Women's Mountain Bike Skills Session Wanaka

Mission WOW & Be-Spoked- Women’s MTB Skills Sessions

Outside Sports Mountain Bike Skills Session Mission WOW Wanaka

When: 8 & 9 Nov 2014

MISSION:  To give you the skills to be more confident on your mountain bike so you can enjoy riding more

Course format: Each day will be split into 3 hours clinics, you can sign up for just am or pm or come for the whole day or weekend. There will normally be 2 coaches for each session, each with lots of experience riding, coaching, and generally inspiring the stoke.

The morning sessions (9-12) will be focussed on skills and drills, breaking down technique to build it back up- Body position, braking, gears and bike body separation. The afternoon sessions (1-4pm) will be the progression sessions where we look at flowing through different terrain- corners and switchbacks, roots, rocks and drops (starting small- like the curb!).We highly recommend that you come to a morning session first so that we can help iron out any niggles before you progress.  We can discuss the best option available to you.

Cost: Each session $99 per person (4-6 in a group)
10% discount if you book in for more than one session

National Secondary Schools Mountain Biking Championships 2014

National Secondary Schools Mountain Biking Championships NZ was held on the 4th of October down in Dunedin in the South Island of New Zealand at the Wakari forest trails. Ben Luke, who works for Outside Sports took part in the event taking a very well deserved 5th place.

Here's what Ben Luke had to say about the National Secondary Schools Mountain Biking Championships 2014:  

The track was pretty easy technically and not too steep either which meant it was going to be a pretty fast race, it was going to all be down to cardio and speed on the switchbacks which never ended throughout the course. It was 7 laps for the under 20 boys, my average lap was around 11 minutes, and after a 1km uphill start loop to spread out the riders we were onto the main course. I was expecting the start loop to be a ridiculous sprint before it got into the single track, which it was. The sprint went really well for me, really really well. I was surprised to find myself with Ben Oliver (Fresh off a European under 19 season) off the front. Just us two with a small gap on everyone else, going into the first downhill section though you could see why he is a world level racer. On the untechnical course he was carrying so much speed through all the turns I couldn’t stay with him. For the first two laps I was coming in 2nd place leading around 3 other guys who were right on my tail. Unluckily, just after we came around from the 2nd lap I slid my wheel out on a corner and that gave the opportunity for the 3 guys to pass me. I ended up not being dropped off the back of them another lap or so later. I came across the line 5th out of New Zealand riders which I was super stoked about. While it would’ve been good to get on the podium I was really happy with how I raced. I think I need to spend a lot more time working on carrying speed through tight corners because there was heaps of them and that’s where I lost a few positions.
