Junior Development Programs

The Head for the Hills Junior Development programs are designed to give young mountain bike riders the skills they need to begin racing, as well as to provide coaching opportunities to help them fine tune their technique and race-craft. Our programs provide support for budding athletes from their first ever race, through the ranks, to the pinnacle of the sport.
