Six from Gatwick pt 2

I coached these guys back in February and they returned to move their riding further but also to cement the skills I taught them on their first session.

Today was all about the mental skills that I teach as we moved through berms, drops, tabletops, wallrides and gap jumps.

What a session it was.

 

 

Darell Ebike skills

I had to break Darrell’s riding down and build it back up by stopping the things he thought he should do and leave with the simple skills that they buried. Footwork, positioning and looking were all worked on to gain more control of trails as he wants to progress from canal paths and bridleways to trail centre riding.

Pumping, cornering and getting his front wheel into the air were all easy by the end.

get some mountain bike skills coaching

Jonny and the crew’s session

I have coached Jonny before and he returned with his riding buddy’s Dom, Jason and Sean. I Showed them the physical skills that were missing and then we applied them to the techniques required in mountain biking. Footwork and positioning were paramount, followed by looking and actioning in the correct place. The session then took off.

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.

Nick and Paul’s two to one

 

Nick fist came to me in March this year on a public session and today was his 3rd session. He wanted to build on his previous two sessions and share it with his old school mate Paul. They are both going to The white room in the tarrantese area of the alps for their summer mtb trip and wanted to both get some skills to help them enjoy it more. On Nick’s last session, a combo of tiredness and old knackered bike meant the 16ft gap was a no go but by the end of the session today he was sailing it. Paul was using his mental skills to decide what to ride and when too as he was riding gaps to 7ft also.
