Karla and Nick’s prep session

Karla and Nick have only just began mountain biking and wanted coaching from myself after recommendations from their friends , as they have entered the trans Alps race in the summer.

I did my skills check and found that I needed to work on their body positioning and looking skills as well as  their mental skills. Through the session we covered getting airtime from drops, rode berms, pumped trails, Rode steps, rocks and linked sections of trails together as I worked on their fluidity. We even rode a near vertical drop off. Both Karla and Nick applied their mental skills to decide what to ride or not so the session remained controlled.

Awesome progress guys, high5!
