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 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.
Harrison is 14 yrs old and wanted to work on his cornering and also judging distance when jumping. I worked on his positioning and set up, which really enhanced his physical skill set. Flat, bermed and off camber turns were smoother and faster and his jumping was more stylish too. I think the pics say it all
Graham of http://www.sixthelement.co.uk wanted to come to me for coaching and to understand why he has always struggled with getting into the air.
I focused on his foot positioning and body positioning throughout the session and used his muscle memory of skiing to really enhance his riding.
Pete wanted to understand how and when to jump as previously it had been hit and miss. I broke down his skills set and rebuilt it, working on positioning massively. That led on to his mental skills. We went from riding obstacles, jumping, drops, steeps and corners. Great session dude and i’m looking forward to hearing your riding updates.
