A cornering excersise was next before we moved to the skills trail and began working hard on their cornering and trail fluidity.
Flat, bermed, off camber and switchback turns were linked to rocks, pumping, jumps, steps and drops. We moved down the trail methodically and always added the next section to the previous ones. Before long, they were riding the 14 sections end to end and getting faster and smoother as a result. I did some work on body positioning when riding steeper sections and from there we moved to the 6ft tabletop to work on jumping.
In a few short steps they were airbourne and both Marcus and Rich cleared it and then rode the 6ft gap jump whilst Russell worked on his timing on the tabletop.
Lastly, we moved to the pump and jump trail to work on absorbing sections on the trail and choosing which to jump or pump to stay resonant with the trail.
Five hours since we began they declared tiredness and our session came to a happy close.
Awesome session guys.
