John came down from Bolton for his session today. He wanted to get better at cornering and also understand why he gets bucked when jumping. I broke his skills sets down and rebuilt him with an understanding of why it was right or wrong in any section. we worked on pumping, cornering, drops and jumps. John rode his first ever gap jumps today too !
Henry wanted to work on his cornering and his lack of fluidity when riding singletrack. I was able to draw on his skiing and snowboarding experiences to develop his skills set when mountain biking. I worked on his positioning when entering sections of trail as well as his looking too. Berms, flat and off camber corners, drops, jumps, steep drop offs and rocks were all simpler than ever and easier than he’d imagined.
