Rupert’s session

Rupert has done many sports in his lifetime and wanted to get some mountain bike skills coaching from myself to get to grips with how and why to jump in particular. I needed to work on his footwork to correct his one sided cornering and his body positioning when getting his wheels off the ground. I then pieced it all back together in a fun and enjoyable session.

drops, jumps, drop offs, corners, pumping, linking jumps and gaps were all covered. I worked on judging speed and distance too.

Great riding dude. High5!



Trail centre skills for four

Stuart, Steve, Scott and Stu ride together and wanted to get comfortable in riding trail centres. I ran them through my skills check and explained the areas that needed work. This, along with some set up changes enhanced their riding massively.

Drops, jumps, steeps, pumping, gap jumps and cornering were all covered and the guys were loving it.

We even celebrated the session over a beer in the local pub to.

Great guys, great session.


A one to one gift voucher

Rob was given a gift voucher from his wife for his birthday and today was the day for our session together. He explained that he wanted to gain flow in his riding and work out why he almost comes to a halt in berms. Armed with this information I began working on his missing skills and that had a huge affect on his mental skills.

Drops, jumps, gaps, berms, pumping, woodwork riding and drops and linking gaps on a trail were all covered and ridden with control. An amazing session Rob.


Dan discovers the rider inside

Dan wanted to learn to get smoother with his riding and perhaps learn to jump. he’d never jumped a gap before today and his technique was very much hit and miss. The skills check showed us why and I set to work correcting it.

Before long Dan was riding steeps, drops, tabletops, pumping, jumping gaps and linking sections of the trail together. An amazing session unfolded and he was amazed at how simple it all felt, once I showed him that his skiing experience was so valuable.


Chris’s one to one

Chris wanted to learn techniques applicable to trail centre riding. I ran him through my skills check and that showed me the skills I needed to correct before breaking everything down and rebuilding his riding.

Footwork and positioning were first and then later I added looking into the mix and gradually it all began to click.

Drops, jumps, pumping , steeps, and cornering were all massively improved.
