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!

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.

 

Paul and Jim’s two to one session

Jim and Paul arrived as arranged and I ran them through the skills check. I discovered footwork, body position needed work as well as looking before I could work on the mental skills. Once corrected,  I was able to bring them along to applying the skills to the techniques I teach and it all became simpler and easier. What a cool session guys. High5!

James’s one to one

James has ridden for years and wanted to find out why he struggled to jump and drop on trails and to perhaps get faster cornering.

 

 

Brothers on bikes

Sean and Lloyd shared a private session for their respective birthdays and they wanted to get more fluid in their riding and maybe some air too. The skill set I teach really hit home and it came down to applying the mental skills that I teach to decide when to ride a feature on a trail. Drops, jumps, gaps, steeps, pumping, drop offs and cornering were all covered and two tired brothers were smiling ear to ear at the end of their session.

High5!

Lowey, Dom and Dave’s session

The guys arrived as arranged from various parts of the uk and I began by correcting their set up and their physical errors in the skills sets. Lowey said he was a air in the tyres not air under the tyres kind of rider but that was soon to change with  them all. Drops, steeps, berms, pumping , jumping and gap jumps too were all ridden and they knew why it worked .

Amazing progress in the heat of a very hot day.

High5!
