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!

 

Tim’s one to one

Tim contacted myself after verbal recommendations from lots of other riders. He wanted to get more flow through corners and also jump and anything else we could work on. Well, The skills check showed the areas that needed work physically beofre I could work on the mental skills. By the end of the session, we’d covered pumping, drops, jumping tabletops and gaps to 9ft, manuals through doubles, steeps , drop offs and wall rides. Phew, what a session.

High5 Tim!!

 

Jon returns for another session

Jon last attended a mountain bike coaching session with myself nearly three years ago and felt errors had crept into his riding. He was correct and I set about re installing the physical skills before working on the head game and boy oh boy did the session develop.

I’ll let the pictures tell the story I think

High5!

Working on Steve’s distance of jumping

I have coached Steve before and he returned after a 2yr break for more coaching as he was feeling slower in turns and something was up with his jumping. I broke his skillset down before rebuilding it and applying it to berm riding and jumping in multiples and also judging speed for gaps to 13ft.

Awesome progress on a soggy day, high5!

 

Mike brings his gang

I coached Mike in a public session four years ago and he wanted to return with his riding mates on a private session. We covered so much ground from steeps,pumping and drop offs to gaps, tabletops and berms. I had so much fun with them , as the riding flowed as much as the banter. Here’s are the pics from the session and it was a brilliant end to a fantastic week of coaching

HIgh5!

Five friends share a private session

Andy, Jules, Gill, Marcus and Scott arrived as arranged and The skills check showed me the areas that needed work. I worked hard on body positioning and footwork before adding looking so they had enhanced control in the techniques we teach.

Overcoming obstacles on the trail like logs etc was first and they were surprised at the simplicity of it. from there we worked on cornering, riding rocks, berms, drops and jumps. Andy and Scott even rode the 6ft gap jump too.

even though they were in different places mentally and physically in the riding, I was able to progress each of them by simplle adjustments to their skills.

A brilliant session with a great bunch.

Ps, sorry I lost some of the pics somehow 🙁

High5!
