Some skills coaching and some snow

 Karen, Helen, Martin and Simon made the trip down the night before and during the night it snowed. The session was touch and go as to whether to go ahead but we went ahead and covered what we could. The skills check showed footwork, looking and body position needed work collectively and i made some set up changes that totally changed their distribution of weight on the bike.
I worked on the drop technique first and worked on unweighting to  take off and their body positioning before moving onto the skills trail to work on pumping and linking 2 corners together.
 A break for hot drinks and we resumed with linking drop offs and corners together via braking areas and line choice. Conditions grew worse and we decided to delay the rest of the session for another day as vision effected confidence and that wouldn’t be a good learning envioroment.
 See you again guys !
