Want to join us for two days of getting your shred on?
We are adding a men’s downhill camp again this year!!
We are super-stoked for more skill development fun at the men’s Downhill Camp this season! The camp is designed for intermediate to advanced XC riders that haven’t done much, or any, bike park riding and want to see what downhill is all about. RMCC Coach Jacob Johnson will take riders through the basics of downhill to help riders gain some key DH skills including:
- Making good line choices
- Body position and braking skills for descending
- Riding downhill-style stunts including trail features and drops
- Bringing bike handling skills and confidence to the next level
- And helping riders loosen up and be more playful on their bike!
All of this will be done on downhill trails in the bike park that are an appropriate level for the group. We had a blast at last year’s camp and look forward to doing it again this year, so come on and join us!
