Rock Dodge

& SO MUCH MORE!

In this clinic we will cover planning to shift ahead or points in the trail or climb we can find when to shift properly!

Have you ever changed gears and suddenly hear the gears grinding in the background?

Surge , Soft pedal (SHIFT) and return to regular pedal power.

This works in climbs as well .

If you can't make a full pedal rotation due to obstacles and obstructions in the trail; Ratcheting will allow you to crank ¼ to ½ a rotation . This allow you to keep balance and and momentum forward without striking a pedal. This is helpful to help you crest THAT though climb.

WHy dismount when you can trackstand, besides being a cool party trick this steady stance will keep you ready to roll forward . Great to use when someone stalls over a obstacle or climb. It get tougher to do once you let go of those brakes. TIP: Elevate / Press, forward foot - heel down.

What to bring:

  • A good working mountain bike (in your size)*

  • Hydration system

  • Snell or ANSI approved helmet (properly fitted)

  • Stiff soled shoes

  • Flat Pedals (IMBA recommends learning all skills with platform pedals so please take the clips off for the day)
