What to expect

You should be comfortable riding a bike and excited to learn to ride new-school flow techniques for all trails.

If you’re newer, more timid or simply have less time, check out a Level 1 class at Valmont Bike Park in Boulder, CO.

This Level 1.5 class will cover the core skills (they are the key to higher level performance, not to mention confidence and safety), but we will move faster than in a Level 1 class, then we will climb higher into the skills tree.

Expect to quickly cover this Level 1 content …

  • Position
  • Braking
  • Basic cornering
  • Upper body control in bumps (basic pumping)

… then dive into:

  • Advanced pumping (on the pump track and in the rocks)
  • Drops
  • Jumps (if you're ready)
  • And other fun stuff!

When you finish this three-hour whirlwind tour, you’ll have a solid toolkit that you can use on any type of trail—and that you can refine infinitely. We give you the Path to Mastery, so you’re always in the sweet spot:

Here's a note from one of our students:

Lee and Kevin,

My buddy Craig and I really enjoyed the clinic today. As experienced riders we were both looking for a way to take it to the next level, and I think we’ve planted that seed. We spent an hour or so after the clinic in the park and enjoyed putting our now perfect cornering and balance to work.

I wish I would have had this type of coaching when I was racing 10 yrs ago…better late than never.

Thanks,

Brian Glater

FAQs

Why are we covering the basics?

There are a few reasons:

1) We will not send you flying through the air without knowing, with high confidence, that you will land safely.

2) True mastery begins at the foundation. No matter how good you are (or think you are), you can always refine your fundamentals—and that’s how you get great. Check out 7-time XTERRA world champion Conrad Stoltz. He’s a big fan of LLB kung fu.

3) The basics give us a shared physical and verbal vocabulary. Once we program the core movements, higher level riding is just a matter of combining them and making adjustments with timing and power.

How much will I learn?

You’ll learn as much as you’re ready for. We’ll push you as quickly as we can, while maintaining quality and safety.

I am total badass. Why do I need this?

The true badasses—riders like Brian Lopes, Curtis Keene and Conrad Stoltz—know they are on the path to kung fu awesomeness, and that path never ends. The moment you think you’re finished learning, you’re finished having fun (and your days of true shredding are over).

If you think you’re too cool for school, spend that $150 on some carbon handlebars.
