"The education and practice this course has provided me with has changed my whole riding style. I will never look at a turn the same way again."
"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!"

"Great training focused on cornering, it allowed me to hone in on one specific area where I could get a lot of return on investment!"
"Eric is extremely knowledgeable and personable, allowing the skills taught to be accessible to all experience levels."
"Eric is a MTB whisperer! His laid back style combined with his direct and honest feedback, create and environment where you can learn what's possible on your bike. If you want to get faster, go see Eric!...iPad review was money!"
"If you want to ride faster and safer take this clinic!"
