Singletrack skills public session

 We today was a cracking session. The riders arrived as arranged and I made some set up changes and used my skills check to see the areas they individually needed work on before moving onto the techniques required in riding singletrack. Footwork, looking and body positioning were identified and I also worked on their mental skills. Cornering was first and soon they were riding a berm and then pumping trail features was added. We moved to singletrack and worked on linking 14 sections of  a trail together, identifying control areas and working on line choice. Flat, bermed, off camber and switchback turns were linked to pumping absorbing, drop offs, steps and drops.
 We ended the session with pumping and absorbing multiple sections of a trail and linking three berms together and carrying speed through them all.
Cracking day.
