small web size USFS permit logoWe’ll teach you the ins and outs of the course, where to rest, where to dig deep, where the aid stations will be, and how to finish this demanding race.  These training rides are for the first time Leadville rider or for experienced Leadville riders who want to finish with a faster time and win a bigger belt buckle.   Pro Rider, Richard La China, and other experienced coaches will share their lessons learned on this course and give you a toolbox of skills and tips that help prepare you for the big event.

We will stick to a rigid schedule with specific details to help riders prepare for the annual August race.  We will start these rides early, both to simulate the actual race start and to complete our ride before the afternoon thunderstorms descend upon the high country.

Riders will need to be prepared for the high country by carrying proper clothing, food, tools and any other items to successfully complete a several hour strenuous, high altitude ride. You will be given a mandatory and recommended list of items when you book this training ride.

Day 1 – Leadville to the Pipeline Aid Station and Back

Our first training ride day is Leadville to Pipeline Aid Station and Back, roughly 56 miles covering the initial sections of the course which wind through Saint Kevin’s climb, Sugarloaf and the Powerline. We will turn around at the Pipeline Aid Station and power up the infamous Powerline climb, back through St. Kevins and  finish the ride on the Boulevard back to downtown Leadville.

Day 2 – Twin Lakes Dam to Columbine Mine, then out to Pipeline Aid Station and back to Twin Lakes Dam

We start this day with the hard part first.  We park at the Twin Lakes Dam Aid Station location.  Ride out the course to the top Columbine Mine Aid Station.  Turn around head back to our parking spot.  Top off our hydration and then ride the course in it’s return direction to the Pipeline Aid Station.  Turn around and back to Twin Lakes.  This way we give ourselves the best chance of beating the thunderstorms up at the Columbine Mine turn around and provide a midway refueling point for the days ride.  The climbing to almost 13,000 feet is the important part of this one.

The intermediate and advanced clinic was very helpful and effective. Easy to follow, a lot of information but somehow I was able to retain it. I think because the instructors present it well. It was very professional and at the same time really fun! ~ Karen B.  

I definitely recommend and will do again!

I was able to participate in the Sedona 2 day skills camp this past weekend run by Richard and his team and I was absolutely blown away with the outstanding quality and attention given to me to help improve my riding and skills. Richard is a class act and not only has a wonderful ability to teach and instill you with confidence but also keep you humble so you stay safe and don't tackle a skill your not yet ready to conquer. I will no doubt soon be looking to attend my next Ninja camp so I can continue to take my riding to the Ninja level !!! ~Chance Bex

I took the fundamentals  1/2 day works shop in Orange County this weekend and l learned way more than I thought possible.  Richard and his team of instructor reinforced all the information with practical application on the mountain.  Thus, I was able to put these new skills to practice immediately after the workshop with a post workshop ride and a follow up ride today.  I feel more confident and safe to try more technical routes now.  I have already signed up for a intermediate/advanced workshop and recruited 3 friends to joint me! ~Eric R.

I love love love Ninja mountain bike clinics. I had the opportunity to take part in the 2 day clinic on the Kingdom Trails in Burke, Vermont with Patrick Howell. Truly, the best days on my bike ever, I jumped AND landed and have the video to prove it! 😊  I can’t get over my learning curve and special bonus that my 10 year old thinks I’m a rock star because I can jump 5 feet! I felt safely challenged and completely encouraged by Patrick and his assistants for the weekend. This was the second Ninja event for our family this summer, the first was a half-day for my son. I’ll tell you what, if the Ninja’s are in your town or close enough to access, sign up! My cheeks still hurt from smiling so much  Thanks Ninjas and Patrick  💕 Maggie Hooker Vermont

I participated in the beginner skill clinic at Malibu Creek last Saturday, because I'm truly a beginner who couldn't stop falling down during each mtb ride. The class was small and super fun...and the instructors (Richard and Kris) were informative and dynamic. The clinic was small enough for each member to practice each learned skill and receive immediate feedback. I learned many new skills on that day and felt much more confident with my bike-body connection. I felt so confident that I recently signed up for the Catalina MTB Gran Fondo...the 55 mile route! Woohooo!! The next day, as I was road biking (training for the Solvang Double Century), I dodged a bullet on the Snake/Mulholland by applying my learned mtb skills--a long towing truck went over almost half of our lane on a blind turn as we were descending. Instead of fixating on the truck, I remembered the importance of looking for a clear path and keeping my eyes on where I want to go....Now I understand what people meant when they said that mtb will help improve my road riding skills too! I'm grateful for the opportunity to learn, and I look forward to the next clinic! ~ Uyen N.  

Great clinic. I learned really useful skills.

Great clinic. I learned really useful skills… I’m ready for another clinic with more challenging terrain. ~Beatrice D.
