Harrison is 14 yrs old and wanted to work on his cornering and also judging distance when jumping. I worked on his positioning and set up, which really enhanced his physical skill set. Flat, bermed and off camber turns were smoother and faster and his jumping was more stylish too. I think the pics say it all
I have coached Jonny a few times over the years and he wanted to return as he had begun to feel like he was being bucked on jumps and landing heavy front wheel and knew I could correct this, aloso his cornering in his words had gone to shit. I broke his skills set right down again so he could understand what he was doing and why then I pieced it all back together again. Boom! what a change.
Matt came to me for mountain bike skills coaching via recommendation online. I broke his skill set down and rebuilt his looking and positioning when applying the skills to the techniques we worked on. Jumps, corners, drops, pumping and drop offs were all ridden with a control and a developed speed he’d previously not felt.
I have coached a few of the Fleet mountain bike club and today was Matt,Paul and Liz’s turn to have their perception of what they should do on a bike changed. I used their horse riding, snowboarding and skiing experiences to enhance my mountain bike skills coaching and they really got to grips with it. I worked on footwork, looking, speed and positioning as well as the mental skill set.
