Actually, for his second year he is doing just fine and the speed he rode is appropriate. He cleared the knuckle on that first jump and landed well in the landing zone. Much more speed there and he would have overshot. His speed was well within reason for the boxes he hit and again, on that rainbow, much more speed and he would have launched off of the top of that thing. When making comments like this, try to keep in mind the experience level of the rider and understand that the key to become a better rider is to make steady progression at a pace that reduces the risk of injury....
Heh, I guess that makes sense, although being a younger chap my progression came in bursts of balls rather than a steady development
The only way I could keep my balance at first was to blitz it, probably not the best idea, and thinking back, definitely not the best advice, but hey, worked for me
