      This has been my first year of riding singletrack on a regular basis and started without really having any skills prior. Over the course of the spring and summer I have greatly improved my riding in the way of technical skills and descending. I have seen some improvement in my climbing as well but not nearly what I was expecting to, and sometimes I feel like I’m getting worse. But I keep busting em out. So is there something I’m doing wrong or is there a better way to train for the climbs?

      It would be hard to really tell you what you need to work on, not having ridden with you and seen how you ride. I do have a couple handy links to pass along:

      Also, fitness is key. I put in miles on my road bike, it has really helped with my fitness for climbing on my mountain bike.
