The Ready Position

The ready position involves positioning oneself to deal with whatever’s ahead. This skill is essential for navigating challenging terrain, and helps to build rider confidence.


Eliminate the feeling of being dragged towards the edge with this skill. Participants will learn how to safely and confidently navigate corners and turns on challenging terrain.


Knowing when and how to use your brakes is key to safely navigating challenging terrain. Participants will learn how to add control with their brakes, not take it away.


Flow is about dealing with common features that threaten your momentum. Participants will learn how to navigate these features confidently and smoothly.

Front Wheel Lifts

Arriving at the top with ease is an essential skill for young mountain bikers. Participants will learn how to safely and confidently climb challenging terrain.
