Lowey, Dom and Dave’s session

The guys arrived as arranged from various parts of the uk and I began by correcting their set up and their physical errors in the skills sets. Lowey said he was a air in the tyres not air under the tyres kind of rider but that was soon to change with  them all. Drops, steeps, berms, pumping , jumping and gap jumps too were all ridden and they knew why it worked .

Amazing progress in the heat of a very hot day.

Brighton mtb club pt1

Today was the first of two session for Brighton mtb. Paul, Tim, Mick and PAul arrived as arranged and once we’d sorted a bike issue we began. Drops were first on the menu, followed by jumping a 7ft tabletop and gap jump. We then worked on cornering, pumping and linking jumps together.

We linked berms to gap jumps as well as riding wall rides.

A brilliant session in the boiling heat of the day.

Matt, Paul and James’s skills session

I have coached Matt a couple of years ago and he wanted to return with his mates to have another session and push his riding on a bit too.

I had to work on the small physical changes that make such a big difference in control beofre working on the head game also.

A brilliant session it turned into.

Awesome riding guys.

Mark’s one to one

Mark had a bad stack last year and wanted to find a way to overcome his fears. I started with finding what he was doing wrong physically and then broke his technique down completely before building it back up. He got his wheels into the air, rode steep drop offs, rode over large obstacles and cornered with far more control than before and in his own words it was a “game changer! ”

awesome progression dude, high5!

Getting ready for the Alps

I coached Mike last year before his holiday and today him and 6 of his riding buddies came to develop their riding further. I worked on correcting the small things in their riding that have a huge effect overall. Drops, jumps, gaps, stepps, pumping cornering and linking larger jumps were all covered during the awesome session. A cracking way to end a fantastic weeks coaching

High5!

Father and son learn to fly

Peter and his son Alex wanted to learn to corner better and get more flow but also to handle drops, maybe jumps and steep drops. I made some set up corrections and worked on getting them to apply a physical skill set to sections found out on the trails, using the mental skills to decide what and if to ride something.

Below are the videos and pictures from the session. Great riding guys and I look forward to your ride updates
