COVID-19

We value your business and know how much you want to get out and improve your mountain biking skills. We want to get out and ride with you, too! The safety of our participants and instructors is of utmost importance to us and we are working diligently to maintain the best course of action.

Clinic Precautions

All of our clinics across the country are following local guidelines for COVID-19 (including any orders regarding face coverings, social distancing, group size restrictions, etc.). In addition, our instructors have been educated on industry standard COVID-19 guidelines as published by BICP and PMBIA. We ask that participants be informed as to any local COVID-19 restrictions that may apply to travel to and from the event. Lastly, we require the following of both participants and instructors:

  • If you are sick, stay home.
  • Please have a face cover accessible on you or in your pack (E.g. mask, bandana, buff) for any circumstance where a 6 foot distance can not be maintained (first aid scenarios, check-in, taking shelter from rain, etc.)
  • We recommend carrying a small bottle of hand sanitizer in your pack.

Discounted Event Insurance

As we navigate through these uncertain times, we have made changes to our policies to better support you, our customer. Event insurance is available to purchase at a discounted rate at checkout. This will give you the ability to cancel your registration up to 48 hours before your event, for any reason, and still receive a full transfer credit to any upcoming event of the same type at any point in the future.

Event Changes

We are working hard to run our events as scheduled and doing everything in our power to avoid last minute changes. Because of ever changing restrictions, court rulings and phased openings related to COVID19, we may need to make last minute event changes, and in some circumstances, we may need to postpone events. We are in regular communication with our park and permitting contacts and are doing everything we can to responsibly get out on the trails with you. We will email and text registered participants with any changes to events, should they arise.

In the event we postpone an event as a result of COVID-19, all event participants will receive a full transfer credit that can be used to attend a future Ninja clinic of the same type at any of our 40+ clinic locations across the country. Transfer credits will never expire and if you purchased the event insurance with your initial order, this coverage will automatically carry over to your transfer.

I had a great time at a 3 day camp in Big Bear, CA and my brain is still swelling with knowledge one month later. Not knowing what to expect, I was pleased with the professionalism and detail that Richard and his team brought to camp. They not only take the time to teach you great MTB skills, but when and why you should use them. They begin with the fundamentals skills and reinforce those skills throughout the camp, which I found quite helpful. The skills progress quickly and we covered a lot of ground in three days. I was able to do a few skills I had never really tried before by the end of camp. I recommend highly and plan to attend another camp in the future. ~Joey W.

Completed his longest event ever! (2015) High Cascades 100 100 miles, 10,600' of climbing on 80% single track. Never in my wildest imagination did I envision myself competing in a 100 mile mountain bike endurance race, but with Richard’s Coaching, my dream became a reality! After establishing my baselines, (current fitness level and experience), Richard developed a personalized program which worked for my situation, inclusive of nutrition planning and weekly schedules. His use of Training Peaks, which is a program that captures ride data from Garmin and nutrition information from My Fitness Pal, Richard was able to monitor and analyze with great detail my activity. With this up to date information, Richard adjusted my riding frequency levels and intensity to match the kind of week I was having.  With less than six months of training, Richard provided me with the tools, confidence and encouragement to not only finish the High Cascade 100 in Bend Oregon, but to do so feeling strong, (the last 20 miles were my best).  Can’t even imagine accomplishing this feat without Coach Richard guidance. ~Eric Knowles

1st Place Masters Open Enduro (2015) USAC National Championship 1st Place Cat 2 Downhill (2015) USAC National Championship 3rd Place Overall (2015) SoCal Enduro / Kenda Cup Cat 2 XC Upgrade Approved 7/2014 USA National Championship Winner Cat 3 XC (2014) 2nd Place Series Overall US / Kenda Cup XC (2014) It's been a helluva 'ride', literally, mostly out of control with my bike in the driver's seat. Without sounding absolutely cliché, I would not know what to do with myself without Coach Richard La China. I mean, I am, of course, naturally awesome to begin with. But hiring a cycling coach means a lot more than buying a personalized training plan. I need the accountability and objectivity that no amount of personal education or scientific insight can provide. I've tried, even with a BS in Exercise Science, I can't have a job and keep up with all the data and gobbledegook feedback to plan my next workout. Plus I can rationalize like it's no one's business - walked into a spiderweb, cardio is done for the day! And, let's face it, I'm naturally a goofball and inherantly a lazy-ass. I'd watch Redbull TV all the live-long day if I didn't have to report my workout to someone. I'll always have a coach, even if it means giving up my Range Rover. Ok, that's a lie, but I'd for sure give up my XC bike if needed.  ~Paula Evenson

I've been a recreational mountain bike rider for a few years, and have been riding on single track, but never had any formal training. I just finished the weekend skills course in Irvine, CA with Richard, Randy and Daniel as the instructors. They are excellent instructors breaking every fundamental skill down, demonstrating the skill and then evaluating your practice runs with constructive criticism before applying the skills on the trails. Even though I have been riding single track for a few years, I quickly found out that I have been doing many things if not everything wrong, which means the people I ride with are doing it wrong too. Richard, Randy and Daniel are very patient and professional encouraging every student no matter what the age or gender (our class had males and females from late 20s to late 50s). They went over everything from bike set up, basic position, turning, high speed cornering, wheels lifts to you name it. If you have a desire to improve your skill then Ninja Mountain Bike Performance are the team to go to! I highly recommend their skills camps, and plan on attending more of their camps in the future. ~Kyle Kimm
