Mountain Bike Skills Courses

Mastering Red Trails - Trail Centre Skills

A rider practices dynamic weight shift

Learn how to attack difficult technical trails with confidence, commitment & skill

Have you reached a plateau in your mountain biking and can't seem to ride faster on technical terrain without fear of falling off? Maybe you've tried a few red graded backcountry or trail centre trails, but lacked the confidence to hit technical sections as hard as you would like?

Our Mastering Red Trails course will build upon your Fundamentals to give you a toolbox of mountain bike skills that you can apply to any terrain, in any location, and any in conditions; be it a gnarly back country trail in The Lakes or classic red route at a Welsh trail centre?

Following training you will see an immediate improvement in your riding and a boost in your confidence on technical trails. You will be able to tackle rougher terrain and trickier corners with greater control and negotiate bigger trail obstacles and moderate drops with confidence and commitment.

Neil (the coach) very quickly identified and unravelled bad habits and described correct technique in a way that had instant results on the bike
