Open Jumps & Drops 11/10/14 

Had a great day today with Rob who has been on our Core Skills course relier in the year and Chris and Jason from Abadare MTB club which is one of the bigger groups down here in South Wales on an open Jumps & Drops course. After a quick brief and a chat to see what everyone wanted to get out of the day in Afan Lodge we got out on the bikes and pretty soon we had the guys pumping and manualing with ease.

Using the i pad for direct feedback is great as you really get to see what your doing so it helps reinforce when you get things right and helps you 'see' the things you want to tweak too. 

We then had a look at  different ways to 'bunny hop' before exploring our Pump Track too. After a spot of wicked lunch in the bar at the Lodge we got back out to put it all in to practice again and had a look at different ways to ride drop Offs. 

We finished off the day off looking at developing their jumping skills nice and progressively. Rob got his first double nailed and Chris and Jason were sending the larger jumps with ease by the end of the session. 


The Abadare boys were flying!


Really good day with a great group of guys, they all have lots to take back out to the trails now and over time it will develop in to their instinctive riding.

See you all out on the trails!
