Ian wanted to have a one to one mountain bike skills coaching session with myself and had a list of things he hoped to attain. I explained that once I correct his physical skill set and adjusted his bike set up all would become easier and clearer.

Ian had never got his front wheel into the air and the look on his face when I told him that soon he’ll get two wheels into the air was a picture. Soon that was happening and once he’d used his mental skills he moved to a larger drop and the same result of smooth , uncomplicated landings occured.

Cornering , rock gardens, linking drop offs into corners, steeper terrain and using a trails energy were all covered. By the end of the session he was even bunny hoping.
