Bryan And Ross

I coached Ross two years ago and he return with riding buddy Bryan to move his riding on but also iron out some errors he felt in his riding.

I adjusted their set up and worked on positioning and the all important looking. Foot position on flat pedals made a huge difference too. I think the pictures tell the tale better than I can.

Mark’s 2nd Session

Mark returned for another session of the year and wanted to work on steeper stuff and getting over obstacles whilst climbing too. I worked on his weaker left hand turns too and we then pieced together both sessions learning.

Using a section of trail, I worked on him becoming faster with technique and he shaved lots of time through 3 sections by linking them effectively.

I’m looking forward to his next session.

It’s Not About The Bike

Alex and Tom ride an e-bike and standard bike respectively and wanted to share a private mountain bike skills coaching session with myself. I explained that their is no skills difference between either bike and that it is themselves that have the greatest effect.

They wanted to learn to get air and perhaps clear a tabletop but the session gave so much more.

Tweaking Nick’s Riding

Nick came to me for mountain bike skills coaching to understand why his jumping was hit and miss and lacked height too. The skills check showed him why and also that he was weak in his cornering too. I worked hard on his positioning and footwork in all areas and in particular jumps and right hand turns.

Stuart’s mountain bike skills coaching session

Stuart booked in with me a few weeks ago and took advantage of the all year round ride able conditions of the skills area. I broke his skills set down and worked on his looking and positioning and then the mental skill set also.

Alex and Gemma learn Trail Centre Skills

Alex and Gemma were due to come to me a couple of months ago but 40mph+ winds meant I had to delay their mountain bike skills coaching session until today.

They ride regularly at the Forest of Dean and Swinley forest and wanted to finally learn to fly and maybe cornering if I had time. I smiled as I said we’ll do pumping, drops, jumps, steeps etc easily in one session and what a session it was!

 

 

Mark’s one to one

Mark wanted to get some mountain bike skills coaching and was recommended to come to me. I ran him through a simple skills check and showed him why things were not working and some were. I then went on to show the application of a simple skills set to everything we could on trails. Drops, jumps, pumping, drop offs and berm riding were all ridden and linked together too.
