Ride better, faster, safer. Prepare for the LeeLikesBikes Enduro MTB Skills Big Mountain Enduro Race at Glorieta Camps March 24-25.
After 30 years as a rider and 15 years as a professional bike guy, LeeLikesBikes Enduro MTB Skills had learned some things, and the coolest thing he’d learned is the Grand Unified Theory of Shred (GUTS).
Underlying all riding skills — climbing, cornering, pumping, hopping, jumping and basically ripping, not to mention most other sports — you’ll find one simple, universal, archetypal movement pattern.
We call this pattern row/anti-row or, more simply, rip/row. We will use the RipRow training tool to hack the cheat codes of shredding into your subconscious, then we’ll show you how rip/row movement ties into your riding.
Yes! It’s that simple. You only need to learn and refine one movement pattern, then plug it into all aspects of your mountain biking:
Climbing with utmost efficiency
Braking heavy to generate traction
Pumping corners to generate speed and traction
Pumping bumps to gain speed and control
Hopping smoothly and easily
Jumping perfectly (and safely)
Envisioning and creating shapes on technical trails
Pro-level trail-reading (with help from some actual pros)
You’ll see immediate, tremendous improvement in your riding. As you master the fundamentals, it’s a smooth progression to more advanced skills like hopping, dropping, jumping and technical climbing. We build your foundation of great riding — and we show you how to progress as high as you want.
All of our lessons use the same cognitive structure, but each clinic and group ride is unique to the individual riders and the local terrain. Depending on the local trails, you can expect to explore rock gardens, drops, jumps and technical climbs/descents.
At LLB we believe the greatest improvement comes from a combination of individual learning and practice and in-person time with a qualified instructor.
Lots of riders all over the world—beginners to pros—are reaching new levels of shred with the LLBMTB Online Mountain Bike School. When you combine the online learning with an in-person clinic or group ride, your skills — and fun — will skyrocket.
For the first time ever, when you sign up for an in-person LLB experience, you’ll receive a subscription to the LLBMTB Online Mountain Bike School. We’ll send details after you register.
Full-day classes run 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and cost $300. We’ll cover core skills in the morning, eat lunch (BYOL) then apply our skills on the local terrain. This is a long, tiring and awesome day!
Half-day classes run 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and cost $150. Join us for core skills in the morning and stay for lunch if you like. If you want to stay for the whole day (most people do), you’re welcome to.
*There is a $10 cash/check per rider fee at Glorieta camps. The funds support the camp, including trail development and maintenance. Please be sure to pay the camp fee.
