Is this clinic (level 3) suitable for you?

You will already have a considerable amount of MTB experience and regularly cycle on trails in Zuid-Limburg or in the Eifel / Ardennes. We will introduce you to new settings to help develop your skills and push your limits. We will discuss your progress by way of photo & video analysis.

Anyone can participate in the training at their own level and pace. Your technique is more important than the kilometres you cover. The challenge is all in the drills!
