Kas brings his mate Matt for a skills session
We moved onto the skills trail and began work on linking the 14 sections contained within it together using the identified control areas. Pre jumping, rock gardens, steps, fly out jumps and drops were linked to flat, bermed, off camber and switchback turns. I worked methodically down the trail always adding the previous sections to the newest and soon they were riding the whole trail fast and in control. Any errors were self diagnosed too.
Both sailed over the jumps and Matt was blown away at how easy it all felt as his youth flooded back with memories of bmx and he styled it over the gap jump!
From there I wanted to work on their body positioning when riding steeps and we moved into the quarry for that.
I used a high drop off first to work on both braking and body position and then we moved onto a lower near vertical drop off and I demonstrated 2 ways of riding into them and they followed suit.
Awesome riding guys,
