4 RIDERS / 4 X FULL-ON DAYS COACHING
Build from basics
Whether you just started riding bikes or have years of experience, taking it back to the basics is always beneficial.
Nailing good body position on the bike combined with fundamental key movements is vital before moving onto more advanced technical skills.
Every technique in mountain biking requires the basics to be there first.
Corner like a champ
Cornering is often overlooked or misunderstood in mountain biking. A technique that when broken down becomes very technical with lots of points to perfect.
In our opinion there is no better feeling than railing a berm or finding all that grip carrying speed around flat turns. Aimed at red route or more advanced riders. Cornering technique when mastered is very rewarding and one of our favourites to coach!
Neutralising trail and creating speed
When we say “neutralising the trail”, we mean taming trail features to bring time and control to your riding. Once mastered, you will feel more confident and comfortable. From here is where you start to go faster again – and then repeat the same process.
Trail feature such as drops, rollers, jumps, rock gardens and steps can be neutralised through body movement allowing you to feel like you are the boss of the trail!
Body movement is also key to creating speed. Learn to generate speed through utilising the terrain and using downslopes to gain speed – known in the MTB world as “pumping for speed”. Who doesn’t want to go faster without pedalling?
Is one of the most rewarding feelings in mountain biking, once mastered! It can also be one of the most daunting when you are riding up to the take off.
With a gradual build-up of jumps, some pro advice to boost confidence anyone can learn to send it!
Finding grip in tech terrain
We have all been there, looking down that section of trail thinking “how the heck?!”. The kind of trail with roots, rocks, ruts and a slice of steep gradient thrown in just to mess with your head.
With some clever line choice, advice on approach and applied technique – these sections soon become less severe looking and will allow you to conquer that scary trail!
If you know what you need to work on or have a few things you would like to brush up on, that’s not a problem.
Custom coaching days can be tailored to suit you and available times.
