57 years old and flying
We took a break and resumed with linking 2 berms together and working on control areas to carry speed through turns. His new body positioning was paying off as he grew faster with more control.
We then added the sections above the berms and work on absorbing and pumping multiple sections on the trail to carry speed before moving to the one thing Chris had hoped he'd do one day, jump and clear a tabletop. I used a 6ft tabletop for this and in a few short moves, Chris sailed over the tabletop a good few times. The surprise and smile on his face was a picture!
I could see he was tiring but we still had some time left in him so we moved back to the trail above the berms and this time Chris was choosing which section to jump or pump. Our session ended soon after as Chris himself declared himself knackered but happy and we parted ways with a handshake.
Great riding Chris and I told you it was simple :)
