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!

Ben’s one to one skills session

See Ben wanted to learn to jump and as an experienced snowboarder,  I was able to use muscle memory from that to develop his skills set to jumping tabletops and gaps. His cornering was however the biggest change

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.

 

 

Andy’s one to one skills session

 

Andy has been riding for years and I was able to use his experience from other sports to bring his physical skills back inline. Body positioning was key to his jumping and he quickly knew why it was right or wrong in any section. drops, jumps, wallrides and cornering were all covered in a cracking little session.

Marcia’s one to one

Marcia wanted to develop her skills set and came to myself for mountain bike coaching to work on jumping etc. What a session it turned out to be as once I had corrected her physical skills the mental skills blossomed and the session went from strength to strength. Amazing progression Marcia

Richard and Dan’s two to one

Richard and Dan wanted to get to grips with drops and jumps as they felt it was a hit and hope rather than a technique they were using. The skills check showed them why this was the case and after a set up change or two I was able to correct their missing skills and work on the head game of airtime amongst other things too. Drops, berms, jumps, gap jump, steeps, pumping and drop offs were all demonstrated by myself and then the guys followed suit. A brilliant session unfolded and two tired but happy riders were grinning by the end.

High5!
