Alison Dunlap, WMBA member and sponsor, World Champion and 2-time Olympian, has offered to run a WMBA members only mountain bike skills camp in Moab, Utah March 28-30, 2014. This camp is not open to the public and is being offered at a deep discount.
For those of you that already have a strong mountain bike background, come join us in Moab for a three day intermediate skills camp. This adventure is for riders that are comfortable on technically challenging singletrack, but haven’t ridden in Moab; or maybe you’ve already been to Moab but want to come back for the more advanced rides. In our Moab Camp we’ll spend the first half-day fine tuning our skills by reviewing the basics and then learning the more advanced riding techniques needed for Moab. We’ll spend the rest of our time on some of the big epic rides, practicing and becoming proficient on the technical sections, working on “enduro” style descending, and becoming more adept with our climbing. It’s a challenging weekend both mentally and physically, but when you head home you’ll have an arsenal of new skills and techniques that will make you a faster, stronger, and safer rider.
