Greg And Kamil Fly

Greg and Kamil wanted to gain confidence in their riding, particularly cornering and jumping. They commonly washed out the front wheel in turns and wanted to know why. The skills check showed them why as I found foot and body positioning were in need or changing and that led on to developing their mental skills sets.

Line Choice And Stuff

I have coached Gerald before, two years ago in fact and he wanted to return to find out why he feels so sketchy in corners but also to move his riding on further. He showed me a video of his riding and washing out in turns but I’d already seen why when watching him ride his bike during the skills check. I worked hard on his footwork and positioning and linking drops and gaps into turns all session long. What a session it was too!!!!!

Getting Paul’s Mind Right

Paul has had a couple of big accidents over the past couple of years and has been on a search for the reason why. His path led to me and my skills check showed him why. I worked hard on his weaker right sided turns but mostly his positioning to a point where he could apply his mental skills. It was a joy to watch him fly!

Father And Son Learn To Fly

Mark and his son Oisan made the journey across from Wales for a mountain bike skills session with me after hearing recommendations.

I began by correcting their physical skill sets and then I worked on their head game. Cornering was a huge thing to work on and they got better and better as well as riding wall rides, gaps, tabletops and drops.

Andrea Finds His Flow

Andrea wanted to gain control of his trail riding and learn how to flow through trails more. I discovered he was weaker in his right hand turns and also that he gave away positioning when descending too.

I focused on footwork and body positioning and we applied the corrected skills to the techniques required. Steeps, drops, riding over obstacles, flat, bermed and off camber corners and pumping were all worked on . A brilliant session unfolded as Andrea embedded his new riding skills.

Padraig And Ollie’s Session

I coached these two separately on public sessions a year or more ago. They wanted to return to develop their riding and regain lost confidence.

I broke down their skills sets and rebuilt them. Better cornering and judging effort and distance when jumping were on the menu. Steep drops, gaps, tabletops and riding obstacles all seemed simpler than previously.
