Brilliant Training day

I learned so much from a day with Charlie in Crystal Palace. We worked on cornering, off- camber, dismounts and remounts, climbs and drop offs and starts. Charlie has a great way of breaking down each element and then building up gradually to the full manoeuvre.
Overcame some fears and took away a list of things to keep practising.
Will be returning soon!
