Nic contacted me for mountain bike coaching wanting to work on gaining height from jumps and the skills check showed why he struggled before. I needed to move his positioning and work on looking massively. That left only the mental skills.
When applying his new skills set, drops suddenly felt easier and more controlled and he began finding that elusive pop he’d been after. During the session we worked on cornering , which he got smoother and way faster than ever before and we linked drops into corners as well as linking jumps in succession. Pumping became simpler as well as judging speed for gaps. He now needed less speed as the technique blossomed.
Five hours of coaching a rider who was on a journey to find the answer he felt he was close to but could find.
