Bringing the rider out in Brian
The first technique we applied his new mental and physical skills too was the drop technique. It took Brian no time at all to ride all 3 drops and land perfectly so off to the skills trail we went to work hard on cornering. Pumping, rock gardens, steps, fly out jumps and drops were linked to flat, bermed, off camber and switchback turns by the correct braking areas. We moved down the trail bit by bit always adding the previous sections to the next and it wasn't long before Brian was riding the entire trail end to end smoother and faster than ever. Any errors were known by him without me even having to say anything.
I wanted to develop the mental aspect of his jumping so we linked a corner to a 9ft gap jump next and once again, Brian rode it over and over again.
Great session Brian!
