A birthday present for Tash.
We worked hard on cornering in many different types of turns, berms, flat, off camber and switchback turns were all ridden with the same result of control and speed of exit. I worked on pumping and carrying speed through two berms before moving to the skills trail and working on each scary section, as Tash put it before linking them all together. Rocks proved no issue, nor did steep up slopes that she felt she'd fall backwards if she rode up it, soon the fears dissipated as her control of the trail grew and grew as did her speed and smile.
We ended our session on the 6ft tabletop, which in her wildest dreams she never thought she'd ever be able to ride and she was popping into the air beautifully. Mental fatigue soon got the better of her and we ended the session. Amazing improvements Tash and let me know how the riding goes.
