Technique Development Course

Learn the technical skills of mountain biking and take steps to increase speed and control on flowy trails, as well over rough and rugged terrain. This course builds upon our Base Skills program by further developing your understanding of basic skills as well as introducing you to new skills and techniques. We assume riders have completed the Base Skills program and are familiar with the concepts and terminology it contains.

There are two sessions in the course, one focusing on trail skills and the other on descending skills. You can book each session separately or as a package.
