we worked on riding woodwork as they had rode trail centers in the uk and abroad that has wood trails and in an hour were riding 200 meteres of linked wooden trail that ends in a drop from a 7ft high ladder. Now they were smiling ear to ear but we wasn't done yet. We moved to riding dirt jump style take offs and after a demonstration they were judging their speed and landing correctly over a 6ft dirt jump. We later worked on riding fallen trees and the techniques required and again they grasped it and rode them easily as the bmx boy in Dom woke up and he really went back to childhood.
We ended our session linking the an entire trail of jumps, berms, drops and ending in the 9ft gap jump a few times before the boys ended the session citing beer at the local pub as too strong a draw. Amazing progression, High5!
