Brevard Mountain Bike School Level 3

  • North Carolina
  • Jun 16 - 17, 2018
  • MTB
Refine Advanced Techniques, Jumping, Switchbacks, and Technical Drops

The big picture is that the Level 3 course is designed for the high intermediate to advanced rider looking to refine their technical trail riding. These riders already have comfort in a wide range of motion over the bike, able to move forward/backward, up/down, side to side over the bike to create good bike/body separation. Riders can already get over obstacles by lifting/unweighting wheels as needed in a variety of terrain. For example; riding up a 6in high step while going up a steep incline, getting through a continuous rock garden where each wheel needs to be lifted individually at precise moments in timing with rocks, ride a wheelie for a short distance, etc.

The evolution in the 3rd school is now to take those skills and refine them to better read lines and make best selections on varied terrain. Berms and flat turns advanced techniques, jumping, descending and climbing switchback, and technical drops will all be covered during the school.

In addition to the MTB camps that are on the public calendar, we also do private instruction for individuals or groups. Those can have custom dates and curriculum based on your needs. More info on that here.

Camp Itinerary

DAY 1

CHECK-IN AND FIRST SKILLS SESSION

Check-in Time: 8:00 AM

Where: CTS Brevard, 11 Mama’s Way Suite B, Pisgah Forest NC

Description: Arrive at 8:00 AM prepared to ride, after a fast check in we will move over to DuPont State Forest. The first day will be broken up into two sessions. During the morning session the group will cover manuals and when to use them, suspension and tire selection, pumping, jumping and flat vs bermed turns. Once we have thoroughly worked up an appetite we will dine on local foods and fuel up for the afternoon ride.

During the lunch break, we will be performing a lecture on nutrition and how it can impact the skills needed during a ride in the woods.

For the afternoon ride, we will do a fast warm up and review of the morning skills. Following the warm up and review we will head out on the trail and apply the morning skills.

Lunch: Along the Trail @12:30PM

DAY 2

SKILLS SESSION AND TRAIL RIDE

Description: Day two is all about Pisgah National Forest and the technical trails within. We will take day ones topics and add riding roots, reading trails and line of sight on technical terrain, drop offs, technical corners up and down, switchbacks, and proper braking and climbing technique for technical terrain.

The afternoon session is all about putting the weekend together. More trail riding will be involved but with less stopping to work on sections and more linking parts of the trail together. After ripping down the final descent we will smoothly ride sections that used to cause us trouble. But most of all we will have FUN!

Lunch: Along the Trail @ 12:30PM

Camp Conclusion: Camp will conclude Sunday afternoon after our final ride at 4 PM.
