Where There’s A Will

I coached Will today (see what I did there?) and he wanted to understand what he was doing and why when hitting jumps and drops. I isolated his skills set and showed him what needed working on.

I also worked on the head game too as we moved through lots of applications for the techniques I teach.

Chris’s Winter Skills Session

What a session today was. Chris was worried about the weather but the all weather trails meant we were good to go. I was able to use his snowboarding experience to really develop his mtb skills set. I worked hard with him as he’d never cleared a tabletop jump on a mtb but a snowboard jump would be no issue. I showed him why this was and he clicked straight away. jumps, turns, pumping and gap jumping all seemed easy to him suddenly.

Rich And Joe’s Session

I coached Rich in July on a public session but he wanted to return and bring his lifelong mate Joe along for a session too, so they could push their riding further. I broke their skills down and rebuilt it into a simpler and easier version of mountain biking. It really resonated with them as corners, jumps, drops, steeps and gaps all suddenly became a breeze for them.

Saturday Skills Session

I coach on Saturday’s during winter and today was the first. Dale made the trip down from Preston for his one to one wanting to learn to jump. I broke his skill set down and rebuilt it back, along with his mental skills too. Dale had never cleared a tabletop before today, but by the end of the session, Dale was clearing 9ft gaps!

Chris’s Session

Chris wanted to come to me to learn to jump after hearing recommendations online. Today was so much more than just jumping as I worked on correcting his physical skills set and then his mental approach. Great riding Chris!

Jon And Tim’s Session

Jon and Tim have been coached elsewhere previously and came to me via recommendation from riding buddies. They wanted to iron out any errors I could find in their riding. Positioning of body and feet were in need of correcting and that led on into the techniques required to ride obstacles, jump , drop and turn.

Ian And Oli Return

I coached Oli and Ian back in July and they wanted to return to go over it all again and maybe push on a bit too. I worked on their mental game and gradually pushed them. It was awesome to see oli overcome his fears on the steep drop in!!

From Cardiff

Paul and His sons Zach and Dillon came across for a session with me after recommendations from his friends. He was worried about the how different in ability they were to each other but that was absolutely not an issue once I began. Footwork, positioning, looking and speed were all worked on and applied to the techniques I teach and BOOM!

They wanted to learn to jump but today was about so much more. I think i’ll let the pics and vids tell the story
