Ian, Kristian And Sam

What can I say about today’s mountain bike skills coaching session?. It was an amazing session with 3 guys who wanted to unlock the rider inside them. Looking and positioning were needing correcting. As was their set ups and them boom! Suddenly everything became simple and easier for them. From steeps to drops, berms to jumps, wall rides to gaps and so on.

Gregory And Simon Pt 2

Well, what a couple of days it’s been. The boys arrived feeling the effects of yesterday’s mountain bike skills coaching session but I built them back up gradually before pushing their mental skills into use again. It’s hard for me to describe the session but bigger drops, woodwork, riding over obstacles that would have been impossible for them previously were all included. I’ll let the videos and pics tell the rest

Simon And Son

Today was a session for Simon and His son Jacob. They wanted to drop and jump more and find out why and how to do it. I ran them through my skills check and set up check that shows us all what areas need working on and then it was time to get into the air. From the get go, everything was easier they said and felt simple and non dangerous.. I’ll let the pics say the rest.

kai Fills The Gaps In His Riding

Kai Was recommended coming to me for a session two years ago in a bar in Morzine. Today was the day and I began with isolating the physical skills and showing him why I needed to adjust his set up too. I worked on his foot placement and body positioning in all areas before I could get inside his head and rewire his mental game. Boom! what a session it was as I built the session up gradually from simple drops to tables to gaps and cornering before working on line choice and linking multiple sections and gaps on a trail.

Greg And Kamil Fly

Greg and Kamil wanted to gain confidence in their riding, particularly cornering and jumping. They commonly washed out the front wheel in turns and wanted to know why. The skills check showed them why as I found foot and body positioning were in need or changing and that led on to developing their mental skills sets.

Line Choice And Stuff

I have coached Gerald before, two years ago in fact and he wanted to return to find out why he feels so sketchy in corners but also to move his riding on further. He showed me a video of his riding and washing out in turns but I’d already seen why when watching him ride his bike during the skills check. I worked hard on his footwork and positioning and linking drops and gaps into turns all session long. What a session it was too!!!!!

The Return Of Jim And Paul

I coached Jim and Paul two years ago and they returned to work on their jumping for next years planned Alps trip and wanted to know how to gain height and distance when jumping. I isolated the physical skills set and then worked on the head game. I then built the session gradually, always checking the pace of the session was ok for them. What a session it was. Riding over obstacles, tabletops, gap jumps, drops to 5ft and smooth and fast cornering too.
