James turns a corner in his riding

James came to me wanting to understand what he is doing on a bike that makes him fall off so much. The skills check revealed the errors and my job was to make him understand why and how to correct this.

By the end of the session he was riding faster and smoother than ever before and by his own admission, got far more than he ever imagined from a session.

Great riding James, high5!

Andy’s one to one skills session

 

Andy has been riding for years and I was able to use his experience from other sports to bring his physical skills back inline. Body positioning was key to his jumping and he quickly knew why it was right or wrong in any section. drops, jumps, wallrides and cornering were all covered in a cracking little session.

Lowey, Dom and Dave’s session

The guys arrived as arranged from various parts of the uk and I began by correcting their set up and their physical errors in the skills sets. Lowey said he was a air in the tyres not air under the tyres kind of rider but that was soon to change with  them all. Drops, steeps, berms, pumping , jumping and gap jumps too were all ridden and they knew why it worked .

Amazing progress in the heat of a very hot day.

High5!

 

Brighton mtb club pt1

Today was the first of two session for Brighton mtb. Paul, Tim, Mick and PAul arrived as arranged and once we’d sorted a bike issue we began. Drops were first on the menu, followed by jumping a 7ft tabletop and gap jump. We then worked on cornering, pumping and linking jumps together.

We linked berms to gap jumps as well as riding wall rides.

A brilliant session in the boiling heat of the day.

High5!

Matt, Paul and James’s skills session

I have coached Matt a couple of years ago and he wanted to return with his mates to have another session and push his riding on a bit too.

I had to work on the small physical changes that make such a big difference in control beofre working on the head game also.

A brilliant session it turned into.

Awesome riding guys.

High5!

Mark’s one to one

Mark had a bad stack last year and wanted to find a way to overcome his fears. I started with finding what he was doing wrong physically and then broke his technique down completely before building it back up. He got his wheels into the air, rode steep drop offs, rode over large obstacles and cornered with far more control than before and in his own words it was a “game changer! ”

awesome progression dude, high5!
