This camp is for more advanced riders who want to ride more difficult terrain faster and smoother. This includes steep technical climbing, multiple drops on trail, advanced braking techniques, and rock gardens. We’ll introduce a variety of methods to handle terrain at different speeds. The student ratio is lowest for this camp to ensure greater attention to each rider and their specific needs. We will spend more time on the wide variety of technical trails that Michaux has to offer. We highly recommend the Skills Builder Camp before attending, especially if you have never been to Michaux or are not sure which camp is right for you.

Whats the Riding Like?
This camp offering will be expanding on our skill builder camp. There will be more riding and more compound trail scenarios with increased flow in execution. Expect riding distances in excess of 15 miles…..with a lot of focused sessioning on advanced maneuvers, in the form of both features and compound strings of maneuvers. It will be very physically and mentally demanding.
