Focus on gap jumps

Simon came to myself wanting to understand his fear of gaps and to push his riding on further. The session built up gradually as I unpicked his riding and pieced it together, so he had the skill set to decide when and what to ride. By the end of the session he was not only riding various gaps to 16ft, but linking them together too!

 

Xc race skills session for Andrew

Andrew is fit as a butchers dog but felt he was lacking some what in his technical handling. He had never got air and always took the b lines in races where air was mandatory. Things were about to change. By the end of the session Andrew was riding over large obstacles, jumping, pumping, dropping and cornering fast and fluid.

Dave and Jo’s session

Dave and Jo came to myself via recommendation and wanted to iron out any errors I found in their riding and maybe even get airtime. I found errors in footwork and positioning in corners and a positional error overall. I adjusted their set ups and showed them why before instilling the skill set I teach.

The change was immediate, as they both grasped the simplicity and familiar things I showed them. By the end they were riding steep drop offs, cornering smoother and knew when it was right or wrong and why! Drops to 3ft as well. Great session with an awesome couple.

Holiday preparation for Rob’s Spanish trip

Rob is going to Spain in a few weeks and wanted to gain control of his skill set and understand what he does and needs to do when riding.

I worked on his footwork, positioning and looking and we applied a simple skill set to various sections out on the trail and applicable techniques. Rob had never got any airtime of note but was riding  drops,  tabletops and  gap jumps, riding over obstacles and cornering smoother and so much faster than before he arrived. After cancelling last weeks sessions due to snow it was awesome to come back to a session like this!!
