Chris’s Session

Chris came to me to work on his fear of jumping and the skills check showed me where the seat of this fear laid. I broke down his jump technique and separated what he was trying to do into a simpler action. It was his cornering however that really took off as he used his skiing experience to really start to carve his turns.

Ian’s Mountain Bike Skills Session

Ian has never ever got his wheels off the ground and it was his physical skills that needed correcting before I could show him why it’s a simple physical act to do so.

Footwork in berms was an issue as was positioning on steep terrain and drop offs.

Andrea Finds His Flow

Andrea wanted to gain control of his trail riding and learn how to flow through trails more. I discovered he was weaker in his right hand turns and also that he gave away positioning when descending too.

I focused on footwork and body positioning and we applied the corrected skills to the techniques required. Steeps, drops, riding over obstacles, flat, bermed and off camber corners and pumping were all worked on . A brilliant session unfolded as Andrea embedded his new riding skills.

Padraig And Ollie’s Session

I coached these two separately on public sessions a year or more ago. They wanted to return to develop their riding and regain lost confidence.

I broke down their skills sets and rebuilt them. Better cornering and judging effort and distance when jumping were on the menu. Steep drops, gaps, tabletops and riding obstacles all seemed simpler than previously.

Whistler Preparation

I coached Chris a few years ago and he returned with his riding buddy Jim before he is off to Canada for a riding holiday. They both wanted to push their riding further but also identify and errors in their skills sets.

I discovered that Chris needed work on right hand turns and that Jim needed his footwork and positioning sorted before we could move to jumping tabletops and drops. I worked hard on their berm riding and they grew faster as control enhanced. The whole session grew and grew with wall rides, gaps to 16ft, linking drops and multiple gap jumps and turns as well a wood to wood gaps.

Amazing riding guys!

Bethan and Emma’s Session

I last coached Emma over 4yrs ago and two children later she wanted to return to lay the foundation for her return to riding with her buddy Bethan.

I broke down the physical skills and the application in the techniques I teach. A few set up changes and we were way.

I worked on cornering in berms and singletrack, steep drop offs, pumping and drops, i was able to introduce jumping too.

It was so good to see them progress in their own time but making choices using the framework I give them.
