Rebuilding Kevin’s riding

Kevin not only rides bikes but also windsurfs and skis. A skiing accident where he snapped his quadriceps really set him back and he wanted to regain his riding skills. I gradually built the session up working on moving his feet, looking and body to enable him to feel more comfortable and secure on his bike. The techniques I teach then suddenly became simple and his confidence and other mental skills grew as a consequence.

 

Matt’s one to one

Matt came to me for mountain bike skills coaching via recommendation online. I broke his skill set down and rebuilt his looking and positioning when applying the skills to the techniques we worked on. Jumps, corners, drops, pumping and drop offs were all ridden with a control and a developed speed he’d previously not felt.

 

From a public session last year to a private session today.

 

I coached Rob last year on a public jumps and drops session and he wanted to return for a private mountain bike skills coaching session to develop his cornering and trail fluidity, as well as bring his jumping on more too.

I was able to use his muscle memory from other sports to really improve his grip control in turns but also in riding drops, tabletops, wall rides, gap jumps and drops offs. Linking them all together was the order of the day before we ended the session with over coming the head game of wall rides.

 

 

The Bayliss brothers

I have coached Mark before and this time his Brother Andy came along for another mountain bike skills coaching  session. I was able to use Andy’s motorbike experience to really cement his new skills set and I was able to push Mark on further too.

Drops, jumps, drop offs, wall rides, berms and linking drops and gaps together were all covered. An amazing session unfolded.The pics will tell the story.

Three brothers find the truth in their riding

 

I coached Pete back in December and he wanted to return with his brothers Joseph and Tom for another session. I was able to use their skiing experience to develop a new understanding of their skill sets. They said it was like being shown how to make fire for the first time.

Rob turns the clock back

Rob has been riding mountain bikes for twenty years and wanted to iron out the errors in his riding and get more comfortable with speed and flow on trails. The skills check showed positioning and looking needed correcting and I set to work. Drops, drop offs, corners, pumping and linking it all together were the order of the day.

It was awesome seeing Robert improve and see the smile on his face.
