Barry's one to one session
The first technique we applied the skills to was as ever the drop technique and it didn't take Barry long to dial it. From there we moved to the skills trail and worked on linking the whole trail together over the next couple of hours. Pumping, rock gardens, steps, jumps and drops were all linked via braking areas to flat, bermed, off camber and switchback turns. A welcome break mid way for food was a good idea as he was tiring but on resuming he began linking the whole trail together.
I moved onto the 6ft tabletop and gap jump and after a few corrections, Barry sailed over it with ease and even rode the gap jump a few times too!
Our session ended when I saw mental tiredness appear and we went to the Bull pub in the village to celebrate an awesome session and a great end to a fantastic week of coaching.
