This weeks lesson starts on some (very trendy) gravel and they move onto a grass to hone in the technique. Emma is still learning super fast and we’re sure she’s destined for greatness in cross. 

For cornering technique, we look at line choice and where to look, entry speed and braking, the technique for mud, how to lean the bike for best tyre grip and unclipping the inside foot for added stability. An action-packed lesson but once these are all learnt, you’ll be flying around corners in no time!
