Bringing the rider out in Simon
We began with the drop technique and after demonstrating, Simon followed suit and rode all 3 drops with ease. From there, we moved onto the skills trail and worked on applying the skills sets to linking sections on a trail together. Rock gardens, pre jumping, steps, drops and fly out jumps were all linked via the correct control zones to berms, flat, off camber and switchback turns. Before long, Simon was riding top to bottom smoother and faster than before and had a big grin on his face as the kid inside shone through.
