Is this MTB coaching week for me?
Everybody has their own reasons for wanting to take their riding to the next level. You may be a competitive mountain biker with your eye on some gnarly MTB enduro or XC races.
Getting that competitive edge is important. You know there’s room for improvement in your riding but need expert guidance to help you get to where you want to be.
Or maybe you mountain bike for the sheer pleasure of it, but want to learn how to improve your skills on a variety of natural terrain in order to give your confidence a boost.
In addition to the practical skills coaching you’ll also be given invaluable advice and guidance on bike set up, biking confidence, bike mechanics and useful info on training and recovery.
Practical MTB skills sessions

Efficiency and finding free speed for your chosen bike event
Specific competition drills right for you
|Bunny Hopping – each level will be addressed
Riding obstacles – up, down and all around
Hopping on and off the bike quickly and efficiently
