 MTB SKILLS Finale is run by Gabby Molloy, founder of the renound MTB Skills Clinics in New Zealand in 2004. Over the past twenty years she has taught over 6000 people from all over the world and in-between raced many National and International races including DH World Cups, Enduro World Series races, World Champs and Oceania Champs.

Now based in Finale Ligure with her husband Matteo Nati and their son Noah, she offers lessons and guiding for all levels of mountainbiker's - Beginners right through to advanced/racers.




Looking to concentrate on your riding and make the most of your lesson, book a One on One with Gabby.

This lesson is comprised of breaking down your riding to the foundation and putting it back together again, we start out in the open on gravel roads and easy tracks doing drills and sessioning sections to hone technique then later apply it to suitable tracks.





Get a group together (or even just two of you) and arrange a private lesson with Gabby or check dates for Group sessions.

This lesson is comprised of breaking down your riding to the foundation and putting it back together again, it is mainly spent out in the open on gravel roads and easy tracks doing drills and sessioning sections to hone technique.





Single Uplift Guided MTB Tour with lesson

If you're not sure about committing a whole or half day to a lesson, why not try the Single Uplift guided Tour. In this way you can ask questions about cornering, braking, riding steep dropping corners etc, and get technique or bike set-up advice without it cutting into your day of riding. Not only will you finish the day stoked on the insanely good trails you will have ridden, but you will be going faster and safer, and have a whole bunch of new SKILLS tricks to take home with you and use forever.





We can arrange WEEKENDS and CAMPS that include Coaching, Accomodation in our Apartment onsite, Bike Servicing, Telemetry Suspension Testing and shuttles.

 What to expect:

The coaching session offers premium Technical Skills Training taking the rider through bike set-up, bike positioning, braking, cornering, steep descents, roots/rocks/steps, pumping and optional discussion around jumping. These techniques have been refined over 20 years of coaching all ages and abilities of mountainbikers the world over.

Regular results consist of rider changing from being the slowest in their group to the fastest - unless the whole group attends the lesson! or the most scary tracks become the rider's favourites, rider feels safe, in control and confident in all situations, hence... they can go faster.

This is a tried and true method that makes sense across ALL terrain so it's easy to remember. Rather than "do this in corners", and "do this technique on a steep chute", whereby you end up having the problem of what to do if you have a steep chute WITH a corner in it. At MTB SKILLS Finale the method or basic platform is always the same.


Problems that will be resolved;

*You feel like you need to brake, lose speed or will wash out in corners

*Experience difficulty in steep or slippery chutes/ruts

*You are scared of going over the handlebars

*Want to go faster in control or are looking to improve your race-craft

*You find slippery roots, gravel, mud, rocks scary or difficult

*Feels unpredictable whether the bike will kick or not on drops or jumps

*Why and how to pump

We look at all of the above and more, using a systematic, easy to understand method that works on all terrains.






What our customers say

After two days of getting my ass kicked on my first visit to Finale I was relieved to spend the day with Gabby regaining a bit of confidence. She was patient, encouraging and a joy to spend the day with. It’s clear that she’s been teaching for many years as she decoded after only a short pedal several specific and actionable manoeuvres that I needed to work on in order to improve my riding style and find a measure of success on the trails.

She truly saved my MTB trip to Italy and I would encourage anyone-regardless of skill- to consider her for a coach or as a guide. She’s extremely knowledgeable with regard to the trail systems. She’s an ex pro and clearly a proficient rider, but more importantly (to some) she can teach in a language that is easy to understand and to practice.

Gabby clearly crushes but she’s also an absolute gem of a human being.

Today was 10/10. My expectations were high, but the session was over the stars!! You made the hard and tough trails feel like nothing. I'm amazed by how breaking everything in to small details and just with these small adjustments I'm now experiencing a whole new type of riding, without getting tired. Everyone should book a session with you ASAP!


- Clara Langner - Sweden

Having never been to Finale, I was nervous about taking my daughters aged 12 & 13 out riding without knowing the trails.

At the top of the uplift drop-off, Gabby went through braking & cornering skills exercises with us and tweaked our bikes. The changes to the bikes and tips helped immediately. Our bike control was pretty much transformed.

The day was excellent and the trail was perfect. It was fun and challenged our ability just the right amount. Thank you, Gabby for a really fun and rewarding day!

Three years ago I had an accident while biking. Afterwards I was unsure when driving and had really troubles with technical trails. Gabby helped me feel safer and gave me lots of tips to be stable on the bike again. Thank you so much! Had so much fun with you! I would recommend a tour with Gabby to everyone.

"Thanks for Saturday. Wish I had done it years ago. Loved being on a learning path again and congrats on the course. You guys have a good thing going on. Went for a ride on Sunday around local tracks and found that a real eye opener applying new techniques. I think I have been trying to muscle the bike around for years. Created a real hunger to learn more."


- Kelvin McArthur - New Zealand

Retuning from a fantastic 3 days riding with Gabby in Finale. Our main aim was guiding our 6 Yr old son, however Gabby gave us far more that. She gave my husband and I personalised and useful riding tips as well as bike adjustments to really enhance our riding. In general Gabby was helpful, informative, flexible and relaxed and made our week in Finale all the more enjoyable. Thank you so much and we look forward to our next visit. M & J


- Miriam Howard - Switzerland

Game changer. Was a fun and rewarding half day lesson. Gabby is an amazing coach. Came away with some really solid fundamentals to work on and she was able pick up on some specific adjustments that I can make to drastically improve my riding. Was already feeling the distance when we hit the single track. Amazing value for half day of personal coaching. Highly recommend for both beginners and seasoned riders


- Adam Taylor - United States

What a great day with Gabby. Cornering, descending steep stuff, handling rock gardens. All so well explained and plenty of time for sessioning to get it right. Videos provided showed the progress. Definitely worth doing.
