Thanks all for the tips. Went for an early evening 1.5 hr spin in the woods to put these tips and the S drill into practice. Made quite a change putting la technique francaise into action. Much more control mainly by focusing on keeping upper body more upright, outside foot at 6 o'clock and most importantly the outside elbow high. The latter made a big difference and helped keep weight forward. Flew round the bend where I nearly crashed on Friday!
Interesting that in the past I think that I have been cornering in ready position which outside foot with heels down but more at 3 or 4 o'clock instead of 6. Perhaps this pushed the weight back!
So thanks for the tips everyone!
