Event Description

INTERMEDIATE / ADVANCED SKILLS CLINIC [FULL DAY] Looking to tackle technical terrain?  Ready to add confidence to your riding? Want to exit a corner with speed? The Intermediate / Advances clinic takes a deep dive into high speed cornering techniques including proper bike-body separation, footwork, pressure control, types of corners and tips and tricks for keeping those corner smooth and fast. Your Ninja instructor will walk you through a series of drills and progressions to help you build up proper cornering techniques and set you up with an entirely new understanding of all that’s possible in a corner. In addition, you’ll learn how to ride drops, skills for technical climbing and descending, how to pump for speed and more! From there, take your skills to the trail for a coached ride and opportunity to ride advanced features with tips and feedback from your instructor. Leave this clinic ready to tackle rougher terrain and corners with greater speed and control.  Negotiate bigger trail obstacles and drops with commitment! The Intermediate/Advanced clinic builds upon the 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 racecourse.  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.
