Mike, Rob & Nick get 'flowing' 19.10.2012

Mike got in touch with us as he and a couple of friends wanted to develop their MTB skills. We put together a Private course for them looking at the key skills they wanted to develop and to help them progress their riding. They ride a lot locally here in North Wales Llandegla, Coed y Brenin and some of the more natural trails too.

We started off looking at the 'Core Skills' the essential building blocks for confident, fun riding. 


We got them looking at how they brake on the trail as well as pumping, starting to manual over small trail features like roots and rocks as well as pushing down steps and small drops and getting some air off the drops too. 


Cornering is a key skills and we spent quite a bit of time developing the guys footwork and looking skills as well as riding some steeper and tighter corners too.

We had a quick lunch break and over a brew we reviewed the videos from the morning session before heading out in to the skills area to put it all in to practice on the trails again. We had a look at riding small drops and also how to 'soak up'  jumps and other trail features.

Had a really good day with the guys and they all have plenty to take away and develop in to their instinctive riding now. Hopefully see them all out on the trails soon!
