Pete and marc's paths lead to Herts
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.
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.
