Fantastic Friday

Tim and Dan ride Friston forest and heard about my coaching and wanted to come for a mountain bike skills coaching session to work on their jumping and cornering.

I had to work hard on their footwork and positioning in all aspects of their techniques and then we applied the all important mental skills into the mix. Boy, what a session.

Jon’s Mountain Bike Skills Coaching Session

Jon wanted to further his riding and came to me this time for coaching after seeing my skills tips videos on youtube. The skills check showed me the areas in his physical skill set that needed correcting and it didn’t take Jon long to begin to self diagnose errors. Foot placement and body position were the words of the day for this session .

Otto And Deb’s

Otto and his wife Deb’s wanted to come to me after hearing from his friends bout going to see the Jedi (my nickname). The skills check showed looking,footwork and positioning needed correcting and that would then allow them to explore the mental skills in their riding.

Rob’s Session

Rob wanted to understand jumping so I broke the phases down for him but only once I’d isolated the techniques involved. I worked on footwork and positioning in all ares of his riding and what a change it was.

Ruth’s Holiday Prep Session

Ruth goes on a riding holiday every year and wanted to learn to jump and get faster through technique for her holiday. I worked on looking and positioning and we applied this to lots of technical variations of trail obstacle.

Jon, Seb And Dave

The boys arrived on time and I ran them through my skills check and set up check. I found footwork and positioning needed work and then i gradually built the session around using the skill set both physical and mentally.

The Hips Don’t Lie

I have coached Hilda May and Pete four years ago and they wanted to return for a tune up as Hilda May was loosing confidence after a few crashes on long rides. The skills check showed me what needed work on and I worked hard on footwork and positioning, which led to applying the mental skills too.

We then worked on a multitude of sections, applying the techniques I teach. Drops, jumps, steeps, cornering and riding obstacles.
