Intermediate 'Fast Track' One day Mountain Bike Skills Clinic
Our intermediate 'Fast Track' mtb skills one day clinic is aimed at those riders who can't get to the weekly sessions of our 5 week programs. This 'slimline' version of the 5 week program provides the core skills a rider needs to step it up from being caught somewhere between a beginner and a competent, confident intermediate rider.
Riders this one day clinic suits probably already ride many of the basic obstacles and features on country cross trails, but now want to take on some the technical challenges that evade them and gain more speed and flow on the trails. This clinic takes the skills you learn as a beginner and introduces new and intermediate/advanced skills to improve your riding overall.
- NOTE 1: Unlike the 5 week program, there is less time to practice each skill. The aim is to demonstrate and allow enough practice time for students to take away the fundamentals they need to continue to practice each skill.
- NOTE 2: Although your mountain bike can be entry level, it is required that your bike is fitted with mountain bike tyres and not touring/semi-slick tyres. If you are unsure, please ask us.
What will I learn?
Sessions within our intermediate 'Fast Track' mtb skills one day clinic, will continue to educate you on everything riding, including skills helpful in racing and general mountain biking.
Skills learned will include the following and more.
- Cornering - stable seated and advanced cornering
- Front wheel lifting
- Introduction to jumping
- Bike Handling for more flow and stability
Is this program for me?
“I would just like to learn how to hop over obstacles properly.”
“Can't work out how to take corners faster.”
“I already ride well but I’m not really getting better.”
“My riding friends are all better than I am.”
“I can ride ok but struggle when trails point down over rocks.”
If any of these statements sound like you then perhaps this group program is for you.
