Dan discovers the rider inside

Dan wanted to learn to get smoother with his riding and perhaps learn to jump. he’d never jumped a gap before today and his technique was very much hit and miss. The skills check showed us why and I set to work correcting it.

Before long Dan was riding steeps, drops, tabletops, pumping, jumping gaps and linking sections of the trail together. An amazing session unfolded and he was amazed at how simple it all felt, once I showed him that his skiing experience was so valuable.

High5!

Chris’s one to one

Chris wanted to learn techniques applicable to trail centre riding. I ran him through my skills check and that showed me the skills I needed to correct before breaking everything down and rebuilding his riding.

Footwork and positioning were first and then later I added looking into the mix and gradually it all began to click.

Drops, jumps, pumping , steeps, and cornering were all massively improved.

David polishes his skills

David came to myself via recommendation and wanted to learn to jump and also gain control of his bike. I worked hard on his looking and body position and made an adjustment to his bike. The session built from there and we Covered cornering, jumping tabletops, drops,steeps,  rock gardens,  pumping and riding over large obstacles. By the end of the session David was a completely different rider and knew it.

A wife and husband’s two to one session

Lynda and David attended the session together and their concerns that they are at different levels of experience soon disappeared. I worked on their missing physical skills and then worked hard on their mental skills. I then showed them why the skills sets apply to techniques that I teach and why it all simply works.

Drops, cornering, pumping, drop offs and linking sections together on a trail and finally riding over obstacles . Amazing improvements in such a short time.

64yrs young

Bob took up a short notice availability session I had and when he arrived he said that he wanted to learn to jump. I asked him what other sports he’d done and I used that experience to develop his riding.

Drops were first followed by jumping a tabletop, that done we moved to gap jumping and much to his surprise he sailed over it. Thta was his first ever gap jump and at the young age of 64!

Cornering was where he really found his skiing pay off as I showed him why it worked in mountain biking too.

By the end of the session he was flying down a trail and jumping, pumping and railing turns.

High5!

 

 

Howard gets the answer he seeks

Howard wanted to find out why his riding, jumping in particular was hit and miss. The skills check showed the errors in his physical skills set and I set about correcting those. Positioning was critical as well as his looking but slowly it all pieced back together to an amazing session of mountain bike coaching.

Drops, jumping tabletops, linking jumps, gap jumps, cornering, pumping, bunnyhops, endo turns and linking gap jumps too.

Phew, what a session.

Not a berk on a bike

Paul rides with berks on bikes and wanted to find the answer to his crashes and near misses on his bike and googled mountain bike skills coaching and found myself. He said he’d like to not fear drops and gain confidence in his riding.  Through the session I worked on his positioning and looking. small adjustments were made and huge gains were made. Drops, tabletop jumps, steep drops, riding over obstacles, pumping and linking sections on the trail. Paul was now flying!
