"I’m leaving this review on behalf of my 13 year old daughter. I cannot recommend this course enough for anyone who wants to race or races DH and also people who just want to get from A to B faster and smoother. Olly covers everything from bike setup, major techniques and he even helped her with her breathing. Combined with the uplift it’s just a brilliant day riding and learning on a bike. Even though the weather was pretty bad that day with heavy rain at times when your daughter comes up to you at the end of the day and says “dad that was the best day I’ve had on my bike ever” you know booking her on was a good choice. Thanks again Olly and keep up the good work"
"Great course, Olly is an amazing instructor, whole day is informative and Olly works individually to everyones needs. Brilliant! Do it you won't regret it!"
"Brilliant day great coach Olly learnt so much would recommend anyone to go and have a days fun and experience how much more speed you can get in on your session."
"Awesome day out on the DH speed course. Olly is very informative. Leaned loads over the whole day. And got tons of riding in. Will be booking back on for the air time coaching day for sure. ?"
"Did the DH Speed course with Pro Ride at Cwmcarn yesterday, our coaches were Olly Morris and Charlie Hatton. This was my second coaching session with Olly and his relaxed approach has you at ease straight away and his consistent process soon has you delivering the results. Charlie " the loon " Hatton was brilliant, bringing his own style and experience to the party. This is coaching that I believe will really help me..... cheers guys... was an awesome day."
"Just did DHSPEED yesterday, my 3rd course with Proride. As always Olly has a knack of making you feel comfortable and picking up on the things that really matter. There's no generic, youtube warrior advice here, just effective, real world instruction that is easy to understand and WILL make a difference to your riding. Getting to ride with both Olly and Charlie Hatton is not only a real pleasure but a huge eye opener and, if I'm honest, I'm probably going to do the course again as there is so much more to learn. Cheers guys and hopefully see you soon."
