Mountain Bike Gravity Team

BBSEF Mountain Bike Gravity Team

The Mountain Bike Gravity Team is designed for those riders 11-17 who want to increase their descending skills to prepare them for NICA, Downhill races, Enduro races, Super D races, or for those who just want to become a safer and better overall descender and technical rider. We will give the riders the tools they need to become comfortable racing and descending through coach evaluations, drills, and endurance rides, showing riders how to do track walks where they will be able to break down courses or sections of trail into manageable sections, prepare them for races with mock races throughout the season and push the riders out of their comfort zone in a safe learning environment.
