Ewan and Alex wanted to learn to get into the air and really thought they’d struggle but I explained that their snowboard and skateboarding back grounds could be used to help their mtbing. Neither had cleared a jump before but that was definitely going to change.

I worked on correcting their physical errors and once I had instilled the Jedi skills it all clicked. Jumps, drops, steeps, gaps, turns and pumping all seamed easy to them and it wa only the mental game that sometimes held them back. Brilliant progress guys!
