End of season coaching

Moniteur VTT Suisse

Did you spend the whole summer struggling through hairpin bends and steep sections? It's not too late to improve your mountainbiking and e-bike riding technique in Valais.

The most beautiful enduro trails are yours thanks to the Exoride MTB instructor

Throughout the coming autumn, and more if climatic affinity, we welcome you with pleasure for MTB coaching or E-Bike coaching sessions in private or in groups to work on your driving technique and become a crack of the trails for the coming season. These enduro driving lessons in Valais take place mainly in the Martigny and Orsières region and are offered on a half-day basis for specific workshops such as switchbacks, slopes, bunny hop or crossings, as well as full day for those who wish to improve their overall mastery, by taking the technique from the beginning.

Who are these mountain bike and E-bike piloting courses for?

We welcome both beginners and more advanced mountain bikers. Our courses are offered in the form of fun and progressive exercises ideal for building confidence and a clear understanding of each aspect of riding your bike. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon to receive riders sometimes with the benefit of a long experience, but who have saturated for a long time on the same obstacles, for lack of technical knowledge sufficiently sharp to pass the course. With the help of a professional mountain bike instructor , you can reach a new milestone in a day, so why deprive yourself of the expert outside eye of a mountain bike instructor?

How to register for an MTB or E-bike coaching?

To register, you can do it directly online on one of our next course dates on the specific coaching pages on our site for group courses. For private requests, you can go through our online form to book a date and explain to an MTB instructor what your current riding limitations are and what your goals are.

What equipment should you take for a coaching?

If you have a mountainbike or an E-bike suitable for practice, it is a good idea to come to your riding lesson with your own bike in order to learn directly on your equipment, Ideally, a double suspension bike with 140mm of travel allows to easily overcome all obstacles and will allow your instructor to offer you really suitable exercises. In terms of protections, an open face enduro type helmet is at least compulsory, but a full face mountain bike helmet or a removable chin bar is safer.

Knee pads, elbow pads and back protection will complement the equipment recommended by your instructor, and of course a pair of long gloves. So, are you ready to take up the challenge and improve your mountain bike technique with the valuable advice of a professional mountain bike instructor?

Do not hesitate and join us to progress quickly on the handlebars of your bike or your electric mountain bike. Hundreds of practitioners join our coaching lessons each season and are delighted with their experience.

Do not hesitate to discover their testimony on Facebook or on Google to convince yourself.
