14th Oct public singletrack session

Six riders turned up as arranged and I set about installing a skill set that involved changing their foot and body position and looking. I worked on the mental skills too and demonstrated on a drop and they followed suit and that set the tone for the session.
We did braking control exercises and worked on line choice when linking drop offs into corners. We began on the skills trail and worked on the mental side of riding rocks and applying their new skills there and soon they were riding the top half of the trail incorporating, pumping, absorbing, rocks, and 4 corrners. We worked on that for a while before moving down the trail and linking all 14 sections of the trail together with more control and speed than ever before. Flat, bermed, off camber and switchback turns were all ridden easier and they knew why it was right or wrong in any section.
We ended the session with working on carrying speed through 2 corners and for that  I used 2 berms and they began fine but soon started to make small errors again as they were all tiring and our session came to a happy close.
Awesome start to the weeks coaching.
