Rider Development Site

The premise of these classes is not speed, but rather the building of solid fundamental techniques to practice and draw upon when riding. These are tools that you will use every time you ride and we will give you techniques for a variety of situations. Once you master these techniques and drop your bad habits control and confidence will improve and speed will develop naturally.

You will learn techniques for: balance, accelerating, braking, turning, jumping, logs, rocks, step ups, drop offs, ruts, roots, climbs, creeks and more.

Held in Pioneer, CA off of Hwy 88, these weekend series will consist of full day cross training sessions consisting of small group instruction from some of the best riders in Northern California (Dr. Mark, Colton Haaker, David Gassin, Ricky Rinauro).

You will practice on a watered and prepped natural terrain mx track, enduro x track, and single track trail (full prep by track builder Troy Burchby). Classes are open to all riders and small groups will broken down to skill level.
