KUNG FU SKILLS CLINICS IN WISCONSIN APRIL 25 AND 27

Hey all, I’ll be training high school coaches at Trek headquarters in Waterloo, WI.

Please join my public skills clinic on April 25 or 27.




Teaching technical climbing skills in Prescott, AZ. Lee will show you how to make the most of your power.

Your teacher
Lee McCormack is considered one of the world’s best skills instructors. He wrote the books Mastering Mountain Bike Skills, Teaching Mountain Bike Skills, Pro BMX Skills, Welcome to Pump Track Nation, Pump Up the Base, Prepare to Pin It and F6. Lee serves as skills development director for NICA, the national high school mountain bike league. He works with riders of all styles and levels, from beginners to world champions. Similar sessions all over the U.S. have sold out fast and been sweet!

Location
CamRock Park in Cambridge, WI.

The plan
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

We’ll tweak the program to suit the riders who attend. Here’s the basic plan.

In the morning we’ll hit core skills:

• Position
• Braking
• Cornering
• Going up and down things
• Pumping terrain

Learn more about skills clinics with Lee.

We’ll take a quick lunch break (BYOL) then we’ll apply our new skills on the sick local trails! Expect to tackle rocks, drops, gaps and other technical treats in a whole new, sweeter way.

Note: This is a long but rad day. Show up rested and hydrated. If you’re not in shape, I suggest starting the F6: Six Moves to Build Your Foundation and Pump Up the Base training programs right away.

Cost
$300 per rider. Six riders max per session.

Quotes from stoked students

“I’ve been a coach, instructor, and lecturer for some 20+ years now, and have worked alongside some of the best. I can definitively say I know what great coaching and teaching looks like. I’ve also been riding and racing a bike since I was 7. After 38 years of practice, I thought I had it all figured out. Lee’s personality, teaching style, and step by step technical breakdown of the finer details of mountain biking elevated my riding skill in just a few short hours. No matter just how good you think you are, Lee’s instruction will take you to another level.”
James Herrera, USA Cycling National Team BMX Coach

“I can’t thank Lee Likes Bikes enough for the skills coaching this past weekend in Arizona!! Little by little, I’m learning how to shred!”
Chloe Woodruff, top American XC racer

“If any of you ever get a chance to do a skills clinic (MTB) with Lee McCormack, do yourself a favor and sign up. The guy rocks. I don’t care what your level is, beginner through seasoned pro, he will help you. And he’ll give you about 200 “Braaaaps!” throughout the course of the day, because he rocks! (Yah, he REALLY likes bikes too!)
I’m no DHer, very far from it.. just a roadie XC wannabe. But I’ve PRed every freakin’ local DH segment I’ve hit since Lee’s clinic a few weeks ago. By a decent margin too. Comfortably. Safely! And, I have lots more drilling to go, to really retrain my brain to do the right things instinctively (instead of constantly “thinking”). Stoked!”

Lee,
I just wanted to say thanks for the clinic on Friday. I had so much fun and learned so much. You do a terrific job of teaching things in a simple digestible fashion.
A dropper has been ordered, I swapped out my [Ergon] grips to keep my hands light, and I am trying to talk my wife into a pump track in the yard (that may take some time).
I hope you enjoyed your time in AZ. Keep spreading the Fu gospel. Braaaaaappppp!
Phil

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 we believe your bike is not safe, we will spend clinic time making it safe. If we need to adjust anything — brakes, gears, suspension — we 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 Lee’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.

If you are a mountain bike skills coach or instructor, and you work on your own or with another party, please do not sign up for an LLB clinic. See below:

    You think the trails will be snow free and dried out by then?

    Heck I hope so! We’re also training the first wave of Wisconsin high school coaches.

    CamRock Trails officially opened last Thursday. With good weather they should be in fine shape for the classes.
    See you at the NICA classes on Saturday Lee!
