    MTB Skills Course

    Dear All,

    New to the Forum so apologies if this has already been discussed or covered.

    I am looking for a MTB skills course (preferable in October/November). I am a very experienced road rider but have just been doing MTB for the last two years on a self taught approach :-) I would like to cover the basics and some advance technique for XC - All Mountain disciplines and, maybe, have a taste of downhill.

    I am flexible in terms of location (based in Europe but can travel), price and ideally I would like to spend a week riding to properly learn the technique.

    Any tips?

    Thanks in advance,

    There are quite a few out there, at least in the US and Canada. Here's one: http://www.dirtseries.com/

    Surely someone from Europe will be able to chime in with something closer...

    Thanks for the reply. There seems that the great majority of those (http://www.dirtseries.com/) are women only...and even though I would love to participate...:-) I am a man :-)

    Anything in October/early November? As I said, I can pretty much fly anywhere for a couple of weeks...so I guess that that excludes Australia/New Zealand...

    Thanks in advance,

    Itnas, a while ago I looked into going to Whistler and doing a skills course with http://www.zeptechniques.com. For bike skills alone, they look really good, and Whistler is obviously an awesome riding destination.
    Ended up rather doing MBLA (http://www.britishcycling.org.uk/sco...-cycling-smbla) which is more for people who want to lead/guide in Europe and is much more comprehensive - not only focussed on bike skills alone, so probably not what you're looking for.

    Cheers
