Trish Bromley joins us this week. Trish became the first woman to participate in the CrankWorx Whistler Speed and Style in 2015. This year she has been up to lots of adventures including recovering from an injury that occurred earlier in the season. Trish takes us through how she helps new riders ride on the pump track and learn to jump. Some really great tips, tricks and cue words to take with you to your next bike park session or trail ride.

video of Trish checking course out and working through the obstacles and mental challenges!

See foam pit image ->
Trish Also mentions ‘resy’ which is the next step after foam-pit when trying skills. Basically a plastic sheet over foam padding to soften any bails as you try crazy tricks, like this back-flip Trish was working on in this video.
