SKU: 3REVS20 Category:

Bespoke ride coaching, guided bike setup and customised fitness development our Revolution Sessions really are a one stop shop for riders looking to improve ahead of their 2020 riding season.

The Revo Sessions run over two days: Friday focusses on bike setup then Saturday is spent developing flow, confidence and control.

So you’ve got a few extra pounds and enjoy a beer, you don’t have the latest bike and you’ve never really thought about training for riding…

The Revo Sessions are for ANY rider, all we ask for is a love of riding bikes!

The +3 Revo Sessions offer riders the opportunity to take bike setup, coaching and fitness knowledge from the best. Our coaches are in the business of going fast on two wheels and that commitment will be shared with riders joining us at Revolution Bike Park.

World Cup Pedigree

For 2020 we’re bringing racer and coach Matt Simmonds into the fold at +3 and launching into the new year right off the back of his amazing year working with Cannondale to develop their new DH bike. As well as working with +3 riders Matt will be coaching Danny Hart and Matt Walker of Team Madison Saracen throughout their 2020 World Cup Downhill season.

Matt has been working live on the World Cup circuit to gain the most up to date understanding of what a race bike needs to do. Not a bad start…

Dialled Bike Setup

Our bikes have a heap of clicks, pressures, flip chips and all manner of other things that can be adjusted. How do you make sense of all this? The power of the fastest moustache in UK racing! Will Soffe has been with +3 from our first ever event in 2017 and he knows how to setup bikes for each and every rider.

Unsure of how many tokens to run in your fork? Or trying to work out how to get the best from your tyres Will has the answers with unending enthusiasm.

BIKE & SUSPENSION SETUP

Our first job is to dial some base settings into your bike. We’ll allocate each rider with a slot to get your bike looked over with our mechanics.

Will goes through your bike, one-to-one discussing everything you want to focus on (it’s ok if you don’t know, we’ll work it out with you!). If you have settings you have been using then it’s handy to have them with you and we’ll provide a form to fill in prior to the event.

Once a basic check of your bike is complete Will sets, and adjusts if necessary, the sag position of your suspension. With your sag point set we will set your tyre pressures based on your weight, tyre structure and the conditions on the day.

Will checks your whole bike and if there’s something that we think is worth adjusting in the pits we will. Otherwise Will is on the hill to work out what should be changed and is in radio contact with Matt and Alan to note down things he can’t directly witness.

Will measures the stroke of a Fox damper before adjusting it’s pressure to achieve the perfect sag point.

From these numbers we refine your settings and make sure everything is matched to your riding style, we also work through visual setup points.

Handlebar position, brake and shifter angle all play a part as well as any wheelbase or options for head angle changes and bottom bracket height your frame might have.

Noting down your settings and what you want to work on, Will has a starting point for dialling your bike. Every member of the coaching team sees this information and we work together building from a dialled bike setup so you gain the most advantage from ride coaching at fitness input.

We make sure to have all the volume spacers you might need too. We’ll have all the fork and shock tokens you might need and if you’re running coils then we ask riders to bring the spare springs you have.

RIDE COACHING

With dialled bikes and some warm up runs in the bag Matt will take riders through a group of track sections to develop skills. A mixture of demonstrations by himself and Will offer riders the opportunity to see how the fastest riders achieve their line choice.

From body position to braking points, when to pedal and where to pump Matt’s experience of racing World Cup downhill is invaluable. Couple that with his understanding of how a bike behaves for the best outcomes at a particular track you have the perfect cocktail!

” Watching you ride, observing the speed and travel your suspension moves Will focusses on balancing your bike “

Watching you ride, observing the speed your suspension goes through it’s travel and working out what will benefit each rider the coaching team operate as a unit.

Improving the handling of your bike is just the first part of +3’s unique strength, there’s more! Multiple coaches means more eyes looking at different things, simultaneously.

We combine our knowledge so your bike is setup, your body position balanced and you know where fitness improvements can be made. Alan might notice your body position out of shape, it could be the cause or result of your bike setup. A quick chat with Will or Matt, we make adjustments, and the team watch some more.

With a group riding bikes that feel fantastic we have a fun blast down to the pits, bikes locked down with support from Hiplok we send it down to the pits for a healthy lunch and chat about race nutrition from Alan and Matt.
