Mari and Duncan get their wings

I coached Mari last year on a public session and she took advantage of a short notice availability date for a private mountain biking skills coaching session. I ran them through the skills check and showed them the missing physical skills and then rebuilt their riding up to cornering faster and smoother, riding over obstacles, wall rides and jumping tabletops and gaps. We even worked on linking drops to 5ft to gaps to 16ft. What an end to a brilliant week of coaching .

High5!

Charles, Borak and Rich get some skills coaching

What an end to a week of coaching. These guys got to grips with their new skill sets quickly and then it just left applying them to various sections and trails. brilliant riding guys.

 

 

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!

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.
