Bringing the rider out in Paul
We moved onto the skills trail and I worked hard on his cornering technique. Pre jumping, rock gardens, steps, drops and jumps were linked to bermed, flat, off camber and switchback turns. Braking areas were identified and used to link each section to the next and after a while, Paul was flying along the trail end to end and so much faster than ever before.
Jumping tabletops was next on the menu and soon he was clearing the 6ft tabletop and then he rode his first gap jump too of 6ft! A good few goes and it was time to move on again and we moved to the pump and jump trail to work on pumping, jumping and manualing sections on a trail and it didn't take him long at all to get to grips with the application of his skill set there too!
Great session Paul,high5!
