Charles, Borak and Rich get some skills coaching

What an end to a week of coaching. These guys got to grips with their new skill sets quickly and then it just left applying them to various sections and trails. brilliant riding guys.

 

 

Lee finds his skills set

Lee came to me via recommendations online and wanted to find out why he lands front heavy and out of control on jumps. His face was a picture when I said there’s no manual involved but in a few minutes he completely changed .

What a session it turned out to be. Boiling heat and perfect ground conditions meant we covred lots of ground quickly. Jumps, drops, steeps, corners and gaps were all on the menu and ridden with control.

Great riding dude. HIgh5!

 

 

 

Jo and Nia wanted to fly

Jo and Nia came to me for another mountain bike skills coaching session and this time they wanted to get airtime.

During the session I adjusted their set ups and corrected a small error in their cornering too. By the end of the session they had ridden over large obstacles, drops, berms, tabletops and a gap jump. We also worked on riding multiple jumps too. Brilliant improvement and a great session.

High5!

Nik’s 7 year itch

I coached Nik back in 2011 and he returned after life and a couple of bad crashes had set him back mentally on his bike. I discovered that body positioning was in need of work and that set the tone for the mountain bike skills coaching session.

Bit by bit I pieced his skills set together through corners, drops, steeps, jumps, drop offs and gap jumps.

Great session dude, high5!

 

 

Pete, Jeff and Al feel the force

Peter, Al and Jeff came to me via recommendation and I began by showing them why the felt a lack of control when riding off road. I adjusted their set ups and corrected their positioning first then added looking and footwork into the mix. The boys got more and more confident as their control felt so more enhanced now.

Matt and Gary get to grips with their riding

Matt owns a bike shop in Essex called grips bikes and he came along today with his mate Gary for a session to learn why their jumping is hit and miss and anything else I could help them with. Footwork, looking and positioning were all worked on and then the corrected skill set applied to the techniques I teach. We covred riding over obstacles, cornering, jumping tabletops and linking jumps, pumping and absorbing jumps, drops and gap jumps. Phew, what a session.

High5!
