After an informative Friday evening with Ric Jamieson, it was time for some of the Mavericks to meet up at Gawton Gravity Hub (http://www.gawtongravityhub.co.uk/) with Jay Williamson for a great day of coaching. Through out the day we mastered the two tracks HSD and Proper Job with Jay showing us all the best lines and how to ride them properly. We pumped over lumps and bumps, flew over jumps (that were massive of course...), glided across roots, sped around berms and watched Kris go in to multiple trees! My race face pads (http://www.silverfish-uk.com/ProductDetail/8917/13323/Women-s-Khyber-Elbow-Guard and http://www.silverfish-uk.com/ProductDetail/8917/13325/Women-s-Khyber-Knee-Guard) helped me out and made me more confident when there were steep bits, thanks Silverfish.It was a brilliant day of coaching from a great rider, when watching Jay all of our jaws dropped! Thank you so so much for coaching us all and I would defiantly recommend it to anyone!
On Sunday I was determined to us the skills from the day before in the Circus of Dirt and I think I managed to, a bit! After a day of rain, riding and falling off, my legs are quite battered but to say I didn't have a great day would be a lie! The courses were really fun and exciting and riding it in the rain made it more interesting and unpredictable. Thanks to Shred (http://shred.cc/gravity/) for putting on an exciting day and to Rockets and Rascals (http://rocketsandrascals.com/) for the great food to warm us all up afterwards!
The Yeti Arc Carbon was great yet again and it just shows that hard tails can be ridden on downhill tracks! Also, thanks to Alex Law for the photos :)
