Specific coaching sessions that will improve your technical skills or gain increased overall confidence.

All done safely and in a controlled environment, we are able to transfer our knowledge from years of riding and racing in a manner that allows you to build a solid platform.
Taking control of the bike in every instance is the safe and skilled way to progress, but also understanding the how’s and whys of control. We can all hit a descent at speed but are you conformable, confident and safe?

Each rider will have their own individual areas for improvement - we can help with;

  • Fluidity through the core skills, body position, braking, climbing, descending and cornering
  • Maintaining momentum and speed
  • Safely rolling objects
  • Approach, take-off and landing of jumps
  • Drop offs
  • Manuals, wheelies and stoppies

We have developed our own private skills course with a number of dedicated features (rock garden, drop offs, jumps and series of table tops), teaching you confidence in approach, mid-air and landing and allowing you to transfer this skill onto the natural terrain and tackle in a more relaxed manner.
