Learning how to jump safely and successfully (and land) your mountain bike involves a range of key components and constantly changing variables. Join us as we take you through a series of progressions that will help you understand all the components that will help you become a successful jumper. We use BICP progressions like the different types of wheel lifts and bunny hops and work our way up to weighting and un-weighting over a jump. From there, we will review the anatomy of a jump, discuss varied landings and practice using compression for height and distance. Then we will be ready to get jumping! These Skill Clinics are all done in a controlled environment, we provide our own approved orange obstacles as training tool to emulate what you see in the trails or manufactured jump ramps. Participants are encouraged to learn at their own pace in this un-intimidating environment. You will leave this clinic well on your way to jumping mastery – with a more thorough understanding of the mechanics of jumping your bike and a clear idea of what and how to practice getting your Wheels Up!
