Good info, Katy is also a damn fine MTB rider so makes sense.I heard somewhere that she was also helped by Katy Curd.
"I got into cycling late, so for me the emphasis was always to build fitness, but it gets to the stage where fitness is not enough. You need to have that technical ability. Last year, I was riding at the Forest of Dean and I saw Katy Curd go off a drop. I just went up and said, "Please teach me how to do that!", and since then she's been my technical coach. I feel more confident descending, and even little things transfer to cross – whether it's cornering, carrying speed or riding in ruts."
