ASDT MTB Clinic - Vision, Body Position & Braking

Mountain biking is so many different skills and techniques that are all used together, but learning skills broken into multiple clinics, a rider can better grasp the individual skills which will make it easier to combine them in the end. Most women’s mountain bike clinics are a couple days of ALL the skills in the mini clinics. This can be overwhelming to a new rider and it is hard to process so much information so quickly. By concentrating on a couple of skills at a time at the clinic, a student can learn quicker and easier. The retention of the skill is also increased as there is more time to focus on those specific skills.

If you are a beginner and want to start at the beginning of this MTB clinic series, that is great! If you want to pick and choose which ones that is also an option for you. More time is focused on one technique so that the specific technique will be simpler to learn.

Expect these to be 3 hours, the beginning 30 minutes will be discussing the skill/technique. The remainder of the time will be a group ride that works on this specific technique to build this new skill. The Spring/Summer clinics will start in April and go through June on select Saturday mornings. We will be having another round in the Fall. The clinics will be all over the Wasatch from Ogden, Salt Lake and Park City areas.

These three skills make the foundation of mountain biking. All other skills build on these three. This clinic will cover how to read the trail and improve overall preparation for riding. The clinic will also cover vision planning on the trail – allows you to physically prepare for the next maneuver, also to correct the bad habit of staring at the front wheel. Part of this clinic will also cover visualization of mountain biking. What you believe you can do will happen! Vision is the key. This clinic will cover proper body position.

Understanding how to distribute weight on the bike for descending and ascending is very important. We will also cover weighting the pedals and getting comfortable moving the bike around on the trail beneath you. Proper body position is not intuitive and this clinic will cover everything you need to know to help you improve your bike handling skills using body position.

Learning how to use your brakes correctly is super important, this will help you not only control your ride, but also make you faster. Your front brake is your friend, it has 70% of the stopping power and the control when decelerating.
