Gymkhana training...

I had the good fortune to meet a gymkhana + trials riding champ, Yoshi, from Japan who had settled in the Toronto area. Yoshi was my instructor for my riding course some years ago and taught me some low speed skills after the training day was over. We used the cones & markers from the training course, did some tight corners, tight slaloms and then tried to see who could spend the most time going from A to B in the slalom. Yoshi had me beat by a good few minutes while he just kept the bike balanced at a stop between cones for ages. I've been itching to commit more time into gymkhana riding for years since and pestering him to start running lessons!

It's wickedly fun!
