"Ryan breaks down both stoppies and nose pivots into a logical progression of smaller skills, each of which is addressed in its own video with drills to help the learning process, plus advice about possible stumbling blocks to watch for. Ryan gradually leads the rider to merge the skills into one smooth, stylish movement. It’s easy to pose questions or post videos of progress (or challenges), and the Coaches and Ambassadors are quick to reply with insightful, encouraging comments. I highly recommend this course and Ryan Leech Connection to anyone who would like to improve their MTB skills!"

"I’m usually confronted with tight switchbacks on my holidays to the Alps or Spain. There are a lot of tutorials out there but I often found these more confusing than helpful. Ryan’s unique course breaks down all the variations so you learn much quicker and safer. Then you can use the right technique at the right place."

Unlike powder snow, fresh dirt doesn't fall from the sky. It's fun to skid, but the reality is that skids drag dirt off trails. There must be a better way get around those tight switchbacks...
Red Bull Pro-Rider and technical riding genius, Thomas Ohler demonstrates why these trail-friendly skills are so important to add to your skills arsenal. Thomas is guest coach for this new course.
