Get out and RIDE! We will teach you the physical and mental skills on how to ride balanced, efficiently, fast and smooth . We also teach drills for each skill so you can practice after the camp and master these skills, ending the frustration of not riding to your potential. We have designed our mountain bike skills camps to help you with both the mental and physical sides of mountain biking. Our goal is to help you reach your potential by teaching you the core skills of mountain biking along with the drills to master them. Learning and becoming proficient at these skills will allow you to ride in balance and in control making you a more efficient and confident rider.

  • First we teach you the goal of the skill and explain how to do it so you understand the skill, how to do it what it should feel like.
  • Then we demonstrate the skill, so you can see it done and know what it should look like
  • Next we have you practice the skill using drills in a safe learning environment (so you don’t resort to old habits and/or survival instincts) while we encourage and assist you.
  • Once you have a good understanding of the skill and some practice we apply the skill out on the trail
