A race performance skills day with Darren.


We began by assessing the skills already present in Darren’s riding and added the missing ones.

I then worked on his cornering technique ,focussing on footwork and looking.

I then showed how in an under rotated riding position the skills apply in the drop technique.

Also the drop off roll down technique.

Finally, we stiched the skills together into techniques and applied them on the different trails and showed that drops are not just done by downhillers and freeriders, it’s not about the bike!
It’s about the skills we apply. thank you Darren for a great day.

    Awesome day Tony, thanks for all the good advice. Been sticking plenty of it into action this weekend. Cleared all of the technical sections at Sheringham in over a foot of snow. Head up and away I went, job done!
