Here`s what people are saying about Pine Sport.
Sam Culverwell (Guernsey Velo):
With Ric's expert coaching, he has allowed me to access my full potential this year and perform to my optimum. He responds very quickly to any queries on training and his feedback on TP is always highly valued and insightful.
Training peaks allows the interaction and great communication between coach and rider, as well as allowing in depth analysis of every session, and due to Ric's coaching, I was in my best possible condition for the two biggest events of my career to date last year - including the commonwealth youth games.'
My daughter who has been riding/racing MTB for 4 years learnt so much in just one of Ric’s coaching sessions. The session she took part in was at Hadleigh Park and she is now confident in doing all but 1 of the A lines. She came away from the coaching session so enthusiastic and with a different perspective on racing. In her words she said “I learnt so much why has nobody told me what I was doing wrong and how to correct it before” I would highly recommend to anyone
Thanks for a great weekend Ric !
Thanks to your ground work , I was able to concentrate on both days of racing and the recovery in between. There was very little else for me to worry about.
The hotel was spot on , plenty of quality food to re-fuel on.
Houfalizze and the surrounding area offered some of the sweetest trails that I have ever ridden .
Looking forward to a return trip next year.
Came away from today's coaching knowing i am more confident in my ability to ride my bike fast! The day included taking apart and analyzing technique on sketchy sections of trail and going back to basics to improve on the simple stuff, whilst having a blast on the trails! Definitely would do again.
Big thanks to the Pine Sport Team and Ric Jamieson for helping me with my first participation in the Roc Ardennes UCI Mountain bike marathon.
Great care was taken with every stage of the trip. From the initial planning stages, event entry, transport and booking accommodation through to preparing my bike, checking out the course, planning my race strategy and feeding. This made the whole experience enjoyable and stress free, allowing me to concentrate on my race and soaking up the Belgian atmosphere.
Coach Ric Jamieson worked well with his local contacts and provided a valuable insight into mountain bike training and competition.
Thanks again and I look forward to repeating again in the future
very good sessions, with lots of laughs. would highly recommed. great day, great company and great weather
Pete & Jo are seasoned Cyclo Cross racers but are getting into XC racing so attended the Singletrack Clinic at the last round of the Southern XC and backed it up with a 2hr trail session 4 days later:
Had a 2 hour coaching session with Ric - on XC skills in the Surrey Hills today,
Just so much fun, and Ric’s coaching style of gentle encouragement and hints and tips paid off. Amazing boost in confidence - myself and Jo my partner.
Definitely looking to book further sessions.
