Circles at E and B need to stay full and round, ride fully into corners to help balance. Correct moments throughout the test show a pair with plenty of ability. Accuracy of transitions today was average, you're ready for greater accuracy. To ride transitions before the prescribed letter is an error. Be accurate! Keep those points!
