Kevin and Amy Shenton rocked a Level 1 public clinic at Valmont Bike Park. Riders said:

“Kevin, you and Amy knocked it out of the park today with your instruction. I now see where many of my faults were…I had gotten terribly sloppy and would never had noticed if not for this camp.

“Yes, Kevin and Amy…I will work on dropping my right heel!

“Thank you for a great two hours!”

Terry Jones


“First and foremost Kevin and Amy did a fantastic job! Super friendly and super knowledgeable. They should wear capes with a big LLB on it. I got a lot more out of the Skill Clinic Level 1 than I would have imagined. Looking forward to Skill Clinic level 2 in a couple of weeks! I have not had this much fun since that first day I learned how to ride a bike. It feels very much the same with what you get out of this class!”
