Polishing Richard’s skills

I coached Richard two years ago and he wanted to find out why he corners to the left more comfortably than right and also why he struggles to jump distance. I made small adjustment to his positioning and foot pressure and built it all up from there. I think the pictures show the session better than words 🙂

 

Starting off on the right foot

James has started mountain biking quite recently and after a trip to a trail centre he thought it best to get some skills coaching and I came to him via recommendation.

I broke his skills set down and saw that footwork and positioning were paramount in needing correcting and I set to work.

Steve’s one to one skills coaching session

Steve made the trip up from Dorset for his first mountain bike coaching session and wanted to learn to jump and find out why he crashes lots in berms. Footwork and positioning were worked on and then I was able to work on the simple addition of these skills in many more areas.

A great first session after my weeks holiday

Jim and Matt from Shrewsbury

Jim and Matt made the trip down to me for their mountain bike skills coaching session and the skills check showed the areas that needed correcting.

I identified footwork and positioning errors as well as set up.

The from Fleet mtb club

I have coached a few of the Fleet mountain bike club and today was Matt,Paul and Liz’s turn to have their perception of what they should do on a bike changed. I used their horse riding, snowboarding and skiing experiences to enhance my mountain bike skills coaching and they really got to grips with it. I worked on footwork, looking, speed and positioning as well as the mental skill set.

 

Dom and Steve fly

I have coached Dom twice before today and he returned along with first timer Steve to iron out any errors that have crept in and to move his riding on further and Steve wanted to understand why it goes wrong or right in his riding. I built the days mountain bike skills coachimng session around their physical skill set and later was able to work on the head game too.
