Paul and Brett uncover the rider inside

Paul and Brett came to me wanting to rediscover the feel for riding their mtbs like their bmx they had as kids.

The skills check showed me the areas that needed correcting physically and that left the mental skills.

We worked hard on the drop technique and that was followed by jumping a 6ft tabletop. That really brought the kid back inside them as they suddenly found the missing link they felt they were missing. They both jumped their first ever gap jump, a 6ft one and then later a 9ft step down gap.

By the end of the session they were clearing step ups and pumping and jumping sections of trail and nailing the three berms to carry speed, not lose it to gin speed to jump and style the final jump.

Awesome riding guys!

High5!
