved Alex onto the 6ft tabletop and gap and in a few small steps he was sailing over the jump. After a few runs Alex used his mental skills questions that I teach to decide to ride the gap jump too!
Our session ended soon after and I gave a riding demonstration of the skills set in use in my own riding on the high woodwork. Great session Alex.
