Today was a public session and jumps and drops were the main focus so I had to isolate the missing skills in each of them and rebuild them to become more controlled rider and therefore faster as a by product.
I made some corrections and set up changes before moving to applying the skills sets to first the drop technique and then drops into corners. The change was immediate for them all and they all said they felt smoother and more controlled than ever before. Onto jumping , and first i used a 6ft tabletop and gap jump which we worked on gradually adding speed and effort before they were all flying over the jump, a couple even rode the gap jump side a few times.
The session ended on a trail that required riders to choose to jump or pump sections of a trail and corner through three lined berms and jump again.
Cracking session, high5!
