Ant is a passionate mountainbiker who has dedicated his training and education to athlete development with Mountain Biking being his main focus.

Staying true to the ALine roots Ant is a veteran of Whistler Bike Park where he undertook his initial guiding and skill development training. Whilst in Whistler Ant specialised in kids camps ...... hint hint.

Ant has been working with the team in the background for a couple of months and we are stoked. We think you will be also.

A Graduate in sports science from Sheffield Hallam University Ant went on to a dedicated and integral member of the BlueSteel SnC team who specialise in strength and conditioning with a keen interest in mountain bike specific training. With BlueSteel Ant has been lucky enough to work with some of top performing DH athletes in the world.

With Dr Gareth Jones bringing his sports psychology and now Ant Henry with his body and strength mechanics, we are building a strong team of professionals to help you get where you want to go. 

Is it mental? or is it physical? we find the two are generally linked but either way, we have got you covered.

 

Thanks again

The White Rhino - Steel City Prize Winner

Look up enduro in the dictionary, it says Lee Hawden.

One of the nicest guys on the planet, possibly the strongest MTBer I know (hence his nick name white rhino), trains super hard while balancing his full time job as teacher. Last year he came 4th in the Steel City Race and as such won a session with ALine Coaching.

One second would have put him into 2nd place. Theres a good chance we found it! #FreeSpeed #EconomyOfMotion #TouchingBacksides

 

Keep an eye out for Lee and his new Kingdon Switch at the Steel City Race this year. Say hello, wish him luck touching those backsides!

Join The Revolution - February

Februarys Join The Revolution was another great success as riders took the step into some of the most fun terrain in the uk.

Generally the home of the DH elite, with support from ALine coaching Revolution Bike Park is a fantastic place for riders looking to take those first steps into advanced terrain. On our Join The Revolution course, we give riders time, space and the support to make the most of their "Revolution" experience.

After the group have settled in, we sometimes get the camera out! 

It was the sickest, gnarliest and most incredible day I’ve ever had on two wheels. I progressed more in one day than I have in one year. I’ll be back to conquer banana skin corner!

After my first run down Revolution I thought I’d made a mistake, this place has some serious steep and technical trails. But by the end of the day and some expert advice and encouragement from ALine Coaching Revolution is now my favourite place to ride. Thanks to ALine and thanks to Revolution I will be back
— Experienced rider new to DH - Scott Goodwin
Had an awesome day riding some proper downhills with a good group of people. Felt pretty confident on the rough stuff and it was great to finally ride banana skin corner, generally a pretty RAD day
— Young up and coming DH racer - Aidan Mallon
This is the second Join The Revolution course I have done. This the first time on my trail bike. Really pleased with the bike and stoked for technical XC racing with my team (Cannondale Girls) in 2016.

Our next course is on the 24th of March.

Bontrager flash charger - Bike Garage

So all you tubeless lovers will be familiar with the pump dance of desperately trying to get enough air into your tyre to make it seal and joy of using an air compressor to get these things on! Well Bontrager have developed the flash charger so you can build up pressure and then release as one larger charge! Great stuff.

We could have tested it on the usual stuff but we decided to try it on an unsupported inner tube. We also tried it on a syringe. All in the name of science.

Warning! This is a bit silly.

Retails at £100.00 which make me squirm a little but if you love running tubeless you will know this is priceless!. Bike Garage

Im not been completely taken by tubeless yet, when they go, I have to put in a tube anyway and I would only revert back to tubeless if I was putting on a new tyre. Does that mean Im just lazy?

Any one on here love tubeless?

Anyone used the Flash Charger ?

Anyone got any other great new ways we can use it?
