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!

 

Dan returns after a 4yr gap

I coached Dan 4/5yrs ago and he wanted to return to move his riding on and to get more relaxed whilst airborne. I discovered a weakness in his right hand turns as well as a body position error in jumping. I then built the session up and we ended up on the woodwork.

Brilliant improvements and it was most of all, fun.

High5!

 

Damien returns

I coached Damien about five years ago and he wanted to return as a crash a couple of years ago had affected his confidence. I discovered an area in his cornering that needed correcting and also in his jump technique too, once I had corrected that then the mental game was worked on too.

Here are a few pics from the session. See you in August Damien. High5!

 

Private mixed group of four

I have coached Matt a couple of years back and he returned with Mark, Jenn and Nic. Matt wanted to gain some lost confidence and the rest wanted to maybe get air under their wheels, Simples!

The session unfolded into applying their new skills sets to drops, jumping tabletops, gaps to 9ft, steeps and drop offs, as well as cornering and pumping. Phew, what a session.

High5!

The return of Gary and George

I coached Gary and George back in 2014 and they wanted to return to build up their skills again and regain some lost confidence through inactivity.

What a session it turned in to. Drops, jumps, gaps, wallrides, berms and linking jumps together. The warmest day of the year it was too and the smiles on all our faces just grew and grew. George cracked his linkage on his yeti frame and continued with my bike. They tried on my new http://www.kaliprotectives.com interceptor helmet too and loved the feel and look. Gary, if you like my @dakine shorts so much contact http://www.contourcycles.com and they will supply  🙂

Great day, high5!

 

Tim and Neil build their skills sets

Tim and Neil wanted to develop their skills further and find out why drops and jumps always felt sketchy and anything else I could help them with. Neither could bunny hop they said despite watching loads of how too videos online but in five minutes they could hop over a stump on the trail. From there, I worked on their mental skills and we worked on gaps, jumps, drops and berm riding.

 

Brilliant session guys, high5!
