We began with the drop technique and the effect was pretty much immediate, Dave began landing with more control than ever before and took no time at all to ride all 3 drops!
We moved onto the skills trail and worked on linking the 14 sections contained within it together using the identified control areas. Flat, bermed, switchback and off camber turns were linked to drop offs, rock gardens, steps, fly out jumps and pump bumps. Mid way through, I moved Dave onto the pump and jump trail to work on his pumping to give his brain time to digest the cornering from the other trail and that break proved a great move as once we moved back to the skills trail, Dave was riding more fluidly and faster than ever.
Amazing session Dave.
