March 8, 2010
Get your summer sorted and make 2010 the year to progress with 6 days of riding, training & tips with Nigel Page and Ed Oxley.
Riding 13 – 18th July. Staying at St Jean d’Aulps, near Morzine in the Portes du Soleil area (arrive 12th depart 19th July).
Former World Cup rider, 2007 World DH Masters Champion and current ChainReactionCycles/Intense team manager is on hand to ‘show and tell’ how much fun you can get out of riding your bike in the awesome Portes du Soleil.
Runs ‘Great Rock’ the successful mountain bike skills company and will bring his relaxed and patient approach along with his passion for bikes and riding.
Our week of alpine adventure will be based at the superb Chalet JoJo (see www.winterandsummer.com for details) Less than 1 hour from Geneva airport.
Cost for group riding everyday, accommodation, breakfast, evening meal and skills input will be £660 per person. Flights and lift pass are an additional charge.
This week is for you if you want to get more out of your mountain biking, by developing new skills and riding amazing singletrack trails and downhill tracks in a spectacular alpine environment. You need to be a confident mountain biker with a reasonable level of fitness to get the most out of the trip. You don’t need to be a riding god, but you do need some experience of descending and hopefully you will develop as a better rider who will take new skills and more confidence home with you. The group will be a maximum number of 12.
We’ll be making extensive use of video which we will watch back at the chalet to spot bad habits and chart the progress to being a better rider.
Suitable for All Mountain and Downhill bikes (cross country bikes will not be appropriate). You will need to bring full face helmets and pads.
Nigel Page has been racing bikes from the age of 10. BMX racing for 7 years and then MTB DH, Dual and 4X racing on a professional level for 6 years. So he has a lot of experience on a bike. He has also been teaching and coaching part time for the last 10 years. Here is a quote from a customer of his. “Nigel is that rare combination of awesome rider and natural teacher.”
Ed Oxley has been mountain biking in all it’s forms since back in the day. He is a regular tester and contributor to Singletrack Mountain Bike Magazine. “I’ve known Ed about a year, and in that time he’s managed to completely turn my head around with regards bike design and setup, and has got me riding stuff I never thought possible.” Brant Richards – Ragley Bikes and Nukeproof.
