From a public session last year to a private session today.

 

I coached Rob last year on a public jumps and drops session and he wanted to return for a private mountain bike skills coaching session to develop his cornering and trail fluidity, as well as bring his jumping on more too.

I was able to use his muscle memory from other sports to really improve his grip control in turns but also in riding drops, tabletops, wall rides, gap jumps and drops offs. Linking them all together was the order of the day before we ended the session with over coming the head game of wall rides.

 

 

The Bayliss brothers

I have coached Mark before and this time his Brother Andy came along for another mountain bike skills coaching  session. I was able to use Andy’s motorbike experience to really cement his new skills set and I was able to push Mark on further too.

Drops, jumps, drop offs, wall rides, berms and linking drops and gaps together were all covered. An amazing session unfolded.The pics will tell the story.

Three brothers find the truth in their riding

 

I coached Pete back in December and he wanted to return with his brothers Joseph and Tom for another session. I was able to use their skiing experience to develop a new understanding of their skill sets. They said it was like being shown how to make fire for the first time.

Rob turns the clock back

Rob has been riding mountain bikes for twenty years and wanted to iron out the errors in his riding and get more comfortable with speed and flow on trails. The skills check showed positioning and looking needed correcting and I set to work. Drops, drop offs, corners, pumping and linking it all together were the order of the day.

It was awesome seeing Robert improve and see the smile on his face.

 

 

More riders from the Isle of White

Darrell, Steve and Rob got the ferry over from the Isle of White for mountain bike skills coaching after hearing about my coaching from riders at bike park wales. I have coached quite a few Sunday social riders from the isle already and today was all about rebuilding their skill sets so they can ride the things they want and some stuff they never dreamed was possible for them 🙂

Cyclo-cross skills for Steve

I have coached Steve on his mountain bike but he really struggled on his cross bike to relate the skills set to it. He said grassy off camber turns were his nemesis, especially right turns. Steve was amazed that I showed him why that was and by working on his hips and feet I changed his cornering on his cross bike dramatically.  Drops, drop offs and linking turns all seemed easier suddenly 🙂

Great session, really enjoyed the change

Three friends have a skills session

Three friends, all called Chris booked a private session to work on controlling the off road environment they are putting themselves in. I made small adjustments to foot placement, positioning, looking and braking areas and then applied their new skills to various sections commonly found on singletrack and trail centres.
