Correcting Dom and Mark’s skill sets

Dom and Mark googled mountain bike coaching and found my website and decided to book a private session. When they arrived, they said they wanted to learn to jump and judge speed through turns and when riding into jumps. Well, the session unfolded gradually but by the end of the session they were riding drops, berms, wallrides, tabletops and 6,7,9 and 13ft gap jumps too!

Amazing riding guys and a brilliant way to end my weeks coaching.

Mark and Alex’s two to one skills session

Mark and Alex wanted to work on jumping predominantly and anything else I could do during our time together. I corrected their set ups and worked on footwork, looking and body position, before applying them to the techniques I teach. The effect on the mental skills was awesome as they were suddenly riding more confidently and smoothly as a result. Drops, tabletops, gaps, wallride, berms, manuals and linking jumps. Marks face when he sailed over the 9ft gap jump at the end was a picture.

Great riding guys, High5!

Chris and Nik’s session

Chris injured himself the day before our session but arrived wanting to see if he can ride and Nik brought a bike with ruined pivots, so not the best start. However, I first discovered why Chris had crashed as I asked was it a left hand berm and I was correct. I could see he had a body position error and that they both needed the mental side of their riding worked on. Drops, tabletops, gaps, and wallride were all covered and ridden by the end of the session. Work on the hips Chris and work on the endo Nik.

High5!

Begining their off road riding

Chris and Scott wanted to learn the correct ways to ride with control when riding off road and the session was based on pumping, controlling undulating terrain and cornering. Footwork, looking and body position were all applied and the lads gained more control when it was correct and could self diagnose when wrong. A cracking session guys.

 

Jon’s one to one

I have coached Jon on a public session a few years ago and he wanted to develop his skills set further. I worked on his weaker right hand turns as well as his mental skills. Jon was amazed at the things he could ride by the sessions end.
