Core Techniques Course


Core Techniques Course – 1 Day

These movement and bike handling skills are the foundation on which complex skills are learnt. This is not a ‘beginners’ course. During the course we will set exercises at a suitable level of challenge for each rider, focusing on the most important elements for the individual.

These are some of the areas that are covered

  • Weight shift – manipulating your body position and contact points to negotiate trail features
  • Spatial awareness – being aware of the trail ahead of you and how your bike and body will move through it
  • Cornering
  • Braking & grip
  • Pedalling and gearing
  • Bike setup – Suspension, Tyre Pressures, Bike Fit.
