Mark’s one to one mountain bike skills session

Mark wanted to become more fluid in his riding and get his wheels into the air if at all possible. I first discovered what physical skills were missing and then applied the corrected skills to techniques. It wasn’t long before he was flying and also riding through corners smoother and faster than before.

Mike and the gang return

All four of the guys have been coached at ukbikeskills previously and wanted to return to develop their riding further and iron out any issues I can see. They wanted to work on jumps and drops and boy did we have a great session.

Drops, tabletops, gaps, drop offs and various ways of riding steep drop offs. Mix in some polishing of their cornering as well as wallrides and you’ll see what I mean.

Great riding guys, High5!

Nic and Mike have their eyes opened and skills buffed

What a great session it was today to end another awesome week of mountain bike coaching at ukbikeskills. Mike and Nic had seen and read lots of advice on jumping etc but it never made sense to them regardless of hours and hours of trying. Well, ten minutes into their session everything changed and they were blown away by the things they could ride by the sessions end.

 

 

Chris gains control

Chris came to myself to gain confidence in his riding and I explained that I first had to make good his physical skill set to give him control of the environment . A setup change helped this and we worked on applying the mental and physical skill sets to the techniques i teach.

Drops, Tabletops, gap jump, drop offs and cornering were all worked on and Chris grew faster through control of speed. It was awesome to see his riding develop so quickly.

Great riding dude, High5!

Si finds the missing link

Si wanted to develop his jumping from hit and miss to a constant method. I had to adjust his set up and correct his physical skill set before this could happen. We then applied the techniques I teach to various sections on the trail. Pumping, manuals, jumps, drops, corners, gaps and even beginning to style it on a bike too. What a session dude!

Mark and Simon’s second session

Well today was supposed to be 5 of them but it turned into a two to one overnight. I have coached Mark and Si two years ago and I wanted to develop their riding further but also solidify what we did last time.

I needed to work on their weaker right hand turns and also their looking when getting air. The session gradually unfolded and By the end of the session we’d covered linking berms and large tabletops to 14ft, gaps to 13ft, wallrides, drops among other stuff. What an awesome end of another week of coaching

High5!

Correcting Dom and Mark’s skill sets

Dom and Mark googled mountain bike coaching and found my website and decided to book a private session. When they arrived, they said they wanted to learn to jump and judge speed through turns and when riding into jumps. Well, the session unfolded gradually but by the end of the session they were riding drops, berms, wallrides, tabletops and 6,7,9 and 13ft gap jumps too!

Amazing riding guys and a brilliant way to end my weeks coaching.

High5!
