MTB Skills Clinic
MTB Foundations: Intermediate
WHO THIS CLINIC IS FOR
You’ve been mountain biking long enough to be comfortable on singletrack trails. You know how to shift and brake and are comfortable at a trail area like Betasso. You’ve either never taken a skills clinic or want a refresher. While this is not a sequel to the Beginner clinic, it would be appropriate to take this class if you’ve taken Beginner and want to reinforce and refine the same skills.
This clinic covers the same fundamental mountain bike skills as MTB Foundations: Beginner but is tailored to intermediate riders. We’ll move through skills at a faster pace and practice on bigger obstacles and features.
