Bob took up a short notice availability session I had and when he arrived he said that he wanted to learn to jump. I asked him what other sports he’d done and I used that experience to develop his riding.

Drops were first followed by jumping a tabletop, that done we moved to gap jumping and much to his surprise he sailed over it. Thta was his first ever gap jump and at the young age of 64!

Cornering was where he really found his skiing pay off as I showed him why it worked in mountain biking too.

By the end of the session he was flying down a trail and jumping, pumping and railing turns.
