Mike was 50 yesterday and wanted a mountain bike skills coaching session for him and his wife Claire and two children Alice and Oli. I put them through my skills check and adjusted their sets to enhance positioning and footwork. I then showed them why the techniques I teach apply to everything out on the trails from drops, jumps, riding obstacles,corners, pumping and steep drop offs. What a session it was and they got better and better through the session. The heat of the day made fatigue appear faster but the smiles didn’t fade at all.
