Enduro MTB Clinics

2.5 hrs of coached riding.  The focus is to learn and enhance the technique of riding blind or sight unseen.  With the emerging popularity of marathon, multi day and enduro riding/races as well as traveling and riding with friends in new locations, this skill becomes more important.   We will be riding trails in North Vancouver, Squamish, Whistler and Pemberton.  Each day a trail is chosen and the coaches will guide the participants in choosing lines, riding obstacles with more finesse and smoothness and working on efficiently transitioning from downs to short ups within a trail.  Techniques will be cornering, rock rolls, loose descents, steeps, berms. Etc.

Main Coaches Chrissy de Vall (mtn bike Olympian), Elladee Brown (World Class DH racer and original Free Rider) and Christina Chappetta (Top Enduro racer in National and World Cup Events) Guest coaches will announced closer to each clinic. -10:30am – 1pm – $49/clinic – TaG Club members $39
