Ed - "Warrior"

"Best money spent so far for my mountain biking hobby. I came in nervous about flat turns, came out conquering my fears."

Jerome - "Warrior"

"I loved that this clinic was only focused on cornering. It’s maybe the most important skill when riding or racing MTB. Eric is doing an amazing job at breaking it down into comprehensible key moves. Since the clinic, I beat few more new PRs! Burrito was great too!"
