Event Description

TBF Mountain Bike Camp – Level 3

Whether you ride to compete or just for fun - it’s time to get better. We’ll be focusing on specific skills throughout the clinic; building on what you’ve learned in TBF MTB Camps Level I & II, and increasing your speed, polishing technique and boosting confidence. We will start coach and rider introductions followed by a review of your riding & racing experience and goals. We will then take you through a custom bike set-up for each rider and bike.
It won’t all be work though…after the bike set-up at the HUB Bicycles we’ll head up to Auburn to ride world-class trails including Flood Trail, Stage Coach, Culvert and Confluence to test your skills and style.  More than just a skills class, it’s a journey of self-improvement. In addition to bike skills, this class will give you an understanding of how to better utilize your body, the importance of nutrition and hydration, how to build a training plan around your everyday life and how to peak for the important events in your season. Throughout the class, we will work with you on visualization skills and developing a strong mental fortitude.
