Things are different now. When a problem presents itself, the process of identifying the problem through research—and then deciding if it is coachable or not—is put to the test and the solution presented to our 74 qualified coaches worldwide. We can then apply the solution to thousands of riders. Rider coaching is something that many riders at all levels seek out in order to gain confidence, improve skills, and take their sport to the next level. Those who don’t are limiting their potential. Fortunately, there has been a strong cultural shift toward accepting outside instruction. It’s taken awhile, but we’re past the “I’ll figure it out on my own” phase, at least for most riders.
