This clinic focuses on the basics of technical mountain biking. We will focus on the broad picture from bike set-up to riding trail with intermediate level technical obstacles. Get ready to ride over more rocks and roots while finding smoother lines in a fun and controlled setting with some of the best coaches on the East Coast.

This is a day clinic with two 3 hour sessions and lunch.
8:1 Student to Coach
What to Bring
– A working, recently tuned up mountain bike
– Your camelback and trail kit with all the cool essentials: tube, hand pump, multi-tool, plug kit, snacks, water, etc.
– Warm Riding Clothes (add an extra layer to your bag for while we session and practice)
Whats the Riding Like?
We’ll start the day making sure your bikes are set up for optimal performance in challenging terrain. We’ll then spend time doing field exercises and drills to work on better body position while tackling obstacles and features you will find on trail. After lunch we will head to the trails to put the morning practice to the test on the legendary trails of Michaux.
Sample topics include, but are not limited to:
- Braking for Confidence
- Riding Obstacles Smoothly
