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.

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.

 

 

Starting off on the right foot

James has started mountain biking quite recently and after a trip to a trail centre he thought it best to get some skills coaching and I came to him via recommendation.

I broke his skills set down and saw that footwork and positioning were paramount in needing correcting and I set to work.

Dom and Steve fly

I have coached Dom twice before today and he returned along with first timer Steve to iron out any errors that have crept in and to move his riding on further and Steve wanted to understand why it goes wrong or right in his riding. I built the days mountain bike skills coachimng session around their physical skill set and later was able to work on the head game too.

A Father and Son session

Jon and His son Tom came to me via recommendation for a mountain bike skills coaching session and wanted to know what to do and why in their riding. Jon’s son Tom was already jumping at the bull track but his dad wanted him to understand what he was doing. Jon himself had never cleared a jump and certainly not a gap jump, but that was about to change.
