Helping the mental side of Jon's riding
On the drop sections, I was able to work with him on styling it in the air as his new body position made it easy to do so. After a body positioning exercise on the hillside we moved onto the skills trail and began working on techniques to make him faster by absorbing sections and linking them others. Flat, bermed, off camber and switchback turns were linked to fly outs, steps, drops, pre jumping and rock gardens and soon he was flying down the whole trail linking the 14 sections together so smoothly.
