A Father And Son Skills Session

Darren and his son Tom came to me via recommendation. They wanted to polish their riding and move it on with understanding what to do and why on their mountain bikes.

I worked on their physical skills sets as well as the head game and before you knew it, they were riding smooth and faster than before.

Drops, steeps, corners, pumping, riding over obstacles, jumps and gaps were all demonstrated and they followed suit.

Ladies Only

All five ladies arrived on time and this was the first time they had met after Kerry arranged the session on a facebook page mtbchixandtrails. Caroline, Sophia, Katy and An joined her for this private session.

I broke down their skills sets and showed the application in the techniques I teach. Drops, pumping, steep drop offs, jumps, gaps, riding over obstacles and cornering.

It was awesome to see them all improve as I worked on looking and positioning and it wasn’t long before they were all airborne.

Four From Sunderland

Peter, Graham and the two Mikes made their way down to me from Sunderland after reading my recommendations online. I adjusted their set ups after putting them through my skills check I showed them why positioning and foot positioning were needing work.

We began with riding over a small stump and I built the whole session from there. Cornering, jumping, drops, pumping and steep terrain were all covered. It was so good to see them riding faster and smoother with a new confidence in their riding.

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.

Tony’s Session

I have coached Tony regularly over the past 8yrs and today was his latest session where I showed him how the skills sets apply to common things he finds on the trails and how simpler it all is.

What a session it turned into as we moved through riding over obstacles, manualing through things, linking jumps and gaps, steep terrain and corner grip.

Tom And Phil’s xc Skills

Tom and Phil race xc and wanted to get better and more fluid in their riding repetiore.

I put them through my skills check and explained the outline for the session and it all grew from there.

I worked on their positioning, looking and footwork and we then applied the techniques I teach to various sections and trails. Drops, pumping, riding over obstacles, steep drop offs and cornering were all easier and faster as a result
