We’re all probably a little guilty of thinking that new gear purchase is going to make you a much better rider. But coaching? Psssh. We’re way past coaching, right? Wrong. Even the best riders can often benefit from skills coaching, though most of us don’t seek it out on a regular basis.

Trials mountain bike legend Ryan Leech knows this, which is why he’s once again offering a free skills course through the Ryan Leech Connection. The Connection is an online mountain bike skills coaching service that offers skills lessons as well as mental and physical fitness classes to make you a better rider.
