Went for an uplift day at Revs again today with the man who is James Corbett and Ash Stockton, lovely weather, warm sunshine, no wind and bone dry, the tracks were running fast with plenty of grip.

I had a couple of things I really wanted to get dialled so it was time to give them a try, first was the gap jump at the bottom which leads on to a step up jump, James had been telling me I could do it no problem but it was playing on my mind a little, all I needed was speed around the berm to get me over it.

Keep the speed up was on my mind all the way down the run and yes I did it and without even thinking did the step up jump straight after it and guess what all the James told me was right it was quite easy and I did it every run afterwards, so I was buzzing now and we did loads of runs and also did loads of different tracks it was a fantastic Saturday with a Henblas uplift on the Sunday to look forward to as well.

Went to Revs again with James on good Friday, it was quite windy, cool but dry, we did a run on freeride and then a couple of goes on Ghetto, then James said shall we have a go at The Far Side, this track is graded purple and for pro’s only but what the hell lets give it a go it’s steep full of roots and drops but I have to admit one of the best tracks I have ever ridden so we rode it over and over again, suspension was getting hot with all the work and the brakes even hotter, back brake need the fluid changing after a full day of riding the far side will have to give 50 : 01 a go next time.

I also managed to do a few things that I didn’t manage to do the last time, IĀ also had another go at the big gap jump got over it but not as good as I would have liked, that’s one for next time.
