What I want to be able to do is to be as smooth and in control as I am on the track when riding in the mountains where some of the drills learnt in CSS don't necessarily work. One that does is wide vision and also having the confidence to properly countersteer. It's goingto be a case of continuing to practice!

It seems counterintuitive and against everything learnt at CSS but solution seems to be that ahead of the
