Downhillers tired of arm pump? XC riders tired of jumpy bars on steep uphill and rock gardens? I don't know what you are talking about really, because I run a steering dampener! check out the newest HOPI dampener - Hopi Gravity - here!

Would you like to improve your bike handling and skills so you can have more fun on a bike, or just gain confidence in getting out on the trails? I'm certified through the International Mountain bike Instruction Certification course (IMIC) and I want to help you to build your skills with the proper technique for balance, braking, cornering, hill climbing, descending, getting over obstacles and wherever you want to go from there (ie pump track & jumping). I'm talking about proper techniques that I wish I'd been taught early on in my biking endeavors! General instruction is geared toward beginner through intermediate riders (men and women of all ages) and advanced instruction can be tailored for more experienced riders.

|I've been racing and riding mountain bikes for over 10 years including cross-country and endurance events (such as La Ruta de los Conquistadores in 2003 and podium finishes in the Wilderness 101, Wild 100 and Mohican 100). I currently race pro downhill nationally, with a top 5 pro women ranking with USA Cycling for 2012, the Gravity East Pro Women title in 2012 and the Snow Shoe Series Elite Women title in 2010 and 2012. I began officially coaching after receiving certification from World Champion Downhiller Shaums March in spring of 2010. Outside of racing, I'm loving teaching others and developing my dirt jumping skills.|| |
