MTB 301: This builds on the MTB 201 and having familiarity with our verbiage is key. Combining 201 & 301 will get you close to 90+ min of jumping. 

Topics Covered: 


– Rider Specific Control Setup

– Suspension Setup: Sag, Rebound, Compression settings 


– Turning Matrix: Varying surfaces, increasing and decreasing radius, pre turn obstacle management (approx 45 min) 

– Drop Progression: Height increases, speed decreases, and implements get added (approx 35 min)

– Lift Progression: Lift heights grow, as does the complexity (approx 35 min) 

– JUMPING: Riders build confidence with more reps on multiple takeoffs and increasing distances (approx 45-55 min) 

JUMP Session:

This event is all about getting comfortable in the air. That starts with a solid understanding of what it takes to get into the air properly. It’s also critical to get as MANY reps as possible in a controlled environment and that’s what the TRS ground school setting gives you. Please be sure you have a solid base for this class. It IS NOT recommended for new riders. There is quite a bit that comes before jumping a bike and the 201 and 301 provide that. 

Our Pro level coaches break down the dynamics involved with jumping a bike. Based on over 70 years experience, they guide you through their real world experience and give you key insight and cues on what to do and also what not to do. The 4 to 1 rider to coach ratio guarantees a high level of personal attention.

After showcasing the proper technique, you’ll work through a series of reps and the distance will incrementally increase as your comfort level increases. Analysis and feedback using slow motion video will have you “busting big” in no time.

There’s no substitute for experience when it comes to jumping a bike. The only problem is that experience in the right setting can be hard to come by. You’ll get well over a 100+ reps on our jump lines and receive valuable feedback in the moment.

Are you ready to take your jumping to the next level?

– Experience jumping
– Full suspension bikes with suspension in working order
– Full safety gear including pads (Full Face helmet not required, but suggested)

This class is intended for riders with jump experience and will move at a specified pace. Coaching staff reserves the right to hold riders to pre determined distances based on performance.

Please reach out if you are unsure if this class is a proper fit for you
