Dirt, Rock n Root - Women's Downhill Clinic

Mountain Creek Bike Park is Proud to be the Home Mountain of Kathi Krause and Dirt, Rock n Root Training



Join Kathi and Dirt, Rock n Root Training for a series of 3 day women’s downhill clinics July 25-27 and August 22-24!  Riders will start by reviewing the core fundamentals and then move on to developing the key skills for conquering the mountain – descending position, cornering, braking.  You’ll work on how to pick the best line down the trail, and how to clear obstacles that you find along the way.  There will also be a GoPro video analysis of your riding, so you can literally see how you are improving!
