Improve your mountain biking.

Last Friday saw the third instalment of the Bike Academy’s free improvement sessions. Aimed at helping you level up your skills, we saw a range of abilities from near first timers to seasoned locals. Rob and Ben were on hand to give feedback and get in to the finer details of body positioning and movement.

Over the past few weeks Rob has been running some open mountain biking skills sessions as a free introductory endeavour. These have had a great turn out with an ever varying cast of locals to Verbier with a range of abilities catered for. Skills such as body and foot position, lateral movements and cornering were work at on the flat before taking to the trails of Verbier. Once on the trails these ‘basics’ were consolidated whilst developing line choice, braking and best tactics for the terrain at hand. To have a look at what went on check out the reels here and here and even here. Or, even better give the Bike Academy a follow @wsbikeacademy.

These were the perfect introduction to what we are aiming to achieve with the Bike Academy. We want to go beyond, not only showing you the best mountain biking Verbier has to offer, but making real lasting changes to your confidence and ability on a mountain bike. The team have years of mountain biking experience, we remember being excited about the power of V-brakes, oh how times have changed. Combine this with an inbuilt desire to help people achieve their goals through the building and understanding of solid fundamentals based on how we can best get our body to function to get the bike to perform how it was designed. Much in the same way we have been improving peoples skiing for decades let us do the same for your mountain biking.

See you soon.
