Women's Group Skills Clinics

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:

IMG_0347.jpg

"I was a trainer for 20 years and worked with many clients. She has a gift."

 

- Susan T. from Denver, CO

About our clinics and what makes us different:

  • All of our clinics are taught by women instructors and are women specific in nature.

  • We focus on "micro skills".  

  • Mountain bike skills are not just a few separate actions, but rather a set of actions, all working in harmony with one another.

  • Many clinics focus on too many things at once, leaving riders feeling overwhelmed and wondering what they actually learned.

  • With our clinics, we focus on solidifying one skill at a time and emphasize allowing adequate time for development.

  • Our clinics are always capped at smaller attendance to assure a more "private lesson" feel.

  • All clinics are women-only for more camaraderie and fun among attendees!

 

CLINICS OFFERED:

LEVEL 1: Suspension/Braking/Cornering/Hill Starts

LEVEL 2: Balance/Bike Body Separation/Faster Cornering/Riding DOWN Rocky Sections

LEVEL 3: Improved Balance/Small to Medium Drops/Step-Ups

 

LEVEL 4: MORE Balance/Downhill Rock Gardens

LEVEL 5: UPHILL SKILLS IMPROVEMENT- Bigger Step-ups/Longer Uphill Rocks Sections

(some food for thought: uphill MTB skills are more heavily dependent on fitness, specifically "higher-end" fitness, which includes improving your body's ability to tolerate lactic acid buildup, i.e.: "the burn")

CLINICS ALSO OFFERED THROUGHOUT THE SEASON AT VARIOUS TRAILS IN THE FRONT RANGE.

SHOOT ME A MESSAGE IF YOU HAVE AN IDEA FOR ONE AND WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO MAKE IT HAPPEN!

Look for more clinic dates and more opportunity to take the levels in proper succession in 2021.
