Jonny and Tom’s session

I coached Tom 3yrs ago and he returned today with his mate Jonny to iron out any errors he’d picked up and push their riding further. I corrected the missing skills and then we applied the mental skills to various sections and trails. what a session.

Paul’s one to one

Paul has been riding ten years and had got stuck in a rut with his riding and came to me for some mountain bike skills coaching. He never could jump or get his bike into the air over anything, that was about to change.

I adjusted his set up and showed him his missing skills before repairing his skill set for him and showing him why to do certain things . Body positioning and footwork were worked on predominantly and soon it all came together. Steeps, jumps, pumping, drop offs, cornering and drops were all worked on as well as riding over obstacles.

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!

Four go mad in Hertfordshire

I have coached Ben before and he returned for more mountain bike skills coaching, this time with three riding buddy’s Darren, Lee and James. They were all in different places in their riding experience and levels. The skills check made them realise the errors in their skill sets and I set about piecing it all together.

We began with riding over obstacles and the techniques I demonstrated really made sense to them and soon they all rode over the largest easily.

Drops and jumps were next, followed by cornering and pumping. The session grew and grew and by the end of the session they’d been jumping tabletops, linking jumps and rode gaps of 6ft to 16ft and all in between Phew , what a session.

 

Robin finds the answers

Robin had been seeking more control in his riding and his path led to myself and a voucher for mountain bike coaching as a birthday present from his partner sealed it. I broke his riding down to it’s smallest parts and then re built him, Steve austin stylee.

What a session it was. Robin wanted to gain more confidence at speed and also to jump more consistently.

BOOM!

 

 

John and Fred fly

I have coached Fred before and he wanted to return to iron out any bad habits that maybe had crept in and push his riding on further and share the mountain bike skills coaching session with his riding buddy John who had been riding for years and wanted to get more comfortable riding gaps in particular.

I began with my skills check and changed their set up slightly to enhance the positional changes I made in them. The session grew and grew in technical difficulty and the boys used their mental skills . By the end of the session they were riding smoother, faster and jumping further than ever too.

Drops to 5ft, tabletops to 14ft and gaps to 16ft! mad session guys.

High5!
