Glyn gets his wings

Glyn was bought the session as a voucher and today was the day. I was able to draw on his judo and bmx experience to use muscle memory from these and apply it to his mountain biking.

He wanted to work on fluidity and jumping. I’ll let the videos and pics tell the story.

Rad session dude, High5!

Vicky and Steve’s session

Today’s session focussed on positioning and looking. I worked on the mental skills , especially when getting into the air from drops, tabletops and gaps. I worked hard on cornering too and even when washing out in a berm Vicky knew what she had done in correctly. Great session.

Gordon moves his riding on

I have coached Gordon previously, his last session was two years ago and it was clear he’d worked hard on his skills set and only a couple of small adjustments were needed to make a huge change in his mental approach.

Today was about getting used to more airtime and then applying the skills et to jumping gaps, something he’d not previously done.

Brilliant riding due

Paul finds his edge

Paul is an experienced skier and today was about linking his skiing experience to his mountain biking. I worked on looking and positioning today and then the all important mental skills. Drops, corners and tabletops were first up. We then worked on linking features together and becoming fatser. linking tabletops and gaps were also on today’s menu.

Great improvements Paul and let me know how the riding goes.

High5!

Pete and Scott get their wings

Pete and Scott had wanted to see myself for mountain bike coaching for the last couple of years and finally got round to it this year. The session was about correcting the things they thought they should do and leave them with a simple applicable skills set.

Drops, jumping tabletops, gaps, drop offs, steeps, corners and pumping were all worked on and the guys were riding another level altogether by the end.

great session.

High5!

 

Rich joins the air corps

Rich has been on a journey to be able to jump his mountain bike, eventually his journey led to myself today.

I worked on the missing skills of body positioning and looking and then applied a mental skill set to the techniques required on trails. The change was almost instant and the session grew and grew. Drops, tabletop jumps, corners, pumping, linking jumps as well as various ways to ride steep drops and all ending in linking a line with gap jumps to 9ft. What a session dude.

High5!
