Al’s skills session

Al came to us on recommendation and the session began with the skills check. I needed to work on Al’s body positioning and looking skills and that is something that Al will continue with as homework.

We began with cornering on the flat and then through berms as well as pumping. We worked on riding singletrack smoother and using both mental and physical skills and applying them to the techniques required.

Flat, berms, off camber and switchback turns were linked to drops, steps, rocks and pumping undulations of the trail.

By the end of the day Al was even popping off small jumps on the pump trail too.

Today laid a great foundation to build his riding on in the future

High5!
