Jamie returns

 Jamie came to see me last year and wanted to return to push his technical riding further. We began with drops and then linking drops into corners just to refresh hi. Jamie soon got into the swing of things and I worked on his take off body position and that set the theme for today along with working on his mental skills.
 We moved onto the 6ft tabletop and the nemesis (last time) gap side . It took no time at all for Jamie to sail over the tabletop and then the gap jump to whoops of joy.
 Next, we moved too riding steeps and on a near vertical drop off he used his mental skills and body position to easily ride it and that blew him away. Onto a new trail and we began linking a short steep drop off to a corner and jump. Footwork played the key role in the slippy mud and he began riding smoothly and fast!
Next, we took a break as we mended a puncture and then resumed with riding alpine style switchback and the required footwork and body positioning. The session was really progressing so I moved onto a 15ft tabletop to work on Jamie’s speed judgement and seeing him riding with confidence at speed was awesome as he sailed into the air every time. We ended our session by working on linking 2 berms with no braking between before Jamie called an end to the session as he was tired.
Amazing improvements dude.
High5!
