Greg Minaar to Coach BetterRide Downhill Camp at Northstar, CA July 6-8


World Champion Greg Minnaar is teaming up with Gene Hamilton of BetterRide for a three day downhill mountain bike camp July 6-8 at Northstar Resort at Lake Tahoe. This is an amazing opportunity to learn from the most experienced coaches in the sport and a World Champion, 3 time World Cup Overall Champion and 2012 World Cup Round 1 winner. Sign up soon as this camp is limited to 14 riders to ensure the optimal athlete to coach ratio (the last BetterRide Camp at Northstar sold out in 10 days!)

It will be the best investment you have ever made in your mountain biking (according to our students). Here is what 2009 Pro 4x and Jr. Cat 1 Downhill US National Champion Mitch Ropelato said in a interview in the Oct. 2009 issue of DIRT Magazine:

Dirt Mag: “You seem to be able to turn amazingly, what do you put that down to? Got any special tires on there?
Mitch Ropelato: ” Ya, Gene Hamilton is to thank for that, I took is clinic last December in Bootleg Canyon and he was able to show me the correct technique I needed to pull them off.”

Designed for downhill racers and riders, this Downhill Camp focuses on the core skills that the BetterRide coached pros use, as well as mental preparation and FUN.

When: July 6-8, 2012
Where: Northstar Resort at Lake Tahoe
Who: 14 lucky riders
