    Frequently Asked Questions

    Why should I take your advice?

    Because it works and has been proven to win races. My instructional style isn't for everyone, but I guarantee that if you really don't learn anything we will refund 100% of your clinic cost. 

    Am I qualified to take this clinic?

    Two distinct clinics - 

    Competitive Athlete: Athletes that race regularly in expert or pro class.  


    Active Athlete: Athletes that have competed or plan to race, who train regularly and have logged over 3,000 mountain miles.

    Do I need to sign a waiver?

    Yes. You do.

    What if I didn't get an email confirmation?

    Check your junk or spam email folder. If you really didn't get a confirmation email after booking please contact us at mtbcornering@ericgasser.com

    What happens if I can't attend my scheduled clinic?

    That would suck! You can cancel your clinic up to 5 days prior to the scheduled date for a full refund. Within the 5 day window you can reschedule your clinic for another date without penalty. 

    What happens if I get hurt during the clinic?

    We will follow appropriate First Aid protocols.  Your safety is our top priority. 

    What do I need to bring?

    Bike, repair kit (for flats), elbow/knee pads, water and anything you need to be comfortable and self-sufficient. Hoping others have what you need is not a strategy. Be prepared to get acquainted with the ground. Pads are not required but are recommended.

    Should I pack food?

    Yes.  Please bring plenty of water and any snacks, energy bars, or other boosts you need to get through the day.  Alcohol is not permitted at any time during the class.  Don't be an idiot.
