road to off road with Adel

Adel is an accomplished road/track rider and came to me for some coaching for riding off road, so as always i ran her through the skills checks, and corrected any errors here, before moving onto work further on cornering. I allowed her to work on the technqiue further using a hillside, and then began linking two corners together. We worked on the first half of the trail, linking both bermed and flat corners, as well as rock gardens. Each run was getting faster and more in control than the previous one. We then worked on drops, and applying a mental skills set to the physical one. After lunch, we split the last half of the trail in two, and she was riding fly outs and drop offs, as well as some more bermed corners. Our session came to an end here due to tiredness. Thanks for listening today Adel!
