Believe it or not, this is the short version!
It was such a good day we got loads of footage from different trail sections as we headed round the lower loop and looked at the best skills and techniques for riding each section.
It was big smiles all the way, apart from when we were being engulfed by clouds of midges! The girls did a great job of getting stuck in and trying out the various skills regardless of the evil winged beasties.
We looked at balance, track stands, body position, weight shifts, front wheel lifts, cornering (flat and berms) step ups and step downs and Chantelle nailed the staircase on homebaked for the first time! Kirsty was the star of the day. She pulled off the best wheelies, rode the steps on the skills loop smoothly, and pretty much copied my exact line round the s-bend berms!! Hats off to Rebecca for being the newbie biker of the group and giving it some beans on each section. Chantelle managed to take herself off the trail before we'd even started the skills training.. thankfully everything was still where it should be and she carried on without any problems. (the crash is at the end)
A top day with a top group..
Some days it really doesn't seem like work!!
Looking forward to seeing you all out on the trails with your new skills:)
