Skills clinic at South Mountain, AZ on March 22!


Hey all, I’m excited to rock a kung fu skills session at South Mountain Park, Phoenix, AZ on March 22.

I’ll be in Arizona to train high school coaches that weekend, and I’m doing a public session on Friday.

SOLD OUT! I will be in Prescott April 12. Stay tuned for details about that session.

Your teacher
Hi I’m Lee, and I like bikes. Some things I’ve done:

• Wrote the books Mastering Mountain Bike Skills, Teaching Mountain Bike Skills, Pro BMX Skills, Welcome to Pump Track Nation, Pump Up the Base and Prepare to Pin It. (Look at the right side of this page.)

• As the skills development director for NICA, the national high school mountain bike league, I create the curriculum and teach it to riders, coaches and the coaches who teach coaches how to teach riders.

• I work with riders of all style and levels, from beginners to world champions. I do most of my coaching at home in Boulder, CO, but I’ve ridden South Mountain before, and I’m excited to rip it again.

Learn more about my teaching approach.

Who this clinic is for

Any mountain bike rider and/or racer who wants to ride smoother, safer and faster in all sorts of terrain. South Mountain can be pretty serious, so you should have at least decent bike control and confidence. If you’re already good, you’ll get way better.

Don’t be surprised if you meet a World Cup XC racer in our session!

You should be old enough to drive. Email me for exceptions.


After overcoming some trepidation, Sean nails a very steep roll-in in SoCal. On a full XC setup!

The plan
9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, March 22

I’ll tweak the program to suit the riders who attend. Here’s the basic plan.

In the morning we’ll hit core skills:

• Position
• Braking
• Cornering
• Going up and down things
• Pumping terrain

We’ll take a quick lunch break (BYOL) then we’ll apply our new skills on the local terrain.

Location
South Mountain Park. I will send you the exact meeting place after you register.

Cost
$300 per rider. Six riders max (plus me and a guest pro).

    Bummed out I missed the South Mountain clinic reservation. Just want to confirm it is still sold out. Myself plus a friend is interested.

    I’ll be checking your website for the Prescott sign-up.

    Since Jorge is interested as am I and one other, would you consider adding a second day to the South Mtn session? I cannot make the Prescott date.

    Hey Dave,

    I’m stoked you’re interested, but I am booked on both sides of the South Mountain session.

    The spring is filling up fast (thank goodness)!
