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.

David Uses His Gift Voucher

David was given a gift voucher for a private one to one skills session and today was the day. Already an experienced rider on technical singletrack he wanted to understand riding jumps and drops more and also berm riding.

I broke down his skills set and rebuilt his riding and also gave him a framework of things to ask himself when challenged by a feature on a trail.

Cracker of a day 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.

Kev And Jon Fly

Kev and Jon wanted a private session to focus on jumping and ironing out any habits their collective years of mountain biking had embedded. When I said how about the good stuff you already do they looked puzzled. I focused on foot positioning, looking and body positioning to begin with and after a set up change to enhance this, I started to unlock their mental game too. It’s not about the bike either as Jon rode an ebike and kevin rode a regular mtb.

Jon And Jason’s Session

What an awesome start to the week’s coaching. I had coached Jason a good few years back and he wanted to return with his mate Jon to identify and correct any errors in their skills sets.

I worked on looking and positioning for this session and then applying the mental skills to judge speed and whether to ride things.
