Kevin’s mountain bike skills session

I had coached Kevin previously with his Cambridge cc team mates on their cyclo cross bikes but now Kevin wants to start mountain biking and the flat lands of Cambridgeshire meant that the session would be physical and psychological too.

I really focused on positioning during this session and then challenged the mental side of riding mountain bikes.

Drops, corners, rock gardens, pumping, steep terrain and linking drops into turns too were all covered.
