Jamie and Andy come to Herts for a session
I really worked hard on Andy's feet placement in his right hand corners and we worked on a body correction excersise to assist them both in gaining more grip before moving onto the skills trail itself.
Pumping was used to gain speed from the trail, rock gardens, fly out jumps, drop offs and steps were linked via their braking areas to flat , bermed, off camber and switchback turns. We worked our way down the trail, always working on bite sized chunks of the trail before adding it to the previous and before long we were riding the whole trail end to end. They were now riding faster and smoother than ever before and any errors were being self diagnosed too as they knew why any section was right or wrong.
After nearly 5 hours I could see they were tiring mentally and our session came to a close after a few more runs of the drop sections. They wanted me to ride some woodwork for them so I gave a demonstration of the same skill set in use in my own riding.
Awesome session guys.
