We began with drops and the new mental and physical skills paid off straight away as he landed perfectly and never looked back, even styling it in the air. We quickly moved onto the skills trail and began working on cornering and linking sections on the trail together. Flat, bermed, off camber and switchback turns were linked to pre jumping, fly out jumps, steps, rocks and drops. Soon, Nik was riding the whole trail end to end and smiling all the way.
Finally, he linked in a 9ft gap jump to the line also and the smile was beaming over his face as he said the session exceeded his wildest expectations. Our session ended after nearly 5hrs to a pint in the local pub to celebrate an awesome session.
Great riding Nik, high5!
