We finish daily programming each day at 12:30 and pick up is in the same place. Equipment: Make sure your athlete has a rain jacket, snacks, water, helmet, sunglasses, sunscreen and a bike! Look over your athlete's bike this week and if it needs a tune-up take it to Max at the BootDoctors this week. Look to see that it shifts, the brakes work properly, the chain is lubed and the tires have air. We ride hard! We will help athletes with basic bike maintenance at camp. Please pack snacks to fit in a camelback versus big backpack. We try to encourage our athletes to carry their own snacks, water and layers in their own camelbacks, but can help if it's too much. Coaches: Max Cooper and Jesse James McTigue started Telluride Mountain Bike Camp and a middle and high school fall team last year. They will be helping this Summer but not available for every camp session. This Summer Zak Watkins and I will be coaching and other
