Julia and Krystal contacted me for a skills session after they had bought new bikes from Marshall’s cycles and decided to ride to the new forest and back in june this year.
After going through the skills check and some braking and cornering techniques we moved onto contrlled braking on steep singletrack.
Krystal then applied the same skills to roll downs/drop offs.
oh, and cornering!
Julia showed great commitment and control on the descents.
After applying the skill set to all the techniques on the trails we moved onto climbing. I demonstrated the technique and we worked on gear selection and cadence as well.
Overall the day covered a wide spectrum of techniques using the mental and physical skill set. The girls left feeling confident that their trip will be alot more fun now on the off road sections.
