Following the format our successful 2019 race prep series, this is a custom, private course for racers preparing for the Quebec Singletrack Experience. The intent of this course is to practice and improve your bike skills for the race.
This is an advanced course for riders who have previously completed a minimum of 3 sessions with Ride Ottawa. Riders with advanced fitness and skills will be considered on request. Email us if you're itching to get on-board.
Instruction and coaching will refresh, focus and refine fundamental skills and add additional advanced skills and maneuvers with emphasis on reading trails, cornering, pressure control, traction, climbing and cadence techniques, descending control, body pumping for flow and momentum and wheel lifts, manuals and getting air.
Video analysis will be used on-trail and available later to riders for review. Practice sheets of additional drills and skills will be provide for self-directed work between coaching weeks.
Bring the bike you intend to ride for races. We will review and bike set-up and suspension adjustments to help you customize your controls and bike fit. It is important to practice the way you play, so we highly recommend you wear your race helmet, elbow and knee pads and your race-day hydration pack. Consider wearing your race kit so you can get a feel for how it fits, and how cool or warm it is to ride in.
