Enduro, I mean advanced trailriding, clinic No. 1

The first Lee Likes Bikes Enduro™ clinic was awesome, but very few of the riders cared about Enduro or wanted to do any official Enduro-ing. They just wanted to learn advanced riding skills, which was super cool with me.

On March 29 we got lucky with a really cool group of riders.

In four hours we worked on:

• Position
• Braking
• Cornering
• Advanced cornering
• Pumping
• Advanced pumping
• Dropping
• Jumping!

Thanks to Lester Pardoe for the photos.

This turn on the upper pump track is tricky. Step 1: Enter high and wide.

Step 2: Look through the turn, all the way to the next entrance. Kevin Stiffler, who’s now a Lee Likes Bikes coach, demonstrates perfect vision.

Team teaching: I lecture. Kevin rails.

Great vision on the entrance.

Great vision on the exit.

Is it even legal to rail this hard? Coach Kevin digs in.

Pushing into the belly of the berm. See the tires drifting just a bit?

OK, so you get real low, like this …

Acting crazy. Also talking about the importance of upper body pull and lower body push. Check out the F6.

Nice form in the rollers.

If you’re Enduro-ing for real, you gotta stay super low so you can get on the ground and lay down the power ASAP.

Yep! Nice drop by Paul.

Valmont Bike Park: Not a bad place!
