The Downhill Race Speed coaching is session is all about how do we go fast?
Its a combination of a number of factors:-
- Straightest line
- Opening up turns
- When you brake and when you don’t!
- Knowing the track, when to push or when to sit up
The day will compromise of:-
Meet and greet – Bike setup, Fit the timing chips from Freelap
Warm up on a simple DH track.
Laying down a base time on a selected DH track
Focussing on the top half of the track we break it down looking at body positioning, cornering, where should you be looking and line choice
Second timed run of the top section applying what we’ve looked at
Focussing on the lower half of the track we break it down looking at body positioning, cornering, where should you be looking and line choice
Timed full runs of the track we’ve been practising, see and feel the difference!
Downhill Race Speed is our final step of our coaching pathway. However it doesn’t end there! These coaching days will focus on a different track each time, so there will always be something new to learn. Want something more bespoke? Then how about a 121 with one of our British Cycling Level 3 MTB coaches? Or a personalised training programme – Wye Performance?
