BetterRide MTB Skills Camp
6/8/2012 – 6/10/2012
Want to have more fun on the trails? Want to be more efficient and mountain bike with more confidence? Still find yourself hoping to make some corners, getting nervous in tight switchbacks or feeling lucky, not skilled after that technical section? Gene Hamilton and the certified BetterRide coaches know how you feel, because they have all been there. Gene was held back in his professional racing career by the same fears and lack of proper technique that most riders experience. But that was before BetterRide…
Gene has designed a comprehensive skills training program that continues to prove itself as the best in the US. BetterRide coaching sessions will help you with both the mental and physical sides of mountain biking. The goal is to help you reach your potential by teaching you the core skills of mountain biking and the drills to master these skills. These are the non-intuitive skills that keep mountain bikers of all levels from reaching their potential. Learning and becoming proficient at these skills will allow you to ride in balance and in control making you a more efficient and confident rider.
Starting in a safe learning environment we explain then demonstrate the skill and have you practice the skill utilizing drills that you will continue to use long after the camp. Once you understand the skills we then apply them on the trail. At BetterRide Gene and his coaches truly enjoy helping riders progress and would love to share these techniques and the drills for practicing, getting good at and eventually mastering these techniques with you. This is the most fun and informative mountain bike school you will ever attend!
