When Mike contacted me he explained that he is getting back to riding after breaking his back. He spoke of wanting to gain in confidence that he lost when he crashed.
After analysing his riding during my skills health check I saw he wasn’t looking far along the trail but directly down through his wheel. I set to put that right.
Section after section Mike demonstrated the uptake of his new skill set and gained confidence throughout the day.
We worked on cornering.
The drop technique.
We worked on climbing too.
By the end of the day Mike was flowing down the trails with renewed confidence and control. I read about his crash last year when he posted from his hospital bed and I sent him healing vibes then, today it was a pleasure to watch him back where he belongs.
