This women’s mountain biking coaching week takes place in the beautiful environment of the Pyrenees mountains of SW France. If you are an enthusiastic intermediate level mountain biker, keen to make significant improvements in your mountain biking then this MTB training week is for you.
Why should I book this MTB coaching week?
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 X races later in the year. Getting that competitive edge is important to you and you need to dial in your nutrition and race psychology.
Or you could just ride your mountain bike for the pleasure of it but want to learn how to improve your endurance for longer rides or to nail the skills you need to tackle the trail centre black runs.
What can I expect on this women’s MTB training camp?
This comprehensive women’s MTB coaching week will include a combination of tailor-made classroom seminars as well as practical ‘on the bike’ sessions to get you to where you want to be.
Practical MTB training sessions and classroom seminars will be tailormade to what you want to get out of them. You won’t find many womens mtb training courses that have this degree of flexibility!
