Day 2 – Technical:
Day 2 gets technical with wheel lifts for tackling obstacles found on the trail, dealing with tricky trail features such as rocks and roots, assured cornering and maintaining speed into corners, how to tackle drops in the trail and flying drop offs for extra style points and introduce flow into their riding.
Day 3 – Flow:
The techniques learned on day 2 will help to ride with great flow, pumping the bike on fast flowing trails, railing berms and carrying speed into corners, we’ll cover the fundamentals of getting two wheels off the ground safely and in control, moving around on the bike to get the most out of every inch of the trail.
