Fast-track Singletrack Skills

Take your trail skills from zero to hero over two intensive days of skills coaching

So you've been mountain biking a while and have probably realised that there's more to this incredibly exciting sport than simply being able to ride a bike.

On our Fast-track Singletrack Skills course our expert coaches will take what you have learned so far to the next level and beyond. We'll tell what you're already doing right, so you can do more of that, and what you're doing wrong.

On Day One we'll polish your fundamentals, iron out any bad habits you may have picked up, get you moving around your bike and tackling some trail obstacles with style and finesse.

Then on Day Two we'll take these fundamentals to the next level and teach you some trail skills that will have you riding your local loops faster and tackling larger obstacles more confidently than ever before.

After the course you'll find your enjoyment of the sport will increase dramatically. You'll no longer feel like you're just surviving trails, you'll feel in more control and ready to the most technical of trails.

The course content was spot on for me and delivered in a humourous, patient and encouraging style. I have a lot to work on after years of bad habits, but I really feel much more confident that I now have the tools to tackle trails and obstacles that I wouldn't even have considered a week ago. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this course to anyone who wants to take their riding to a different level.
