Two brothers share a session

Today’s session was based around jumping as the two brothers have been riding for years but never felt at all comfortable with jumping and it was my job to show them why.

Owen learns to fly

Owen said he wanted to gain confidence in his riding and has never jumped things like tabletops etc. I explained that mental skills develop as physical errors are eradicated. We began with a simple technique that I teach and then that developed further and by the sessions end, Owen was riding and clearing tabletops, drops and gaps. Railing turns, pumping and riding steeps too.

Awesome progression in a short space of time dude.

Si finds the missing link

Si wanted to develop his jumping from hit and miss to a constant method. I had to adjust his set up and correct his physical skill set before this could happen. We then applied the techniques I teach to various sections on the trail. Pumping, manuals, jumps, drops, corners, gaps and even beginning to style it on a bike too. What a session dude!

Mark and Simon’s second session

Well today was supposed to be 5 of them but it turned into a two to one overnight. I have coached Mark and Si two years ago and I wanted to develop their riding further but also solidify what we did last time.

I needed to work on their weaker right hand turns and also their looking when getting air. The session gradually unfolded and By the end of the session we’d covered linking berms and large tabletops to 14ft, gaps to 13ft, wallrides, drops among other stuff. What an awesome end of another week of coaching

Bmx Nick’s one to one

Nick wanted to sort out his jumping technique as it was always hit and miss and for this he choose his mountain bike so he could get used to jumping tabletops and stop himself twisting on take off.

Looking and body positioning were worked on and he said himself that it was a revelation. Jumping a 7ft tabletop was never easier and far slower than he thought he’d need to go.
