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.

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!

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!!

Four Friends

Ian, Roger, Dave and Jon came to me via recommendation and they described their abilities as non existent. The skills check showed the missing skills and armed with that info, I proceeded to change how they thought about riding their bikes. We worked on cornering, linking sections together, riding obstacles, drops, jumps, steep drop offs and drops into corners too.

Another fantastic Friday.

Matt Returns with Three Mates

I coached Matt on a public session in May and he wanted to return with his 3 mates David, Iain and Dave for a private session to work on their individual skill sets even though their abilities differed. I focused on positioning hugely today with them and that followed onto their head game.

The session moved through hopping logs to cornering, steeps, drops, jumps and gaps.

All four of them concentrated on their missing skills and worked hard at redressing them and slowly it all pieced together, with a few laughs thrown in too.

Lee’s 2nd Session

I coached Lee a few weeks back with his buddy Tim and he wanted to return to cement the session and if possible move on too.

I focused on his positioning through out the session and it became something he could feel when it was right or wrong. He was riding bigger obstacles, jumping further, riding gaps and cornering with a speed and control he never thought possible.

Paul’s Beginner Session

Paul Has rode on and off road but mostly road cycled. He wanted to get into mtb more and a coaching session was the way he wanted to go. I was able to talk to him in skiing terms during this session as he had far greater experience doing that. Footwork, looking and positioning were adjusted and worked hard on throughout the session.
