Intermediate Skills Training

Ever wonder how some riders rail corners, traverse steep terrain and seem to overcome trail features that may hold you back from finding your flow on the trail?  Having mastered the core fundamental skills training, do you want to take your riding ability to the next level? Then attending intermediate mountain bike skills training is for you. 

Intermediate skills training is what you need to progress from green and blue-rated trails to harder blue and single black diamond-rated trails. These skills also make the different between 'surviving' a trail while riding slowly with poor form, and riding it confidently with a good rolling speed.

For example, cornering is an extremely important intermediate skill, yet few riders have taken the time to learn and practice the techniques needed to corner quickly and safely. Whether they are flat, off-camber or bermed, corners are guaranteed to be a major feature of every trail, so gained speed through corners is an easy way to become faster and more confident. Technical climbs and steep descents are another area where many riders lose their flow and have difficulty, yet with the proper technique, you can be well on your way to conquering these.

Mastering intermediate skills, after professional instruction and continued practice, will allow you to ride a greater variety of trails with more speed, confidence and fun.

Intermediate skills include:

  • Cornering techniques
  • Advanced braking techniques
  • Climbing techniques
  • Front and rear wheel lifts
  • Navigation of steep downhill terrain and trail features such as rock rollers
  • Riding skinnies
  • Techniques to safely mount and dismount while in technical terrain, to avoid crashes

Intermediate skills can be taught during a one-to-one session or as a group.
