I have coached Rich and Chris before over two years ago and they wanted to return for some more mountain bike skills coaching to understand the errors they felt in drops and jumps but it was their cornering that stood out that needed a small correction and that made a huge difference.

Rich explained he felt uncomfortable doing blind drops and gaps and Chris wanted to go bigger than the 9ft gap jump he’d done on his last lesson if possible. Well, what a session it turned out to be in near torrential rain but the smiles shone through. Drops to 5ft, tabletops to 14ft, gaps to 10ft as well as railing through berms and linking jumps together. Oh I nearly forgot, Riding over large obstalces too.

Great session guys and I’ll see you again.
