Whistler preparation for Ken

Ken wanted to overcome his fear of gap jumps and today’s mountain bike skills coaching session  was about ironing out the small physical errors in his skills and then using the mental skills.

I think the pics and videos speak for themselves.

 

Trev and Chris return

I have coached these boys twice before and they wanted to iron out some errors they could feel in their skills set but had no idea how to correct them. This session was all about the mental game after I had corrected their physical errors. Another fantastic friday unfolded as did Chris’s carbon handle bar , that snapped under his gear shifter when landing a 10ft gap jump. thank god he wasn’t hurt.

Boom! Trevor and Chris really improved today.

Four go mad in Hertfordshire

I have coached Ben before and he returned for more mountain bike skills coaching, this time with three riding buddy’s Darren, Lee and James. They were all in different places in their riding experience and levels. The skills check made them realise the errors in their skill sets and I set about piecing it all together.

We began with riding over obstacles and the techniques I demonstrated really made sense to them and soon they all rode over the largest easily.

Drops and jumps were next, followed by cornering and pumping. The session grew and grew and by the end of the session they’d been jumping tabletops, linking jumps and rode gaps of 6ft to 16ft and all in between Phew , what a session.

 

Mark’s one to one mountain bike skills coaching session

Mark came to me via recommendation from http://www.southcoastsuspension.co.uk and he wanted to learn to jump and turn like he can on skis.

Mark had jumped tabletops before but lacked consistency and confidence for gap jumps, that was about to change.
