Are you letting fiction hold you back?! The number one factor holding you back from reaching your potential is your mind! Don’t let fiction, fantasy or conjecture hold you back. Attack these self limiting beliefs and achieve your best.
With camps selling out all over the place I haven’t had much time to ride, take a day off or try and coach you through working on my blog! Thanks for your patience! We are working on easing my work load (camps take a lot of administrative work too) so I can have a life […]
An email from one of my mountain bike skills camp students. I am a fortunate man!
There are two spots on Rustlers Loop and one on Prime Cut where mountain bikers have gone out of there way to harm a 200 year old (on Prime Cut) and a couple of 100 year old trees (on Rustlers) just so they can ride a section with more ease! Dumbing down trails is bad enough but harm trees and the desert to do so?! Wow! Please follow the IMBA rules of the trail and walk over (not around) sections of trail you cannot ride.
I have spent the last 15 years studying bike handling and how bike setup effects bike handling. In that time I have kept and open mind and experimented with bars as narrow as 22″ and as wide as 32″ and stems from 150mm to 30mm. I didn’t invent a single skill or bike set-up theory myself I tired what other, “better riders” suggested. Everything I teach I have learned through others (world champions like Marla Streb and Greg Minnaar, motorcycle coaches, ski coaches, gymnastic coaches) and then personally tested out their ideas and had many of my top students (Pro racers like Ross Schnell, Chris Van Dine, Lynda Wallenfells, etc.) test these theories.
