Shredders from Colombia

Jorge and Diego came from Bogota, Colombia to dial in their MTB skills.

We had two great sessions at Valmont Bike Park in Boulder, CO.

These guys have been studying the books Mastering Mountain Bike Skills and Teaching Mountain Bike Skills, so they already had a good base.

In six hours over two days, we worked on:

• Advanced cognitive model of shred
• Ultra-dialed position, with hip alignment
• Stopping on a dime (10 pesos?)
• Pumping turns for traction and speed
• Pumping the h— out of rollers and then rocks!
• Dropping with ease
• Jumping smooooooothly

As fun as mountain biking has been for these guys, they are rolling into a whole new level of fun and Flow.

Diego and Jorge: Tired but stoked at the end of a three-hour Lee workout.

The mountains near Bogota have lots of rocks. We were sure to apply pump track skills to boulders. Jorge gets it done.

Diego nails some rocky backside.

Jorge: “I have always dreamed about jumping, but I never thought I could do it.”

I’m stoked to help you guys. Thanks for coming out!
