The intermediate clinics listed above are for folks who are at a comfortable intermediate and want to boost to the next level of riding.  I will show you many techniques that simplify the technical riding and make it a lot of fun, plus show you around one of the best riding locations in the USA.  

A typical clinic starts with a breakdown of proper body position.  We will spend the morning completing drills which help demonstrate the desired body position.  The drills are essential to understanding the techniques.  We will tackle proper braking skills.  The front brake has 70% of your stopping power and keeps you in control.  Learning to control your front and rear brake is essential.  We will work on switchbacks and cornering techniques and there are drills that assist with learning the techniques.  We will work technical sections and the best way to get through the rocks.  I will try at all clinics to cover beginning jumps and drops.  These will be small as to build confidence.
