Dirt School, Back on Track, Ride-On and the Pennine Mountain Bike Action (PMBA) group have combined to offer a weekend of subsidised coaching at the Lee Quarry site in Lancashire on January 14-15.
They’ve told us the trails at Lee Quarry are considered to be some of the best in the country to deliver coaching on and that, combined with Dirt School’s mountain bike expertise means every rider should walk away from the weekend with plenty of insights, tips and ideas on how to get the most out of their riding.
Lee Quarry has been designed as a venue to help riders progress their technical riding, with a range of sections from intermediate through to black grade technical drops, rock gardens and chutes. Throw in two pump tracks, a jump trail, trials areas and a skills loop and you have a great spot to learn, with even the British Cycling Olympic development team using the quarry.
Back on Track have designed and built many of the trails in the quarry and will be spending the week leading up to the weekend working hard to ensure they are in tip-top condition for the courses.
Ride- On have previously been called on to mechanic for Team Intense, Giant World team, helping to secure numerous national titles and a junior downhill World Championship win. On hand throughout the weekend, they will advise on riding kit and bike setup, and assist with repairs, while they will also have have a selection of demo bikes available exclusively to riders on the course.
There are a maximum of 20 spaces at a one-off subsidised rate of £55 per day. Head to www.dirtschool.co.uk/courses/xc/ to secure your spot.
