The Bayliss brothers

I have coached Mark before and this time his Brother Andy came along for another mountain bike skills coaching  session. I was able to use Andy’s motorbike experience to really cement his new skills set and I was able to push Mark on further too.

Drops, jumps, drop offs, wall rides, berms and linking drops and gaps together were all covered. An amazing session unfolded.The pics will tell the story.

Three brothers find the truth in their riding


I coached Pete back in December and he wanted to return with his brothers Joseph and Tom for another session. I was able to use their skiing experience to develop a new understanding of their skill sets. They said it was like being shown how to make fire for the first time.

Rob turns the clock back

Rob has been riding mountain bikes for twenty years and wanted to iron out the errors in his riding and get more comfortable with speed and flow on trails. The skills check showed positioning and looking needed correcting and I set to work. Drops, drop offs, corners, pumping and linking it all together were the order of the day.

It was awesome seeing Robert improve and see the smile on his face.



More riders from the Isle of White

Darrell, Steve and Rob got the ferry over from the Isle of White for mountain bike skills coaching after hearing about my coaching from riders at bike park wales. I have coached quite a few Sunday social riders from the isle already and today was all about rebuilding their skill sets so they can ride the things they want and some stuff they never dreamed was possible for them 🙂

Three friends have a skills session

Three friends, all called Chris booked a private session to work on controlling the off road environment they are putting themselves in. I made small adjustments to foot placement, positioning, looking and braking areas and then applied their new skills to various sections commonly found on singletrack and trail centres.



Polishing Richard’s skills

I coached Richard two years ago and he wanted to find out why he corners to the left more comfortably than right and also why he struggles to jump distance. I made small adjustment to his positioning and foot pressure and built it all up from there. I think the pictures show the session better than words 🙂


Starting off on the right foot

James has started mountain biking quite recently and after a trip to a trail centre he thought it best to get some skills coaching and I came to him via recommendation.

I broke his skills set down and saw that footwork and positioning were paramount in needing correcting and I set to work.
