Paul’s birthday bash

I have taught Paul on his birthday for the past four years and John, Dean and Paul joined him for the session. Paul wanted to push his riding on but also watch his friends improve also, especially Griff who’d not seen me previously.

What a session! Drops, jumps, berms, woodwork, wallrides, gaps and large drops from the woodwork were all demonstrated by myself and then they used their mental skills to ride them.

Amazing, High5!

 

Stag day on mtb’s

Tim’s one to one

Tim contacted myself after verbal recommendations from lots of other riders. He wanted to get more flow through corners and also jump and anything else we could work on. Well, The skills check showed the areas that needed work physically beofre I could work on the mental skills. By the end of the session, we’d covered pumping, drops, jumping tabletops and gaps to 9ft, manuals through doubles, steeps , drop offs and wall rides. Phew, what a session.

High5 Tim!!

 

Matt discovers the rider within

I coached Matt 5yrs ago and he returned wanting to maybe push his riding on but also to discover why he keeps getting things wrong lately. I found positioning and looking needed work and then the session went wild!

Drops, tabletops to 14ft, wallrides, cornering, pumping, gaps to 13ft were all part of this session. Amazing progression in a short space of time. Matt called an end to the session as he was too tired and happy to continue 🙂

High5!

 

 

Father and son session

Mark got his son Zac a session for xmas and today was the day. I corrected their missing skills and then worked hard on the mental skills. I then demonstrated everything before they choose whether to ride sections using the mental skills. A fantastic session unfolded.

I’ll let the pictures tell the story.

High5!

 

Tom and Jason’s two to one session

I coached Tom in August last year and he returned for another session and brought his mate Jason with him. I worked on the physical skills and then the mental skill set to enable them to ride gaps, tabletops, corners, steeps and drops. Awesome session guys.

High5!
