Robin finds the answers

Robin had been seeking more control in his riding and his path led to myself and a voucher for mountain bike coaching as a birthday present from his partner sealed it. I broke his riding down to it’s smallest parts and then re built him, Steve austin stylee.

What a session it was. Robin wanted to gain more confidence at speed and also to jump more consistently.

BOOM!

 

 

Fuck yeah Friday

Mel, Adam and Neil came to me for mountain bike skills coaching via recommendation and wanted to gain control in the air and other areas. I put them through my skills check that showed the missing skills and with set up changed and physical skills intact I demonstrated why the techniques were needed in various sections.

Drops, gaps, tabletops, berms , steeps and alpine style switchbacks were ridden with ease and control.

Four go mad from Weston Super Mare

Rich came to me last year for mountain bike skills coaching and wanted to bring his riding on further and also see his three mates Mick, Paul and Steve progress too.

Well, what a session it turned out to be as I prepared them for their up coming alpine holiday. Drops to 5ft, tabletops to 14ft, riding over obstacles, wall rides, berms and gaps to 16ft too!

Phew, what a session.

 

 

Nick and Andy’s pre alpine holiday prep

What can I say about this session! I had coached Nick two years ago on a public session but he wanted to get more from a private session and his mate Andy came along too. They are going to the Alps in the summer and today was about correcting errors and moving them on mentally.

 

Holiday preparation for Rob’s Spanish trip

Rob is going to Spain in a few weeks and wanted to gain control of his skill set and understand what he does and needs to do when riding.

I worked on his footwork, positioning and looking and we applied a simple skill set to various sections out on the trail and applicable techniques. Rob had never got any airtime of note but was riding  drops,  tabletops and  gap jumps, riding over obstacles and cornering smoother and so much faster than before he arrived. After cancelling last weeks sessions due to snow it was awesome to come back to a session like this!!

 

Dan’s session

Dan was coached by myself a couple of years ago and inactivity saw him wanting to return to go over everything again and maybe move his riding on again. A small error with his feet on right turns and a disjointed jump technique needed correcting and then we applied the skills sets to drops, jumping tabletops and gaps, switchbacks and wallrides. An awesome session unfolded in the winter sunshine and a very happy but tired Dan ended the session with a smile.

High5!

 

Alpine preperation

Ashley, Royston, V, Jason and Adam came to me to prepare for their up coming holiday. I had coached Ash and Royston previously so had to move them on as well as bring the other guys along too. Body positioning was critical followed by looking and footwork. That left the mental skills while we applied the techniques I teach to sections out on trails and the woodwork. Berms were railed, natural drops as well as ladder drops, tabletops and gaps to 14ft were all linked too. An amazing session guys.

High5!
