Rob’s Bike Park Wales Prep Session

Rob has been riding for years but wanted to know why his confidence has gradually waned and why his cornering wasn’t on point. Also, why does he feel like he is just hanging on at trail centres like Bike Park Wales.

I ran him through a skills check to identify for both of us why it was going wrong and I rebuilt his riding from there.

Drops, jumps, pumping, wall rides, tabletops and berms were all ridden and linked together too after the all important demonstrations from me.

Great session

The gap In Doug’s Riding

Doug first came to me for coaching 4yrs ago and wanted to return to find out why he is comfortable jumping tabletops but not gaps. I laid the outline for the session in my head and worked on the subtle change in his riding techniques and that made a huge difference.

We began with riding over obstacles to enable him to feel the difference in his usual technique and to create a conscious change for him. I drops and tabletops were next before moving to gap jumping. It was awesome to see the smile on his face when he sailed over the first gap jump as he understood what he had done technically and that really made a difference mentally.

Niall pt2 Xmas Session

Today was a continuation from Friday’s session with Niall when it was too windy to jump. Today it was perfect and I was able to build on his mountain bike skills coaching session and add jumping tabletops and gaps into his armoury.

What a brilliant way to end for the Xmas break. I’m available from January for 2019 mountain bike skills coaching. Happy Xmas!

Niall’s one to one pt 1

Niall was recommended my mountain bike skills coaching by his friend and mine Dims. He wanted to get to grips with riding a modern mountain bike after years of riding on the road.

The high winds meant we did a couple of hours and the next part will be on xmas eve.

I worked on his mental skills and applied his muscle memory from his other sports to this one and that all made it seem, well too easy.

Vic and Piotr’s session

Vic has been coached by me before and wanted to return on his e-bike and his Piotr joined him for a private booking.

I began with the skills check and made some small adjustments to them and their bikes before piecing it all together.

Jumps, drops, steeps, berms, pumping, getting over obstacle and even wallrides were on the menu today.
