Attention Masters Riders Age 35 & up!   It’s never too late to learn how to downhill. Want to gain more confidence riding downhill? Want to feel the flow of the awesome trails at Thunder Mountain?

Thunder mountain is teaming up with 3X master’s world downhill champion Kathi Krause of Dirt Rock n Root Training for a co-ed master’s weekend of confidence-building skill instruction and riding.  You don’t have to be an experienced mountain biker to participant in this camp, you just have to have a desire to ride your mountain bike! This camp is geared towards beginner to intermediate men and women riders 35 and over.

Saturday starts with mountain bike fundamentals , including:  basic body position, braking, and cornering. Then we’ll head out to Sugar Line for more coaching and on-trail feedback.  After lunch we’ll work on some more skills and progress onto the blue trails.  

Sunday is all about more advanced skills. We will work on the skills for tackling drops and jumps including front, rear and level wheel lifts. Then we’ll take it onto the mountain to try out our new skills. 

Come feel the flow! Join us and become part of the awesome mountain bike community and get to know other folks with a passion to ride. 

Mountain bike with 6+ inches of travel and flat pedals recommended. Helmet required. Body armor highly recommended. Camp runs from 10-6 each day and is limited to 8 participants.  Sign up now so you don’t miss out.
