More about our Intermediate / Advance clinic:

Looking for an improvement in your technical riding, a little more speed and a boost in your riding confidence?  You’ve come to the right place!  Leave this clinic ready to tackle rougher terrain and corners with greater speed and control, negotiate bigger trail obstacles and drops with commitment.  You will also gain a boost in speed on flowing singletrack, switchbacks, berms; all achieved with less pedaling and better use of the trails natural features.  It’s all about the flow!

The Int/Adv clinic builds upon your fundamentals and gives you a full toolbox of mountain bike skills that you can apply to any terrain, in any location, and in any conditions; be it a gnarly backcountry trail or your local race course.  This full-day clinic also looks closely at the key elements to finding your flow and builds upon your existing foundation to improve your trail speed and energy management.
