It was an awesome day i learnt so much I hit jumps I would not have imagined myself doing and was able to ride corners and switchbacks so much smoother and faster. Max is a really nice guy who would not expect you to do things and would encourage you.
Huge Thanks Max, Tom

Max is a fantastic coach,very knowledgable.
I have had 1-2-1 coaching by Max for Downhill mountain biking at hamsterly forest. I have also attended one of his Downhill skills days also at hamsterly forest. Max's knowledge of hamsterly forest allow him to coach progressively for your needs and experience, combine that with his skill and coaching ability and you are gauranteed a great day. On a more personal note max has helped me an unbelievable amount and has brought my level of riding from beginner to a very confident rider able to tackle most downhill terrain now with ease. Can not recommend him enough, his coaching is worth every penny in my opinion :)
Bad Points
Absolutely no bad points, was 100% satisfied with both sessions i have had with Max :)

Max, is a brilliant instructor. This is the second time I have used him, on both occasions for the downhill course at Hamsterley. His instruction is clear, easy to follow and fun. He is extremely knowledgable and has the ability to break everything down into manageable chunks and demonstrate everything. His tuition is relaxed, informative and most of all fun. Book him you will not be disappointed.

had an amazing day with coaching with max. he's a great guy to get on with and an even better coach. Does his best to tell you where you're going wrong and will do his up most best to help you until you do it right! the course was fun and enjoyable and we covered everything from drops to jumps to berms to body position. I could tell by the end of the day i was a better rider and by watching everybody else i could see they all were too. I heard everybody in the group say they would recommend the course to anyone, that speaks for itself. if you want to improve your riding then do this course. thanks

I signed up for a skills session with Max ahead of my first race of the year. It was brilliant! The day started with Max assessing our basic skills before moving on to looking at drops, berms, technical sections, speed, flow and jumps. There was something for everyone. With a group of riders with different learning styles, Max approach to coaching catered for everybody with great demonstrations and then calm, helpful guidance before, throughout and after. Rather than just telling you what to do he encouraged you to self-assess how you rode different sections straight after you had done them - a vital skill to enable you to take the learning home with you and build on it. I would definitely recommend a coaching session with Max and being located at Descend Hamsterley adds further value to what Max has to offer! I finished the day on an absolute high, with my basic skills polished up and new skills in place - I cleared my first double! Thanks a lot Max!

I'm always doubt when people say 5 out of 5 but....I didn't know what to expect from today. I've been XC for a few years and got into DH in the past couple of years, but have done full DH runs this year. Hence the reason for taking the course, as I thought it would be at best a confidence builder. What I ended up with is jumping further, I cleared the table top of the first time today and I was jumping further of the 4X, so that was the visible evidence of my improvement today, but along side that is my body position that has changed (for the better), my improvement in corners, which improves my own belief and how to control my bike in general. I did want to do the drop of doom, but Max nor Dan said that I could do it, but didn't pressure me into doing it, which I didn't. The reason why I tell this is because its not only the improves which I feel the need to share, but its also the fact that I didn't a lesser person by saying I don't feel confident to do that. Basically, if you feel the need to improve your confidence and your riding ability, take this course. It's chilled out and enjoyable :)

Myself and 2 mates did a full day of coaching. We really enjoyed it and left focused on what needed to be changed.

Max is a really nice guy and is very patient when things need doing over and over to get them right.

Patient
We got asked what we wanted to do and could repeat as much as we wanted
Got to apply the skills on a trip round the black route
Got shown some unmapped routes
Bad Points
Not specific training areas, utilising the black route. This didnt cause much of a problem really but its the closest thing to a bad point.

My self and my friend are both mature riders and we contacted Max for a two to one training day to increase or skills and confidence , Max took the time to instruct both of us individually at our own pace which meant we never felt pressurised or intimidated by the obstacles we tackled at any time. Max had me riding faster, jumping higher and further, popping over trail obsticles and railing corners like I had never done before and more importently I was so relaxed and confident that I found myself actually enjoying the runs and having fun instead of being in survival mode and feeling lucky to arrive at the bottom in one piece as was the case previously. I would thoroughly recommend endeavour coaching for anyone of any ability , Max is a brilliant coach with great teaching skills and a great guy to know which makes the day so enjoyable and a fun way to learn. I personally can't wait to get back up to Hamsterley for another session with Max to take my riding to the next level.

I enjoyed every part of this day, Max is a great lad to get on with, this makes it easier to learn from him. He shows you what to do, then why you do it he will watch (record) you then play back and show you where you went wrong and how to improve. also set up with bike, had loads of fun and was jumping further and doing bigger drops then I would normally try, and landing smooth. also by changing my riding position gives so much more control. I would highly recommend Max as a coach he has helped me with confidence and gave me things to work on in my future rides. another thing food is so cheap and nice at the cabin in the car park.
