I found these guys waiting in the quarry, so after i checked their bikes over, i ran them through the skills check. The main issue was body position with both of them. I started to correct this here, and also made set up changes before covering drops. I gave them a mental skills set nowi, and soon enough with little explanation and a few demonstrations, they where both landing off the largest drop perfectly with control and even style. I then worked on cornering and linking drops into corners, which both linked the two sections together well with speed and fluidity. Jumping was what we worked on for the rest of the day, using the fly out, pump and jump trail, and the tabletop to work on their techniques. About 4 1/2 hours into the session, Rob hit a brickwall due to mental and physical tiredness. I carried on with keith, showing him a few more different gap jumps, until he too reached a stage where he could physically do no more.
Was a pleasure to ride with you both.
