In an effort to improve the South African mountain biking experience even further, MiWayMTB, the mountain bike initiative driven by direct insurer MiWay, has teamed up with TREAD Magazine’s very successful skills improvement initiative.
Started in April 2010, TREAD Skills Clinics have helped improve the skills of hundreds of mountain bikers through a combination of improved control, comfort and confidence.
According to MiWayMTB’s Carine Conradie, the clinics are designed to equip mountain biking enthusiasts with the skills they need to safely enjoy the sport. “TREAD editor, Sean Badenhorst, and his team will provide riders with tips and techniques to help maximise their performance while making the whole experience as enjoyable – and as painless – as possible,” says Conradie.
The clinics cater for newcomers and more experienced riders looking to sharpen their technical skills and improve specific performance areas. The clinics are broken into two levels, 101 and 201 in order to cover all the relevant areas of importance. Once a rider has graduated from a 101 level, he or she may then, after some weeks of practising, attend a 201 clinic. A Confidence Clinic will be also introduced for those brand new to mountain biking.
“Mountain biking enjoyment and fulfillment can only really be achieved when you have the confidence to tackle the various trail or race obstacles such as ruts, roots, rocks, drop-offs, steep ascents and descents etc,” says Badenhorst.. “Our clinics are designed to teach mountain bikers the correct technique to be able to conquer these obstacles and are appropriate for all mountain bikers. Our clinics are also very popular with road cyclists converting to mountain biking.”
