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.

Sixth Element Wheels

Graham of http://www.sixthelement.co.uk wanted to come to me for coaching and to understand why he has always struggled with getting into the air.

I focused on his foot positioning and body positioning throughout the session and used his muscle memory of skiing to really enhance his riding.

A Saturday With Pete

Pete wanted to understand how and when to jump as previously it had been hit and miss. I broke down his skills set and rebuilt it, working on positioning massively. That led on to his mental skills. We went from riding obstacles, jumping, drops, steeps and corners. Great session dude and i’m looking forward to hearing your riding updates.

Chris’s Session

Chris came to me via recommendation wanting to gain confidence, especially in jumping. I broke his skills down and rebuilt them into a simpler and easier methodology. Drops, steeps, berms, jumps and gaps all were ridden and covered after my demonstrations. Cracking session.

Two Steve’s , One Session

Today’s Session was about using both Steve’s experiences from other sports like tennis and snowboarding to enhance their mountain biking skills. Foot positioning, body and looking were all pieced together bit by bit

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.
