New book! Teaching Mountain Bike Skills
Hey all, check out the latest addition to the library of braaap:
TEACHING MOUNTAIN BIKE SKILLS: The Skills Training Manual for NICA Coaches
By Lee McCormack, with the National Interscholastic Cycling Association
Safely and methodically teach your athletes (and yourself) how to ride all terrain with greater safety and confidence.
Teaching Mountain Bike Skills publishes the methods Lee has developed while teaching thousands of riders and hundreds of coaches how to ride better — and teach others how to ride better. This book is part of the curriculum Lee has created for NICA coaches. While most coaches refuse to publish their methods, Lee knows this is a great way to spread the love and get more people stoked on our awesome sport.
The essential core skills of mountain biking are explained in never-before-seen depth. All concepts are clearly explained and shown, and useful drills and troubleshooting cues are detailed. Practicing the kung fu in this book is like taking a clinic with Lee, at fraction of the price.
Coaches and their athletes will improve their skills — and they will learn a path to mastery that lets them improve for their rest of their riding lives.
Worth it. Drills for skills from a master instructor.
I have it on my Xmas wish list for sure!
I just ordered a copy to go along with my copies of MMBSii and Pump Track Nation. As a coach of a Jr high race team which competes in a high school league, MMBSii improved my riding skills and completely changed the way I coached. I think this new book will take me to the next level. My 7th and 8th graders finished 3rd out of 13 high school teams these past 2 years (our first 2 seasons), and my kids have improved their skills thanks to Lee’s books. I only wish we could get Lee to New England to do a clinic. My team would eat it up.
You kept that one quiet! 🙂
Looks good. What’s the postage for that & Pro BMX skills sent to Australia?
