Today was pivotal

It was Julian’s session today and he arrived with a bike he loves, his pivot mach4. We immediately got on after that  🙂

Joking aside, it was  pleasure to coach Julian today. He wanted to learn to get air beneath his wheels and feel like he does on his skis.

 

Luke finds out why

 

 

 

Luke came to me last year for mountain bike skills coaching and wanted to return because after a couple of crashes he found himself feeling like a passenger when in the air and wanted to find out why.

The skills check showed the physical skill that needed correcting and then I needed to work on his mental skill set.

An awesome session unfolded slowly but surely as he went from strength to strength. Drops, tabletops, berms, gaps to 16ft and also linking all the sections together on various trails. Luke blossomed into the rider he felt was there somewhere but couldn’t find .

Brilliant riding with a great bloke.

High5!

Ally’s limits move on

Ally contacted myself for mountain bike skills coaching after recommendation from his friends whom I have already coached. He explained that he wanted to gain more flow and also find out why his confidence was low after crashing and breaking himself last year. I discovered that reason easily as the physical skills showed the errors and once I had corrected this, his mental skills bloomed.

by the end of the session he was riding with ease through linked turns, jumps, gap jumps to 9ft and also drops to 5/6ft too! It was only cramp in his legs that ended what was an awesome session. Check out the videos and pics below.

High5!

 

Andy’s valentines session

I had short notice availability on the 14th feb and Andy wanted a date 🙂

Andy’s main sport is snowboarding and has only ridden a mountain bike the past year or so. He wanted to gain confidence to jump and get more fluid cornering too. The physical skills set made all the difference as his new way of riding made sense to him immediately. Drops, jumps, steeps, corners and gap jumps to 9ft were all ridden and linked togther with simplicity and ease.

Brilliant session, high5!

Anthony’s one to one session

I previously coached Anthony  many years ago at Woburn and after children came along and moving house he’d stopped riding mountain bikes but has got back into it recently. He wanted to come back for a session to correct any errors before they grew into fears.

Drops and jumps as well as steeps and cornering were all ridden and a huge improvement was made in all areas. Great riding dude, high5!

 

Brett’s school holiday session

Brett is a teacher and took up last minute session to get some mountain bike skills coaching and finally find out what to do and why when riding. He wanted to maybe learn to get air under his wheels as he’d never cleared a jump before. The skills check showed the ears that needed work and I focused hard on positioning and applying the mental skills too. By the end of the session Brett was riding smoother and so much faster than when he arrived. Drops, tabletops, steeps, corners and gaps were all ridden and a happy but tired Brett left with a completely new skills set.

High5!
