63yrs old and getting better with age
We too a break and then resumed with jumping using a 6ft tabletop this really paid off as when we moved back to the original trail Mike was able to start to choose when and why to jump or pump.
We then moved onto the skills trail and really worked on linking all 14 sections of the trail via line choice and control areas. Berms, switchbacks, off camber and flat turns were linked to pumping, absorbing, steps, drop offs and rock gardens. Each run was faster than the previous and my fellow coach Nathan turned up to watch and commented on how much better he looked from when we had both coached him during that public session.
We ended our session linking 2 berms together at the end of the pump and jump and he became faster and faster until mental and physical tiredness go the better of him.
Awesome session Mike and I'll see you again soon
