Absolutely awesome!

Simply great, got quite a bit of mountainbiking experience in XC, but never done real downhill. Our group was with 3 people, 2 woman and me, as we had 2 coaches we directly split so I could get just the attention I needed to get me going. They also have some nice deals to directly continue afterwards. Thanks CJ for the great tips, hopefully back soon :-)

In the words of my 7yr old biker: “Awesome”

Totally recommend to any budding mountain bikers. My daughter had the best coach for her DH Apprentice experience. Michael was so attentive and thorough and friendly. He easily won my daughter’s trust, covering all the basics of bike handling on the flat, and then coached her down 8km of downhill track, building her confidence and checking on her positioning and fatigue levels all the way. He also coped admirably with having me hanging around too! This was an excellent grounding in the skills needed to have fun on downhill trails and I’d give it 10 stars if I could .
