Completely forgot about this thread!
Just as an end of season recap, no video this time!
Huge thanks for the advice! Mainly the results we felt were:
We both found that we were lasting much longer
, generally on previous occasions, our back legs/quads would be burning and starting to cramp towards the end of the day. But we did find that we were not feeling that pain anymore - nowhere near as intense as before. It has been a conscious struggle to try to end the ruddering and seems we have decreased it to an extent.
I have been using alpine replay and measuring my speed - it jumped 10kph+ without trying to push it.
I did feel that I was squatting a bit too much getting into toeside turns and looked as if I was taking a dump - turns did feel better and will probably work this out as I get to ride more.
Looking forward to next season to pick this back up and to get my riding smoother!
I'll let you guys get into your season in the northern hemisphere and watch from the sidelines
