XC skills

Tracey, Steve, Justin and Colin all ride together and wanted to see myself for mountain bike coaching to give them more control in their riding. The skills check showed that I would need to correct body positioning, footwork and also their looking skills as they wanted to get better at cornering. I surprised them by starting with the drop technique as that was something common in most singletrack trails and their new skills sets made a huge difference. We worked on absorbing and pumping as well aslinking one, then two and three berms together before moving to the singletrack trail.

The singletrack trail contains 14 sections and by the end of the session they were all linking them together smoothly and faster than they ever could have previously but most importantly, it was controlled.

Brilliant progress.

High5!
