Chris’s Session

Chris came to me to work on his fear of jumping and the skills check showed me where the seat of this fear laid. I broke down his jump technique and separated what he was trying to do into a simpler action. It was his cornering however that really took off as he used his skiing experience to really start to carve his turns.

Andrea Finds His Flow

Andrea wanted to gain control of his trail riding and learn how to flow through trails more. I discovered he was weaker in his right hand turns and also that he gave away positioning when descending too.

I focused on footwork and body positioning and we applied the corrected skills to the techniques required. Steeps, drops, riding over obstacles, flat, bermed and off camber corners and pumping were all worked on . A brilliant session unfolded as Andrea embedded his new riding skills.

Whistler Preparation

I coached Chris a few years ago and he returned with his riding buddy Jim before he is off to Canada for a riding holiday. They both wanted to push their riding further but also identify and errors in their skills sets.

I discovered that Chris needed work on right hand turns and that Jim needed his footwork and positioning sorted before we could move to jumping tabletops and drops. I worked hard on their berm riding and they grew faster as control enhanced. The whole session grew and grew with wall rides, gaps to 16ft, linking drops and multiple gap jumps and turns as well a wood to wood gaps.

Amazing riding guys!

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.

An E-bike’s Session

Nigel and Grant ride e-bikes and wanted to learn to control them more in corners and also learn to do drops on them. I adjusted their set ups and made the necessary adjustments to their skills sets by working on positioning, footwork and looking. I think the pictures tell the story of the session better than I.
