It wasn't long before we were working on the whole skills trail and linking all 14 sections together via identified control areas and especially line choice when linking drops into turns.
We worked on body positioning when jumping and used 2 different sized tabletops for this , 14ft and 6ft and we worked on speed, effort and distance of flight.
Onto riding near vertical drop offs and I demonstrated 2 ways of doing so which Nick used his mental skills to ride also and was amazed at the simplicity of it all. We worked on the complete trail above the drop off and soon was riding the whole trail and becoming smoother and faster as a result, even moving the bike in the air too. Alpine style switchbacks next and using the same skills sets, he rode them with ease and control too. What a session and we wasn't done yet. We moved to the pump and jump trail to work on absorbtion at speed and linked into the 2 berms we had worked on previously.
Amazing session Nick and keep in touch with how the riding goes.
