DETAILED INFO

IS IT FOR ME?

The level of riding is a step up from our U18’s Trail course so you need to be a solid rider to enjoy this course. Fitness will also play a part in being able to enjoy and learn throughout the week. If you have any questions about your suitability then please just pick up the phone and give us a call. Our aim is to get you ready to ride anything you want – better, smother and faster.

CONTENT

5 days of coaching on a variety of trails and in different environments will prepare you for all that is out there for riders. Whether in this country or abroad.

We will look at the core elements to make sure that you have a good foundation to work with but the main idea is to work on more technical trails throughout that reflect the current riding scene.

This will include a great mix of man-made and wild trails. Both local and within a short drive.

We will also discuss / introduce how to prepare for taking part in Enduro, XC, Downhill or Endurance races and events. These are becoming ever popular and numbers are on the up – especially for Enduro. They are great to take part in and you might surprise yourself and even podium!
