Meet your instructor

In addition to being the first LLB certified instructor, Judd Zimmerman has worked with hundreds of NICA coaches and student athletes. He applies Lee’s fundamental teaching genius in sessions with all different skill levels and varying learning styles. From veteran pros to first time riders he helps riders find less flop and more Braaap.

Judd started and coached the Pleasant Grove high mountain bike team, helping hundreds of riders improve their bike handling skills. He is now an operations manager for the Utah high school mountain biking league, making the races a well-oiled thing of beauty. Judd has a race background in XC, Downhill, Super-D (see sweet podium photo!), and Enduro.

As much as he loves to race, his passion is biking and sharing his love for biking with others. This truly shows in how he conducts himself both on and off the bike.

Off the bike, Judd is a machinist by day and a superhero by night to his wife and his three outrageously fast kids who all enjoy biking (possibly) as much as he does.

Says a happy camper:

“Judd, that was AWESOME! Thank you so much! I know I’m kinda a wimp and swear a lot, but I learned so much from you and Im excited to get out biking!”

Policies

Time: The clock starts at the appointed time. Be ready to ride.

Equipment: Your bike should be well adjusted and in good working order. If Judd believes your bike is not safe, we will spend clinic time making it safe. If Judd needs to adjust anything —brakes, gears, suspension — he will use clinic time.

Changes and cancellations: If you want to change your appointment, you must notify me by phone or email within 24 hours. After that time, there will be no change or refund.

Weather: Bad weather does not cancel sessions. If the conditions permit any kind of riding, we will ride. If it’s raining, bring a jacket. If it’s muddy, we’ll find another surface to ride on. If the lift closes because of lightning, we will push our bikes or practice in the parking lot. If we do cancel because of weather, it will be at Judd’s discretion, and he will notify you as early as possible.

Liability: Bike riding has inherent risks, and you must accept those risks. You will sign a waiver before you ride.

    From Linda:

    Judd,

    Thanks again for the skills clinic! I had a fantastic ride at Round Valley. It was a perfect race to practice some of the stuff you taught me. Even though I only focused on one thing, I couldn’t BELIEVE what a difference it made. A few other riders even remarked afterward that I was a new rider. The twins didn’t recognize me coming down the final hill because they said I wasn’t riding like I usually do so they didn’t know it was me until the last minute!

    Thanks again! I can’t even imagine how it will feel when I do the other things you taught me and all the stuff we didn’t get to yet. If there is ANYTHING I can do for you, let me know. I owe you big time!

    From Jason:

    Hey man, I wanted to share a story with you about my ride tonight. So, I went up AF Canyon like I had planned. I parked at Timpanooke and started riding down towards Salamander Flats. I saw the junction for Snow Gauging and remembered you saying it was fun so I took it climbing like a beast (in retrospect going down it would have been more fun). Anyhow, onve I dropped down to the Summit trail head and crossed the road the trail started inclining down pretty rapidly with roots and rocks. I was in attack position entering it and then it happened… for the first time in my life I felt the “beautiful violence”. My head and body were practically still and floating along while my bike was freely bouncing around beneath me. It was awesome! I was in straight up Flow. The rest of my ride was full of those moments as my confidence grew. I know I have a long way to go, but thanks to you I “suck less” now and riding is so much more fun. I did my entire loop without ever hiking my bike. Anyhow, thanks for your help.
