Jo’s Jumping

I coached Jo two years ago but after a crash early this year she found her jumping suffered but also her head game too. I had to enable her to recognise why by showing her the physical errors and once corrected everything became faster and smoother as a result.

Ian’s Mountain Bike Skills Session

Ian has never ever got his wheels off the ground and it was his physical skills that needed correcting before I could show him why it’s a simple physical act to do so.

Footwork in berms was an issue as was positioning on steep terrain and drop offs.

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.

Dave And Andy Fly

Dave and Andy wanted some coaching to learn to carry speed through turns , ride over logs and learn how to jump properly.

I broke their riding down and made a small adjustment to Dave’s set up and away we went. The session unfolded under the blue skies and what a session it was. Now they knew about their body positioning and understood the mental skills , their riding really bloomed.

Another Session With The Gatwick Boys

Colin, Tom, Andy and Tony have been to me twice previously and returned with Ian for a skills session. I had to work on positioning and footwork mostly today and also the head game.

The session consisted of Tabletop jumps, style, riding obstacles, drops and gaps and linking them all together.

Joe’s Session

Joe wanted to find the answer he always felt was just out of his grasp but that he was so close to. He came to me after reading recommendations and today was the day.

I deconstructed his riding and rebuilt it so he knew why it was right or wrong, he could feel it.

I worked on his physical and mental skills and we drew on his experiences from other sports. What a session!
