MTB SCP #35: Top lessons I learned last in 2010.

Over the last year I’ve had a lot of great experiences and read a lot of great books, all of which had an impact on my riding and the training programs I write. However, 3 things stood out over the rest and I wanted to share the lessons I learned from them:

– Mike Boyle’s Facility Mentorship

– The 4 Hour Work Week

– Better Ride Coaches Camp

Hope you enjoyed the last year of the MTB Strength Coach Podcast, I look forward to doing more of them next year.

Ride Strong!

    Hey James, Happy New Year to you and thanks so much for all your work over 2010. I especially enjoy the podcasts, always learn something new.

    I’m curious about your comments regarding manualling and jumping. I’ve had a real hard time visualizing how to boost a dirt jump at slower speeds. I consider myself competent at manualling and bunny hopping, but I never thought of applying manual principles to a dirt jump. Are you actually pushing your rear tire down and in front of you when you hit a dirt jump? When I look at pictures of pros going over jumps, it seems to me they’re leaning back to push the back tire into the lip. But maybe they’re using manual technique to push the bike in front of them? It would be cool to see you put a vid together on this!

      If you watch them though you’ll notice that they don’t actually move away from the jump, which means that they aren’t leaning back. I have some plans this year to put some vids together to demonstrate this better, I just need to get around to it.
