|"Why ride through the rough stuff when |
you can jump it and "catch some sweet air"
|A little discussion. faster corners equals more fun and more adrenaline|
|Then a little demonstration and it was the boys' turn|
Riding fast is one thing, passing those skills on is completely different. I think I learned just as much from coaching as they did. I had to find what body motions and tips could exaggerate the skill I was attempting to teach. For instance...leaning the bike and not your body in corner......push on your inside hand, try to drop that side of the handle bar.
|trying to stay early for the next corner!|
|no more flat corners! Lets work on some berms!|
|Getting them all excited to hit a drop they never had before,|
"If you just set up for it two turns earlier it is so much easier!"
|We worked on line choice here, it was really fun to here the |
guys get excited and bounce ideas off each other
|Bikes are fun, start smiling and you'll get better.|
|The Crew! Thanks guys for the opportunity |
and I hope you learned some too!
It is extremely rewarding to see your advice progress someones riding. By the end of the day everyone was whooping and hollering and high-fives were passed around. Thanks Two wheels for the opportunity to do this and thanks guys for showing up! I hope I made a difference!
