Private Introduction Course
Intro: The starting point in your MTB Life.
This course is designed for riders who are either new to Mountain Biking or someone who is used to flatter/smoother tracks and looking for those extra skills for rougher terrain.
Bike Check: We will ensure your bike is setup for maximum performance and advise where necessary for repair or replacement. This will aid in your confidence and progression during your course sessions.
A break down on the “How’s & Why’s” of Body Positioning, times have changed and so have the bikes!
We will also cover the importance of flexibility, core strength and focus.
Once you and your bike are setup and ready we will move to Balance. Using our techniques and fun Balance Games you will soon get to grips with how much you can move on your bike. Finding balance points on all axis allows you the ability to explore your bike’s potential.
Before we can go fast we need to learn to stop! Here we will teach you braking techniques that will increase your confidence and actually allow you to ride faster.
Learn the art of “weighting” and “unweighting” and you will soon be on your way to getting air between your tyres and the ground. That’s not all, Pumping is one of the Core Skills used in other techniques. Master this technique now and progression will flow quickly.
In this part of the course we focus on “finding the curve”.
Cornering, when done properly, looks and sounds incredible. We will focus on: Body Position, Braking, Maintaining Traction/Speed and Flow.
