Learning to jump, dealing with fears: video interview with mountain bike coach Elaine Bothe

During the month of Feb, MTB coach Elaine Bothe was our first featured guest expert in my Mountain Bike Skills Network (MTBSN) Facebook Group, focusing on two topics: 1) Fear; 2) Jumps. (See my Feb. 9 blog post for more about Elaine.)

Earlier this month, I conducted a video interview with her. The topics were the same as her online appearance: dealing with fear; and learning to jump. (I goofed on the recording, neglecting to recording the audio of my questions for her so it’s taken me a while to patch things together.)
