Our professional instructors will provide detailed breakdowns of tight turn and cornering skills along with a progression of drills to help you improve your performance. This session will cover skills such as pedal ratcheting, rock dodge, tight turns, riding switchbacks, and high speed cornering. Bikes and helmets are available for students if needed, but bringing your own well-tuned bike is highly recommended for skills retention.
