We soon moved from the drops to the singletrack itself and its 14 sections that are contained within it. Berms, flat, off camber and switchback turns were linked via control areas and line choice to pumping, steps, drop offs, up slopes and a rock garden. We worked hard on their footwork as that lays a foundation for the body positioning to take effect and soon they were riding the trail end to end a lot faster and more controlled than ever before. A midway break for food and coffee helped them to keep their energy levels up and a good few more runs of the trail saw them begin to self assess their errors in any section.
Lastly, we moved to riding steep sections and the required body positioning. Both of them felt way more controlled in descending now and Richard was blown away at how simple a near vertical drop off was to ride with his new skills sets.
Awesome session, high5!
