Ian’s singletrack skills session

Ian wanted to develop his singletrack riding and feel more fluid and comfortable in his riding repertoire.

Footwork, body positioning and looking were all broken down and worked on. I then demonstrated the application of the skills sets in various sections and trails. Ian’s riding went from strength to strength as he gained confidence in his skills sets.

High5!

 

 

 

Mike and the gang return

All four of the guys have been coached at ukbikeskills previously and wanted to return to develop their riding further and iron out any issues I can see. They wanted to work on jumps and drops and boy did we have a great session.

Drops, tabletops, gaps, drop offs and various ways of riding steep drop offs. Mix in some polishing of their cornering as well as wallrides and you’ll see what I mean.

Great riding guys, High5!

John, Charlie and Kev’s session

The lads arrived on time and raring to go. They wanted to work on jumping and drops and their mental skills. I worked on correcting the small errors in their riding first before moving on. Well, it wasn’t long before they were riding tabletops, drops, gap jumping, wallrides, woodwork and drops from ladders too. Mix that with cornering and it was a huge change in them all.

 

 

A family session

Craig and Christina and their 8yr old son Lucas came along for a session wanting to work on drops and jumps. I worked on correcting the physical skills before working on the mental skills sets too.

Through the session I demonstrated the application of the skills sets in various sections and trails and applying them to the techniques needed.

Dropd, tabletops, gaps, berms and pumping were all covered. It was a total pleasure to see them all improve so much.

HIgh5!

 

Nicole and Adrian’s two to one mountain bike skills session

Nicole and Adrian wanted to gain more confidence in their riding and I explained that the answer lay in the physical skills. I adjusted foot position, body positioning and looking and then we applied the corrected skills to the techniques I teach out on the trails

Jumps, drops, corners, drop offs and pumping were all ridden. We also worked on riding multiple sections and choosing to pump or jump.

 

Nic and Mike have their eyes opened and skills buffed

What a great session it was today to end another awesome week of mountain bike coaching at ukbikeskills. Mike and Nic had seen and read lots of advice on jumping etc but it never made sense to them regardless of hours and hours of trying. Well, ten minutes into their session everything changed and they were blown away by the things they could ride by the sessions end.
