Kai Was recommended coming to me for a session two years ago in a bar in Morzine. Today was the day and I began with isolating the physical skills and showing him why I needed to adjust his set up too. I worked on his foot placement and body positioning in all areas before I could get inside his head and rewire his mental game. Boom! what a session it was as I built the session up gradually from simple drops to tables to gaps and cornering before working on line choice and linking multiple sections and gaps on a trail.
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.
Rob and Jon have been coached by me twice each on both public and private sessions but wanted to return together and push their riding on further. I focused on their physical skill set before working on the head game and showing them the true possibilities in their riding. Drops, jumps, gaps, berms, steeps and riding over fallen trees were all taken on board and ridden . What a session!
Richard and his son Ben wanted a session to get their wheels off the ground and to stop being so start/stop in corners. I worked on footwork and positioning as well as the all important mental skills too. We applied their new skill sets to drops, jumps, a gap jump, berms and steeps . A cracker of a session.
Ian first contacted me 2yrs ago and we finally got our diaries together for him to have a mountain bike skills coaching session to iron out his jumping technique. I could see that his cornering needed some serious work too but it all led into the same footwork and positioning skills missing. Once I had corrected those, everything was easier and simpler for Tim.
What a session dude!!
