Coaching VTT

2020 first public dates for our mountainbike coaching sessions and e-bikes in the Swiss Alps are published.

Each year, hundreds of practitioners join us on the paths and tracks of Valais bikeparks to significantly improve and secure their riding. These coaching sessions are aimed at all levels, and everyone will find the advice and exercises necessary to quickly reach a higher level. The dates of our coaching courses are offered in the form of groups of consistent level, and are specific according to your practice,  MTB or e-MTB.

Why do you need an MTB caoch?

When you practice mountain biking, it is not always obvious for some practitioners that you need a mountain bike coach. And yet, using an MTB instructor to coach you is essential for rapid progress. An external expert eye will quickly guide you on the essential points to improve and will suggest specific exercises to work on your postion and your dynamics. A few hours of coaching is enough to easily jointly develop the physiological, psychological, physical and biomechanical approach.

MTB Coaching

Our group lessons take place mainly in bikepark to take advantage of the ski lifts, while evolving on progressive, fun and secure routes. In less than a day, thanks to our solid experience in the field of mountain bike piloting coaching, we allow beginners perfect to learn the requirements of enduro and downhill mountain biking, to be able to tackle a blue track, see red for the most gifted in less than a day, and this with total control and a perfect understanding of the management of the position to be adopted, the management of braking and reports or anticipation.

More advanced practitioners, regular mountain bikers or fierce competitors will also have the leisure to discover new perspectives in their practice. Jumps, tight pins, noseturns, manuals or crossings.

So don't wait any longer to progress and tackle your favorite mountain bike trails with more speed, control and flow, and book your mountainbike coaching session without delay.

Coaching E-Bike

Dedicated to the use of E-Bikes, our specific eMTB coaching is perfect for any practitioner who wishes to evolve to understand all the requirements specific to the practice of mountain biking in assisted version. To do this, we have various training grounds on which our coaches and E-Bikes instructors will help you draw the full potential of your e-MTB's motorization, opening up new perspectives for your next ebike outings.

In the same way as mountain bike coaching, our electric mountain bike coaching sessions respond to both beginners and expert practitioners. For those who wish to learn electric mountain biking in French-speaking Switzerland and who do not yet have their own E-Bike, we offer the rental of recent and high-performance electric mountain bikes to taste the joys of this new practice and convince, if it is not already the case, that the practice of eBike is simply brilliant.
