Training Clinics for Body Positioning and Braking – Get in quick!
More clinics for December 2018!

We get positive feedback about the quality of training – and not just from Geoff.

We are squeezing in some more training clinics before the end of the year. So on the 15/16th of December we’ve organised Geoff from HitBikes to run some skills training for body positioning and new braking techniques clinics.

These will be small 5-person classes about 90min long and will teach you the importance of body positioning on a bike such as the “attack position” and the new braking technique clinics will teach the importance of…well… braking I guess.

The classes are $11 and the money goes back to trail-care and organising future training clinics.

Strength and Mobility Clinic Summary – 14/11/2018

Strength and Mobility Clinic Summary – 14/11/2018
Hips, legs, shoulders and back - this stretch did it all

So last week we had a Strength and Mobility clinic put on by Levi at 547 Sports Performance.

To make sure it was relevant for our bike riding he asked us where it hurt when we ride so things like wrists, back, knees, pride etc.

He then explained why it hurt and took us through a series of exercises to stretch and strengthen our bodies. These stretches done regularly help provide pain-free riding and increase our endurance and strength. It was a good night full of interesting and useful information… even with all the physical pain, sobbing and cries of agony.  :o)

Thanks again Levi.

MTB Training Clinic – Enduro Skills – 10/11/2018
8 riders per clinic - 2 clinics - MTBA members only

Hello folks,

So we had a high level of interest in doing some more advanced level skill training like descending faster, jumping and fast berms etc – because everyone knows that’s the sort of stuff that pulls the chicks/lads etc.

We have procured the well-reviewed services of local elite level downhill rider and coach Jacob Reeves for 2 x 3-hour intensive clinics on Saturday the 10/11/2018.

The morning clinic (8am) will be for intermediate riders who want to learn the advanced skills such as jumping and doing berms faster. The afternoon clinic (12.30pm) is for advanced riders who can already jump etc but want to get better at it.

These  longer, intensive clinics are $50 and YOU MUST BE AN MTBA MEMBER for insurance purposes.

Reserve your spot here – https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/bushrangers-mtb-skills-clinic-enduro-skills-tickets-51710767297

Hello folks,

Happy campers!

So we are sorting out the next batch of training clinics. We will be moving onto Braking next but we will still throw in a few more Body Position clinics for the people who missed out.

That cool?
