Matt conquers the berms

June 6th, 2012 by

Diamond Jubilee weekend saw Matt come to Swinley. He’d ridden here a few times before, and felt it was time to try and get a bit more flow and control through the corners. We covered the basic safety checks and briefing before heading out to the trails. We spent a short while just focusing on the control position, braking and bike set-up. We talked through the theory of under rotation, and how this helped in almost everything from control position to pumping. Basic cornering followed the braking exercises; changes to the body position, “dropping your outside foot” and “looking” helped Matt start to flow around the corners, as

of eight exercise. A short session on the Full Nine Yards – working on the four linked corners, where we discussed line choice, looking through the corners, and using the apex of the corners, and not being afraid to broaden out the corners to help you flow through them.

Matt on the Four Corners

We then headed over to “Stickler” to sample the challenges of the new corners recently completed. A series of 3 or 4 linked berms, where you need smooth pedal strokes to transition between each corner and focus ahead. After a few attempts Matt was then flowing through these with ease. As Matt was progressing quickly through the various exercise, we decided to up the stakes a bit and headed onto “Stickler Two”. Here the corners are tighter with slightly bigger berms. Here we walked through the sections first, talking through the body position, where to look and foot work, and then tackled the each of the corners – which get progressively bigger and tighter. After a few attempts on the final one of the tight corners Matt had mastered it, we then reversed the direction and worked on how a different line choice would affect the exit point of the next corner. Our time was almost up by this point so we headed back along Stickler 3, sampling a few of the corners and putting all the coaching into practice.Matt on Stickler II Matt on Stickler IIb The big learning points for Matt were the scanning through the corners, (not just looking straight at the exit!) and the foot work linking to the body position which helps you flow through the corners. All in all a great session; Matt has taken away a number of new tools and techniques to help him through the corners and single track, and as discussed at the debrief – we hope to see you soon out on the trails.
