Harry and the Herts-Essex forum guys
I moved onto the skills trail and worked on pumping and linking a berm, flat corner, rock garden and 2 more turns. It took a while but after I put them through a body position correction exercise they all began cornering with more speed and control. I soon added the fly out jump and linked in the corner with a step on the exit. I worked on both pushes here and their application and after a break we worked on linking corners into drops and into corners. Now they were riding the trail end to end and every rider made errors but they were now self diagnosed and the errors moved around on each run.
I could see some were tiring but I moved onto the pump and jump trail to work first on pumping and then onto jumping and manualing sections on the trail.
After over 6 hours our session ended as mental and physical fatigue hit home and we celebrated a great session with a cold beer as the rains came.
