Jump and Cornering Coaching

 Greg was bought a voucher for my mountain bike skills coaching and wanted to have a private two to one session with his mate Simon. They made the trip up from Bristol and a cold but dry day greeted us. They w anted to learn to jump and to understand why they lost control of the front when cornering too.

 The skills check revealed the areas that needed work and we applied the corrected skills sets to drops, jumps, steeps, pumping, berms and a gap jump too.

Nic and Doug’s private skills session

I coached Nic on a public jumps and drops session 3 yrs ago and he wanted to return to push his riding on but also to share the session with his riding buddy Doug, who was struggling with getting his wheels off the ground consistently. I worked on the physical skills and that changed everything. Nic wanted to work on gaps and style in the air and Doug wanted to be more fluid and understand how to get consistently into the air.

Kelvin’s Session

Kelvin contacted me a couple of weeks ago looking for a mountain bike skills coaching winter session . He wanted to understand what to do and why when he rides. The skills check and set up changes made sense to him as I identified footwork and positioning needed some work and I made various small adjustments that made a colossal difference.

Jumping tabletops, gap jumps, drops, drop offs , corners and pumping were all worked on, demonstrated by me before Kelvin repeated.

Brilliant session and fantastic progression

Steve’s One to One session

Steve rides road bikes mostly but began riding mtb last year and wanted to come to see me for mountain bike skills coaching after recommendations from fellow riders. I was able to use he experiences from other sports to get the most out of his session. He wanted to know why he struggled in berms and drops and why steep sections always felt sketchy. I worked on his positioning in all areas and his footwork in turn and the change was immediate.
