Liz and Ben had been to coaching elsewhere previously but it never seemed to make sense to them and they struggled with it all. Their path led to us at ukbikeskills and on meeting them, I explained the outline of a skills set and what was involved and then set to work. I worked from the feet up on them and soon they were in a different positioning entirely on their bikes.
Drops and jumps were first on the menu and the look on Liz’s face when she flew for the first time was a picture. On jumping tabletops they once again flew and Ben even rode his first ever gap jump. Cornering was next and that really made the difference. By the end of the session they were pumping, jumping, dropping and railing turns with more control than ever and faster too. More importantly, they knew why too.
