John from Bolton’s Session

John came down from Bolton for his session today. He wanted to get better at cornering and also understand why he gets bucked when jumping. I broke his skills sets down and rebuilt him with an understanding of why it was right or wrong in any section. we worked on pumping, cornering, drops and jumps. John rode his first ever gap jumps today too !

Henry’s Session

Henry wanted to work on his cornering and his lack of fluidity when riding singletrack. I was able to draw on his skiing and snowboarding experiences to develop his skills set when mountain biking. I worked on his positioning when entering sections of trail as well as his looking too. Berms, flat and off camber corners, drops, jumps, steep drop offs and rocks were all simpler than ever and easier than he’d imagined.

Rich And Joe’s Session

I coached Rich in July on a public session but he wanted to return and bring his lifelong mate Joe along for a session too, so they could push their riding further. I broke their skills down and rebuilt it into a simpler and easier version of mountain biking. It really resonated with them as corners, jumps, drops, steeps and gaps all suddenly became a breeze for them.

Saturday Skills Session

I coach on Saturday’s during winter and today was the first. Dale made the trip down from Preston for his one to one wanting to learn to jump. I broke his skill set down and rebuilt it back, along with his mental skills too. Dale had never cleared a tabletop before today, but by the end of the session, Dale was clearing 9ft gaps!

Father And Son

John and his 13 yr old son Elliott came to me from Wales for a session following a recommendation from his friend. I broke their skills down and rebuilt them into more confident riders when faced with corners, drops, steeps and jumps. An awesome session it was!

Jump And Drops Public Session 21/10

The guys came to me wanting to understand what to do and why when riding jumps and drops. Public sessions are a great gateway for riders to be coached by me before deciding on private tuition. We started small and built up from there.

I’ll let the pics and videos tell the story of today.

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.
