Whether you are looking for an intensive training block to prepare for your key event of the season, or just a want an epic mountain biking trip to explore some of the best trails in the Colorado Rockies, we have got the camp for you! Our Epic Mountain Bike Camp is 3 days of long mtb rides (4-6 hours), big climbs, and epic single track in Breckenridge, Colorado.
The Breckenridge Epic Mountain Bike Camp will be more than a series of coach-led trail rides. We’ve designed an intensive learning and training experience for you. We will be riding long distances on great trails, and stopping to teach you skills that will make you faster, more confident, and more efficient on the trails. You’ll learn handling skills for both climbing and descending, along with pacing, nutrition, and hydration techniques for endurance rides/races and high-altitude adventures.
Because we have a very high staff to athlete ratio we are able to split our groups based on ability and fitness level to ensure every athlete gets the most out of their camp. Due to the length of the rides and overall technical nature of the trails in Breckenridge, this camp is intended for intermediate to advanced mountain bikers.
