May Half-Term Holiday Camps
This May half term we’re running 2 super exciting holiday camps. Firstly, we’ve got our MTB Masterclass, which we’re super excited to say will be running this year from the fantastic Sherwood Pines. Following that we’ve got our Circuit Race masterclass held at our home venue of the Doncaster Dome cycle track.
This holiday we’re running a MTB Masterclass from Sherwood pines MTB, Edwinstowe, Mansfield NG21 9JL & a Circuit Race Masterclass from the Doncaster Dome Cycle Track, Bawtry Rd, Doncaster DN4 7PD.
Sherwood MTB Masterclass
This fantastic full day camp takes place at the purpose-built Sherwood pines MTB centre, 10:00-16:00.
This brilliant location allows us to offer more than we ever have before at our
MTB camps. With trails ranging from beginner through to expert (and of course
the skills & jumps area), our coaches will be able to test riders of all
skills and abilities.
We'll start not too far from the forest café. Led by our expert coaches,
we'll use a mixture of the natural terrain & our ramps & kit
to work on some key skills and develop off-road techniques. Think bunny-hops,
manuals, wheelies, weight distribution, cornering, gear selection, starts, etc.
Our ramps and see-saws are brilliant for testing out & the riders balance
and weight distribution in a fun engaging way. We’ll also create some
competitive scenarios and see how our skills stand up under the pressure of
Again led by our coaches we'll then move out onto the trail metwork, here we'll put the skills we've learned into practice using features like technical single track, rock gardens, berms & jumps. All with the aim of further improving riders confidence, skills and technical ability.
Our May MTB Masterclass takes place on Tuesday 31/05/22 at Sherwood Pines. Ages 10-16. From 10:00-16:00 The price is £40 per person. Book here.
Circuit Race Masterclass
Our race masterclass session is the ultimate for young racers ages 10-16. sessions will be comprised of all the elements needed for riders to succeed at a National level. We’ll leave no stone unturned with activities covering warmup protocols, cornering, sprinting, climbing/descending & race tactics just to name a few. Additionally, we’ll be taking the competitive scenarios to a new level, with coach led racing, national length races, multiple stages & we’ll be including intermediate competitions + time bonus sprints as to add a new dimension to the tactics required. We’ll start off in the morning focusing mainly on improving our fundamental racing skills e.g. cornering, group riding etc. Then in the afternoon we’ll include the main coach led racing and put the skills we’ve learned earlier in the day to the test – don’t think the afternoon is all about racing though, in-between the competition we’ll continue the learning by including mini workshops on warmups, feedback, tactics etc. Our ex-professional coaches will lead this session, so youngsters will get a chance to learn from some of the best. Spending the day with us means that children get to develop new racing skills, build further on their existing ones & explore all aspects of circuit racing.
Our May Race Masterclass takes place on Wednesday 1/06/22 at the Doncaster Dome cycle track. Ages 10-16. From 10:00-16:00. The price is £40 per person. Book here.
