The fourth phase of Nick’s mountain bike skills coaching

I first coached Nick back in March on a public session when he’d not previously got any airtime before. I developed his riding in that session and he booked 3 more private sessions to really embed the skills and keep check on any lapse.

Today was about reaffirming the mental and physical skills and gradually moving on. He wanted to get more comfortable judging effort and speed for distance and that was done, even linking gaps to 18ft. Woodwork drops and gaps, corners and slight physical tweeks to enable him to easily flow through the trails.

Brilliant session, celebrated by beers Nick brought with him for the end of the session.
