This course does exactly what is says on the Tin!

Your ‘Core Skills’ are the essential building blocks to confident and safe riding at any level. The sooner you work out your bad habits and the areas that are holding back your riding, the sooner you will progress and develop your 'flow' = more fun on the trails, so what are you waiting for?

Your Ability: Participants should be at a standard of riding on Red graded trails or natural terrain at that level or above.

The key elements we build in to this course are:

Introductory bike set up

Body Position & footwork

Efficient braking

Efficient Climbing and descending

Confident cornering (flat & berms)

Energy management (that 'elusive' pumping & Soaking up trail features)

Introduction to trail manuals

Introductory steps & drops

Introductory riding through Jumps

We will also spend a bit of time looking at the psychological aspects of your riding to give you more confidence. We will take you through them all in a controlled and progressive environment suited to your riding.

The Open Core Skills course includes:

A full day (10am to 4pm) of fully qualified MTB Skills coaching. 

Suitable progressive terrain in our own ‘private’ skills area.

Live video coaching so you can see what you are actually doing.

Post course links to all the video footage from the course plus Demo's videos.

Post course Reminder sheet with key learning elements of each skill  for continual development.
