Private Mountain Bike coaching 

No matter what your level, absolute beginner or a seasoned and experienced rider and racer, our coaches will support you to improve all aspects of your riding based on our proven coaching model.

Hourly rate :  CHF100 (for 1-4 people)

Take your riding to the next level.

Our private tuition focuses on your goals and building your knowledge, skills and experience as a rider. Our coaches provide detailed insight into you as a rider using our coaching model as a reference point.

So if it’s starting out as a rider and looking to build core skills, we can help. Building your confidence as a new or developing rider and improving skills on the trail, no problem. If it’s cornering at speed, riding with flow, descending with confidence, getting your wheels off the ground, taming technically challenging trail features or choosing the best line we can cover it.

Progressive development.

Typically a two to three hour session will ensure you have time to progress your riding with expert trailside coaching. Our coaches focus on ensuring strong foundations to enable your skills to progressively move on.


We can run a session just for you or upto 4 people, tailored to your needs. Simply contact us to discuss your customised program.

Our coaches have years of riding, racing and coaching experience which will help you to achieve your riding goals.

My husband and I had a wonderful day with Nick. When we arrived at his home in Rances, we immediately felt at ease in his presence. We left as soon as we arrived for a first stop of 2h30. Lots of wise advice, little details too that make all the difference and a great listening from Nick. We suffered, it was not easy BUT so good. For my part, thanks to his advice, I was able to tame my lack of confidence in the descents. Nick also corrects the different positions on the bike very well and this has helped my husband a lot.

Little lunch break at Nick’s place, what a joy to meet his family and really so nice. Thank you

And in the afternoon, a new start for a completely different 2h30 landscape. Breathtaking, it was really 2 days in 1 alone.

We were able to apply, train Nick’s advice and all this in a good-natured atmosphere and in a magnificent landscape. A big thank-you.
