Thanks Julle...my control is far from perfect but I'm improving.
Update: I've been riding more and doing a little better in terms of going bigger, in all areas of riding really. I did more of a XC ride in Malvern that was great, I did get hot on the climbs but seemed to get up them all ok. In dirt jumping I have been working on tweaking the bike, seems to be getting more natural. In trials I am managing bigger stuff, did some of the biggest taps I have ever done last monday (a tap is when you jump up an obstical by smacking the front wheel into it).
I haven't ridden any Downhill for a couple of weeks now...hoping to go to the Forest of Dean on sunday though
I'm still working on my house so that keeps me fairly busy but when I get my bedroom sorted I'm thinking of getting some weights and stuff to train with, hopefully develop more power.
