Dan races nps xc races and wanted to get better technically and understand what he needed to do on a mountain bike. I explained the physical skills and isolated body positioning and looking needed correcting and some very small adjustments made huge differences.
I worked hard with Dan on gaining speed and not trying to be fast. It was apparent that it felt slow to him but he knew it was faster as a by product.
We worked on applying a simple skills set to lots of different environments and linked them together.
For over 6hrs , Dan worked hard on linking his new skills set together. Linking steeps to corners, turning through drop offs, gap jumps, drops, corners, controlling air time and distance, switchbacks and riding over obstacles to name just a few..
I really enjoyed being part of this session as it wasn’t just airtime but was about simple techniques.
