Riders, do you want to progress more efficiently?
Coaches, do you want to be better riders?
In this episode, we unpack the saying “slow is smooth and smooth is fast” in the context of coaching and riding to unlock some ideas to improve performance.
In this episode we discuss:
· Possible origins of this saying
· Racing as measurement of percentages
· Riding at speed might not mean riding at 100%
· Slowing down to dial in specific performance goals
· The purpose of practice
· Skills vs techniques
· Applying slow is smooth to coaching
· Going fast vs rushing
· The mental side of being smooth
· Measuring success
· The secrets of going fast – timing and coordination
· Speeding up decision making
· How to ride at 100%
