Stu and Amanda's pre verbier tune up
Next we worked on cornering and then carrying speed through berms before a break for coffee beckoned. We resumed with moving to the skills trail and working on fluidity and linking the sections on the trail, including the 4ft drop into the final corner which both Amanda and Stu were now easily doing and the line choice and braking made the following turn easier too.
We worked on steeper terrain and different ways of riding near vertical drop offs and that was something that stuck in Amanda as she had a fear of such sections.
We moved to another trail to work on jumping and pumping multiple sections of a trail and linking 2 berms at the end together. Every run got better and better and the cornering now was really cementing as they both got faster with less effort and Stu rode the 7ft gap jump that followed, he wasn't done there as even though they were knackered he still had time to ride the 9ft gap jump that followed a couple of times before calling an end to the session. What a great session with an amazing couple.
