Mountain Biking Skills Courses
A solid foundation for riding fun
It is not only novices who will benefit from skills training, even seasoned mountain bikers can learn from it. Good riding technique is a basic requirement for travelling safely on uneven ground. Our three-hour skills coaching courses teach participants all the important skills that make a good mountain biker. The primary focus is on balance: those who can balance well on a mountain bike will cope with most situations on the trail without problems. Participants can test their own skills and prepare for specific situations with our qualified MTB guides at our skills coaching facility.
The better a rider’s individual technique, the more fun they will have on the trails as they suddenly find themselves mastering seemingly tricky situations in style.
Our Mountain Biking Skills Courses
Modular courses for all levels of ability
Our mountain bike courses take place at our dedicated skills coaching facility, which is ideal for practising a wide variety of different riding techniques. Steps, see-saws, and our own unique apparatuses for drilling skills such as balance create the perfect environment for practising challenging trail techniques. A variety of trails and lift facilities start directly from the training ground, so that newly learned skills can be tested straight away. With proper training, descents become twice as fun.
