Bunny hops to wheelies
"I went on a skills session with Brian last week.
I've always wanted to "bunny-hop" since it's so useful in negotiating terrain. Brian's instruction put me on the fast track. What started out as "bunny-hop" training turned into me riding the longest wheelies in my life! Literally, by just being next to Brian and watching him ride wheelies I was able to transfer his body English into my own attempts and I couldn't believe it!
It was like I was learning by osmosis just riding next to him. Thanks Brian, you are a generous and passionate teacher! Looking fwd to the next skills session for sure."

"I've known Brian for many years and I'm still amazed at the talent he exudes. The one day skills camp I attended was beyond anything I ever anticipated. Brian gave me a chance to take my riding ability up another notch or two. Bike handling techniques, especially corning skills were my primary focus. My wheelies are beginning to be "wheelies"! After a one day camp, I felt I got all I needed to be more confident and worthy of bigger mountain bike challenges. Brian's demeanor is such that one feels he tailor makes the session directly for you. His easy approach for improving one's skills is unquestionably the best I've been around. Brian is a natural coach with soft spoken advice that I continue to use on my every day rides. Bottom line: I felt stuck in my riding technique until Brian helped me move to the next plateau level of riding. Everyone will benefit from a day of riding with Brain!"

Takes you to the next level
“Brian's patience and enthusiasm are what stands out most for me in the clinics I have taken with him. His instruction was fantastic – within two hours he had me completing bunny hops, hopping successfully over logs and managing sharp turns with better finesse. My kids have also taken clinics with Trill and Brian and it has taken their riding to the next level. He is the type of person you want hanging around your children.”
