This program is designed to elevate the skills of your intermediate to advanced youth rider to the next level. We'll focus on mastering more advanced riding techniques to confidently tackle challenging blue and black features, including roll downs, ladder bridges, and technical trails. You'll gain better control of speed and precision braking through demanding terrain. Our team of experienced Level 1 & 2 PMBIA certified coaches will be there every step of the way, providing expert instruction to enhance your riding abilities.
Is this level right for you? If you're a strong rider on all blue technical trails, able to maintain momentum through rock and rooted sections, this program is tailored for your continued progress. During the course, we will work on refining techniques to confidently handle harder blue and some black features. Riding at a moderate, safe speed while maintaining momentum should be part of your skill set.
Additionally, we'll be focusing on honing more advanced techniques like rear-wheel lifts, precise bunny hops, skilled track stands, and confidently handling small jumps and drops using proper technique. If this aligns with your current riding ability, join us for an exhilarating experience of conquering more challenging features and elevating your mountain biking expertise. Count on our successful track record since 2007 in Kootenay mountain biking to provide a top-notch learning experience.

Originally from Western Australia, Shannon spent his teenage years on a BMX building jumps through nothing but trial and error (i.e a lot of crashes). After almost 15 years off the bike he finally rented a full suspension mountain bike at Kicking Horse in 2013 and fell back in love with 2 wheels. Living in Banff and Japan made serious mountain biking tough, but the last few years living in Rossland, along with an upgrade to a modern bike, have him craving for more speed and bigger air. Shannon is a professional photographer and videographer and also works Ski Patrol at RED in the winter. In the summer when not working you can probably find him digging at the Rossland dirtjumps (just like when he was a kid).
