Graham wanted to work on his riding all round. The skills check showed the weakness he has in right turns and also his technique for jumping needed isolating and correcting. From there,I built the session.

See what I did there 🙂
I used to race against Colin over twenty years ago in triathlon and he was recommended my coaching for mountain biking. It was awesome to see him again and to coach him at his new chosen sport of mountain biking. He wanted to learn to jump, but the session went further than he thought as I brought him through jumps, drops, steeps, cornering, riding obstacles and so on. Colin applied his new skills to everything using the mental skill set i teach.
Amazing session dude!
Among other techniques but on meeting, I explained the simple skill set I teach and it’s application.I corrected their missing skills and made some small adjustments to their set up (explained in my youtube vids )
Looking and positioning were paramount in needing work and also Marks’ footwork. Jumps, drops, berms, steeps, obstacles, pumping and gap jumps were all ridden and they both understood when it was right or wrong and why.
I have coached Lisa’s husband before and he bought her a gift voucher for a one to one session from me to build her confidence on her bike.
Lisa wanted to feel more control in corners and in her riding in general. I worked on the physical skills set and the mental skills too and the difference was huge by the end of the session.
I coached Ross two years ago and he return with riding buddy Bryan to move his riding on but also iron out some errors he felt in his riding.
I adjusted their set up and worked on positioning and the all important looking. Foot position on flat pedals made a huge difference too. I think the pictures tell the tale better than I can.
I coached Luke last year and he wanted to return and do another session but this time with his mates Mike and Gareth.
I isolated the skills that needed work, positioning and footwork and that enabled me to work on their mental skills too.
I built the session up gradually and we applied their skills set to as many sections as possible. Tabletops, gap jumps, drops, berms and wall rides were all on the menu.
