Ruth’s confidence booster.

,After studying the pictures of her riding that Ruth sent prior to attending, I knew her looking into the next was an issue. After correcting it mentally during the skills check, we moved onto pumping and unweighting the bike.
The drop technique followed and in a very short period of time Ruth was confidently riding the drop.
We then moved onto the cornering technique and we worked on footwork and looking.
Ruth was now starting to really flow through sections without worrying what they specifically were and this root drop was no exeption.
Rolling down into this corner proved no problem now as Ruth’s confidence and commitment grew as the day progressed. We ended the day riding top to bottom on the trail and stitching everything together seamlessly. A great end to a great day!
