Gill and Mark arrived as arranged after booking with me after reading recommendations online. They looked worried as they arrived and when asked what they wished to get from the day, Jumping was top of the list and flow and fluidity on a trail came after.
I found body positioning and looking needed work and of course , their mental skills also.
We then applied their corrected kills to the techniques that I teach on the trails with drop first !
It wasnt long beofre they were landing perfectly and they knew why too. They rode all 3 drops to 1 meter and I was even able to get Mark to style it in the air too.
We moved to the 6ft tabletop and here I spent lots of time working on Gill’s mental skills as well as working on Mark’s judgement of effort for distance. To their surprise they jumped the 6ft tabletop and Mark rode the gap jump side a few times too. We took a break for coffee and resumed with corners and pumping and absorbing sections of a trail. Soon they were choosing what to jump, pump or absorb and linking three berms together and the following jump too. Amazing stuff!
We worked on steep drop offs and a near vertical drop off proved simple as I demonstrated different ways of riding such sections without having to get air. Back to the pump and jump trail and Mark rode the 7ft ladder gap and Gill was happily popping into the air by choice rather than accident as before today.
We moved to singletrack and worked on line choice and breaking areas when linking the sections on the trail and all 9 corners and other sections really flowed together. Gill was knackered and called n end to her session and Mark agreed too and an amazing day with an awesome couple cme to an end. Some dys just shouldn’t have to end.
