I have coached Fred before and he wanted to return to iron out any bad habits that maybe had crept in and push his riding on further and share the mountain bike skills coaching session with his riding buddy John who had been riding for years and wanted to get more comfortable riding gaps in particular.

I began with my skills check and changed their set up slightly to enhance the positional changes I made in them. The session grew and grew in technical difficulty and the boys used their mental skills . By the end of the session they were riding smoother, faster and jumping further than ever too.

Drops to 5ft, tabletops to 14ft and gaps to 16ft! mad session guys.
