Pete and marc's paths lead to Herts



















Marc wanted coaching and found me via google. The day arrived and our session began with my skills check. I found they needed work on looking, body positioning and foot work and set about correcting this with a set up change to help.
 The first application of both the mental and physical skills sets was the drop technique. It took no time at all for them both to ride all 3 drops and the ease at it all was striking to them.

We moved onto the skills trail and I began by braking the trail down into bite sized chunks before later linking them all together via braking areas and  line choice.
 Flat, bermed, off camber and switchback turns were linked to  rock gardens, pumping, steps, fly out jumps and drops. They were riding the whole trail end to end and knowing why it was right or wrong in any sections.
 Our final application of the skills sets was to the 6ft tabletop and gap jump. I worked hard on body positioning here and both Pete and Marc were surprised that could clear the tabletop and Marc used his mental skills to ride the gap jump too!
 Our session ended with a welcome pint in the local pub. Amazing riding and improvements guys.
High5!
