Like an English novel where the horses have been replaced by motorbikes, the granduer of the Hay’s property near Kumeu is always inspiring, especially now that a turn track has been added to the bermed and ramped moto goodness under the trees and beside the road.
Riley and Millen were first to try out the turn track aboard their little KTM machines, tearing up the grass one blade at a time as we made some important changes to their style and completed with some motivating stop watch work.
Out of the Forest
It was the iPad that we got out for Lochlainn. Being able to see what he needed seemed to help, and also unlike the group before, his session was mainly about jumping. We hit the supercross-like section dozens of times until not only was he jumping bigger but also landing safer with more time to make the turn. It turns out that you can’t do much braking while bouncing!
Our last session at the Hay’s place was our friend Baxter Davis, and it was a good thing he was by himself. We needed to get very tough on him before his brain could convince his body to lock in. He proved that even the youngest riders can have the most stubborn habits but we certainly got there in the end- and we are working on the next session to make sure it sticks.
