Duncan gains control

Duncan is a beginner when it comes to mountain biking as a change in lifestyle was needed in his life he felt and wanted to gain some idea of what and why to do anything whilst mountain biking. He found myself via recommendation from a facebook group and today was the day. He explained he’d never been able to get his front wheel into the air and found nothing online worked. I ran him through my skills check and adjusted his set up too. I had to work gradually on each physical skill and pieced his riding together slowly but very surely.

his face when he flew into the air and landed perfectly was a picture. I worked hard on his mental skills and through the session he applied these to decide what to ride. Drops, pumping and absorbing the trail to gain speed, drop offs and steep terrain were all ridden and boy oh boy could he now corner better than the stuttering turns he used to do.

Brilliant progress from a gentleman.

High5!
