SI, Rich and Mark from All the gear no idea
We moved onto the skills trail and began working on linking the 14 sections on the trail together using the correct braking areas. pumping, rock gardens, steps, fly out jumps and drops were linked to flat, off camber, switchback and bermed corners. Before long they were riding the whole trail end to end faster and smoother than ever before. I worked on line choice too when linking drops into corners and that made a big difference to their overall control.
We moved onto the pump and jump trail where I worked on developing their pumping further and also on the application of their skills to the technique of manuals too. After nearly 5 hours mental tiredness began to creep in and our session came to a natural close and a cold beer each.
Great session guys and I'll see you again soon.
