Richard has had coaching elsewhere before and still felt his riding had stagnated. He said he cant get the rear wheel off the floor and struggles in general in corners and had never jumped before. I worked on his set up and physical skills of body and foot positioning, looking and line choice as well as the mental skills. I demonstrated how and why to do things on the trails and why it works. In no time at all ( 5 mins ) he could get either wheel off the ground and could ride over small obstacles easily. Drops now felt simple and controlled. Jumping a tabletop was next (something he’d never been able to do ) and soon sailed over that followed by a 7ft gap jump too. Awesome progression and the hard part is now his homework as with everyone of practice to cement his new skills set.
