khp Posted July 14, 2010 Report Share Posted July 14, 2010 Just like Hansi, I was at Gelleråsen for CSS classes in the past weekend. I'd like to say a big thanks to JET, Spidey and Nemo, who were my Level 4 Liaisons and coaches (JET and Spidey swapped roles from Friday to Saturday - actually a brilliant idea). We had a very intimate little Level 4 group going with just three students on both Friday and Saturday, so Spidey & JET got to film all three of us in all the sessions. On the first day, we got working on getting rid of my tunnel vision, and getting that drive working right from the lean angle is set, instead of waiting to the apex, and on the second day I was working on body position. Sheesh, that Knee flick is still difficult to get right! My (very) long legs and arms also meant that I had to figure out a way to move my arms when going into and out of the Hook Turn position, as my knee is in the way of my elbow. Before coming the Gelleråsen, I was a little hesitant regarding doing several Level 4 days in a row, since I was a little disappointed from my first Level 4. What made all the difference was that this time around, I was arriving with a clear idea of where and what I wanted to improve. I had mounted my video camera pointing forwards, and it was actually useful from time to time, since the coaches had problems with their GoPro camera, so we actually used my video to review both my lines, but also one of the other students, as I had happened to be just behind him for about a lap, before passing him. All in all a big thumbs up to the entire CSS UK team and the SMC team for organizing the days, and providing the wrangling, cornerworking and other services.
