Steve’s Session

Steve took advantage of a short notice availability session to get to grips with his riding. He has a background in jujitsu and I was able to use this muscle memory to develop his riding.

He wanted to get more fluid in his turns as he felt on the verge of crashing when riding through the trees.

Footwork, looking and body positioning were all worked on and adjusted.

Tony’s Session

I have coached Tony regularly over the past 8yrs and today was his latest session where I showed him how the skills sets apply to common things he finds on the trails and how simpler it all is.

What a session it turned into as we moved through riding over obstacles, manualing through things, linking jumps and gaps, steep terrain and corner grip.

Tim, Brian And Mark’s Session

Tim, Brian and Mark came to me for a skills session to work on drops and jumps but it was more than that. I worked on steep terrain, riding obstacles and cornering too , but not before correcting their set ups and skills sets.

I worked on footwork and positioning mostly and made them ware of the mental skills that I teach too.

Riding With The Correct Foot Forward

I coached Stuart a year ago and he’d struggled to embed the skills set and couldn’t understand why. He returned today to see if I could see what’s wrong and it lay in his foundation, footwork.

Stuart always twisted in the air when jumping and this created a doubt in him as it felt hit and miss but a change in his lead foot cemented both this session and the last too.

The change really changed his positioning to a more unconscious level as the last session suddenly all made sense, he had a balance on his bike and he could feel it.

Joe’s Session

Joe wanted to find the answer he always felt was just out of his grasp but that he was so close to. He came to me after reading recommendations and today was the day.

I deconstructed his riding and rebuilt it so he knew why it was right or wrong, he could feel it.

I worked on his physical and mental skills and we drew on his experiences from other sports. What a session!

Six Go Mad From Essex

Cath, Stuart, Mark, Adrian, James and Jackson made the trip to me after being recommended it from a rider at Hadleigh Olympic trails.

They wanted to push their riding on and understand what they were doing right or wrong. They all were at different levels in their riding but that made no difference.

I corrected their physical skills before applying the mental skill set to loads of different applications on trails. I think the pictures and videos tell the story better than I
