Do you know what you’re doing out on the trail or do you often ask how can I ride with more confidence and speed? Well that is why former MTB champion and PMBI certified skills coach Leigh Donovan took her 30 years of BMX and mountain bike racing knowledge to video. Today, Leigh has launched a progressive video series “Mountain biking 101” with 10 skills that can help many riders take their riding to the next level. The video series is focused on supporting riders who are either new to the sport or for riders looking to refine their skill set.
Leigh launched ichoosebikes.com in January of 2014 with the goal to help educate more riders around the world and said about the video release, “Many riders do not have access to skill camps in their area, so I decided to make a 'free' video series that could get riders started”. With help from Liv Cycling, Leigh was able to make these 90 second videos come to life. So in less than 15 minutes you can watch 10 skills to help you become a better rider, that’s not bad. The series starts with helping you find your balance points by learning how to separate your bike and body, you will also learn how to better understand a proper bunny-hop, and Leigh even gives a fresh look at re-starting on a steep climb, because in her words, “Climbing is not my forte, and I hate walking, so I feel like I’ve become an expert at this,” she went on to say, “ these are short videos to help riders gain a bit more knowledge and confidence when riding…the videos are more of a glimpse of what is being taught at mountain bike camps around the world”.
