Sixth Element Wheels

Graham of http://www.sixthelement.co.uk wanted to come to me for coaching and to understand why he has always struggled with getting into the air.

I focused on his foot positioning and body positioning throughout the session and used his muscle memory of skiing to really enhance his riding.

Two Steve’s , One Session

Today’s Session was about using both Steve’s experiences from other sports like tennis and snowboarding to enhance their mountain biking skills. Foot positioning, body and looking were all pieced together bit by bit

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.

Autumn Skills Session

Dan made the trip down to me from Stoke and wanted to get more confident jumping and riding overall. I had to work on his footwork and body positioning and adjusted his set up as per my YouTube videos. I worked on cornering, pumping, drops, steeps, jumps and a couple of gap jumps too!

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.

Mick, Chris And Tim’s Session

I had coached Chris and Mick a couple of years ago and this time they were here with their mate Tim for his 50th birthday present. Tim was worried about being able to ride the stuff they would but his fears soon were forgotten. I had to work on positioning in corners as well as when jumping. They wanted to get better at drops but also gaps too.

Jonny’s session

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.
