Fundamentals Clinics

Maybe you’re completely new to mountain biking, or perhaps a little more experienced, but you’ve never been taught the fundamentals of riding off-road?

Possibly you’ve tried some technical trails, but lacked confidence and scared yourself a few times? Our Fundamentals Clinics will give you the core skills to get out in the woods tackling technical trails with confidence and commitment.

Following training you will see an immediate improvement in your riding and a boost in confidence. You’ll understand how changes in your body position, footwork and where you are looking affect the way your bike behaves on single track trails. You’ll be able to tackle steeper terrain, corner with greater control and negotiate small trail obstacles with ease.

Here’s What We’ll Cover

The skills taught and practiced in Fundamentals Clinics include:

  • Mind skills
  • The Ready Position
  • Dynamic weight shift
  • Effective braking
  • Negotiating trail obstacles
