Jumping Mini-clinic

jumping_2Are you ready to take your mountain biking to the the next level, literally?

Learn the fundamentals of jumping your mountain bike in a safe setting with pro rider / mountain bike coach Coach Richard La China.

Class is limited to 10 riders and will take you through a series of progressions that will have you flying high in just a couple hours.

We’ll start with basic wheel lifts, flat hops, bunny hops, tail whips and work our way up to weighting and un-weighting over a jump, practice on small gap jumps, jumps in succession and landing on descents, flat and more.  (All training is done in a controlled grass area on manufactured ramps).

Goal: To have you successfully clear a 4-5 foot gap jump (approximately 2 feet in the air) and land safely and predictably.
