Bob Gets His Wings

Bob wanted a one to one session with myself so he could focus on the things that scare him on his bike. He started mtbing in his 50’s and is keen to learn from the position of a complete beginner, or so he thought.

I made some small adjustments to his bike and placed a skill set into his mind and body. What a difference it all made. He was jumping tabletops and a gap jump in just over an hour after learning to apply the same skill set to riding over obstacles. I think the pictures and video show how it went.

Rachel And Tom’s Session

Rachel and Tom wanted to understand the why and what to do in their mountain biking. I broke their skills right down and rebuilt them, focusing on body positioning and looking and then applying those to the techniques required in mountain biking.

They wanted to learn cornering and drops but I was able to do more than that as I showed them steep drop offs, jumps, pumping and linking berms together to.

Ben’s Skills Session

Ben has a background in roller hockey and skateboarding and has recently been bitten by the mountain bike bug. He wanted to gain the illusive flow of a trail and maybe learn to jump, but the session was way more than that as I was able to use his experiences from other sports and apply them to this sport.

Andrea Begins Her MTB Journey

I have coached Andrea’s partner Peter before and he bought her a voucher for a private one to one session with me so that Andrea could start off her mtbing on the right foot.

She wanted to feel less scared and understand what she had to do and why. What a change it was as she used her new skills sets and applied them to drops, pumping, cornering, rock gardens, riding over obstacles and steeps too!

Kelvin’s Session

Kelvin contacted me a couple of weeks ago looking for a mountain bike skills coaching winter session . He wanted to understand what to do and why when he rides. The skills check and set up changes made sense to him as I identified footwork and positioning needed some work and I made various small adjustments that made a colossal difference.

Jumping tabletops, gap jumps, drops, drop offs , corners and pumping were all worked on, demonstrated by me before Kelvin repeated.

Brilliant session and fantastic progression

Steve’s One to One session

Steve rides road bikes mostly but began riding mtb last year and wanted to come to see me for mountain bike skills coaching after recommendations from fellow riders. I was able to use he experiences from other sports to get the most out of his session. He wanted to know why he struggled in berms and drops and why steep sections always felt sketchy. I worked on his positioning in all areas and his footwork in turn and the change was immediate.
