Zach Griffith yells at Madison “Mad Dawg” Bailey at last year’s fall camp. Madison won his class overall this year. Sweet!
Check out last year’s camp. It was awesome!

Are you ever going to do a camp in SoCal?
Although this camp will probably attract MAINLY gravity riders, I’d like to go on record and say taht after taken “The Basics” clinic with Lee, ALL of my riding improved, not just my DH and 4X racing. I would highly encourage anyone that rides mountain bikes to come out and give the camp a try – you’ll end up a more confident rider, able to tackle more difficult terrain with much more aplomb!
After reading it in MBA all these years, I’ve always wanted to use aplomb in a sentence myself.
