Hey all, I’m excited to rock a kung fu skills session in Prescott, AZ on April 12.
Quotes from last week’s session in Phoenix:
“If any of you ever get a chance to do a skills clinic (MTB) with Lee McCormack, do yourself a favor and sign up. The guy rocks. I don’t care what your level is, beginner through seasoned pro, he will help you. And he’ll give you about 200 “Braaaaps!” throughout the course of the day, because he rocks! (Yah, he *REALLY* likes bikes too!)
I’m no DHer, very far from it.. just a roadie XC wannabe. But I’ve PRed every freakin’ local DH segment I’ve hit since Lee’s clinic a few weeks ago. By a decent margin too. Comfortably. Safely! And, I have lots more drilling to go, to really retrain my brain to do the right things instinctively (instead of constantly “thinking”). Stoked!”
I just wanted to say thanks for the clinic on Friday. I had so much fun and learned so much. You do a terrific job of teaching things in a simple digestable fashion.
A dropper has been ordered, I swapped out my [Ergon] grips to keep my hands light, and I am trying to talk my wife into a pump track in the yard (that may take some time).
I hope you enjoyed your time in AZ. Keep spreading the Fu gospel. Braaaaaappppp!
Josh gets some during our SoCal kung fu session.
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’m excited to see what Prescott has to offer.
Practicing near home at the Valmont Bike Park.
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. You should have at least decent bike control and confidence. If you’re already good, you’ll get way better.
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!
9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, April 12
I’ll tweak the program to suit the riders who attend. Here’s the basic plan.
In the morning we’ll hit core skills:
• 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.
Prescott, AZ. I will send you the exact meeting place after you register.
$300 per rider. Six riders max (plus me and a guest pro).
Use this Paypal button to pay with Paypal balance, credit card or bank account. I’ll email details before our session.
