Senior Session

Tam said that he wants to learn to jump this year. What with being 40 and all, he thinks if he doesn't do it now, he wont. Fair enough, push the boundaries and all that. Anyway, I like that attitude, so struck out on the 9am loop with the boys, before cutting short and heading over to the pump track to hook up with Tam. In my sights were manualling pump bumps and getting some decent air on the lower pump loop's hip. I managed the manny, sort of, and did one or two tables on the hip after a bit of tutoring from some kids!

Tam on the hip...



In fairness, for some reason, Tam's seat post was WELDED into his frame and didn't want to move, so this hindered the jumping a bit... But for me, it was good to rool on the pump track on a hardtail - much better!

Tam needs a lesson in focussing...

This hip is really hard to get air on unless your good at riding the bumps as you need loads of speed and a good pop. Fun though.


This guy and his mate were sessioning with us. Bit more pop.
