Xc singletrack skills with Jonathan

Jonathan races xc and always lost time in corners and when riding down singletrack and over obstacles. I based the session upon correcting his physical skills, especially body positioning before working on “stuff”

The session gradually gained pace as Jonathan grew more aware of anything he was doing physically on the bike right or wrong.

What a session it was.



Xc skills for Bryan

Bryan wanted to unlock the rider inside and discover what was possible for him in his riding.

Well, the pictures tell the tale. A great session unfolded.

Stewart starts on the right foot

Stewart is a road bike rider but recently got into mountain biking and wanted to get some coaching. He found ourselves via google and today was his day.

The skills check showed that I needed to work on looking and positioning in all areas, so I set to work.

By the end of the session Stu was riding drops to 3ft linking turns and multiple sections of singletrack trail together far smother than ever previous to today. Also, he was riding near vertical drop offs and showing good use of his mental skills.

Brilliant session dude, high5!

Singletrack skills public coaching session

Below are the pictures of the session focusing on cornering and fluidity down trails.  The riders had attended a jumps and drops course previously and felt this one was way more valuable in terms of application on their own trails.

Brilliant session, high5!

Lee returns

Lee came to me for coaching last year and a long break from riding due to work saw him wanting to re affirm his skills et and then maybe develop it further. Body positioning and the mental skills were worked on and then we applied them to the techniques we at ukbikeskills teach to various sections on trails. Jumps, drops, cornering, steeps and gap jumps were all ridden and the pics speak for themselves.

High5 Lee!

Martin, David and Ian get up skilled


The lads arrived from Peterborough on time and wanted to work on their singletrack skills and maybe get some air if possible. Well, the pictures and videos speak for themselves as they were cornering smoother and faster than ever by the time we ended and also riding steep stuff and flowing through singletrack. and oh did I mention jumping too?
