About the event
We learn to move separately from the bike and how to direct the bike with speed and our hips (whhhHHhoOoaa). This leads to fast corners and better bike control. Rooty trails and curbs will be conquered by learning to use our fancy suspension
and jumps will be jumped by learning that speed… is… our…. Friend! Climbing and descending switchbacks will be worked on and the skills to tackle these challenging trail features will be practiced and conquered! We will have our SheShreds stunts along with us to work on roll downs (where the trail dops away) in progressive steps to get you feeling confident.
This clinic is appropriate for riders who have experience on their mountain bikes, but are looking for a challenge to improve their skills and bike handling while getting faster! Generally experienced intermediates. In order to progress to bigger stunts, you will need to get the go-ahead from our coaches.
