PRESS RELEASE: BetterRide MTB Skills Coaching

bigquotesBest bike upgrade I ever made, I learned more in those 3 days at Bootleg Canyon than in 18 years of riding before. Thanks, Gene.
— Daniel Echeverria
Are you ready to truly upgrade your riding? You’ve spent time and energy scouring these forums to learn and probably spent a lot of money on better tires, better suspension, lighter wheels, smoother hubs with more engagement, etc. Now it’s time to invest in you!

Our BetterRide campers include 85-year-old ripper, Fred Schmidt and many Top Enduro/Downhill racers and Cross Country racers including Cody Kelly, Shawn Neer, Sue Haywood, and Mitch Ropelato.
However, most students are simply passionate riders wanting to gain confidence and have more fun.

If you want to really step up your confidence on the trail and have more fun on every ride, join me for one of my Ride Changing camps! Sign up now at www.betterride.net. Spaces are limited.

Gene has worked with Greg Minnaar 8 times as his guest coach over the last 15 years. He has learned a lot from Greg and would love to share that knowledge with you!

You will learn how to practice and eventually master the riding and mental skills that top riders depend on. Gene has spent the last 22 years coaching, learning and perfecting his proven curriculum to get you riding at your best.

bigquotesThanks Coach Gene for your time the last 3 days! Your coaching is spot on! I’m so lucky to have had the chance to spend this time learning from the most passionate mountain biker out there - one who cares about the sport and all the techniques that go into it! Total respect! That’s all I have to say! If anyone is questioning or “thinking” about signing up for his camp- DON’T, just do! Thank you Gene!
- Gretchen Wavro

You can become a much more skilled and confident rider! You may feel that certain trails are reserved for World-Class riders with more nerve or “natural talent” than you. This simply isn't true. What those World-Class riders have is more confidence in their skill set than you. You will learn the same skills Cody Kelly, Mitch Ropelato and Kialani Hines learned in their camps with me. You will also learn the drills you will use after the camp to master these skills.

You don’t need more nerve or more experience; you need to learn the correct techniques and practice them. MTB skills aren’t reserved for special people.

 I took a better ride class several years ago. It took my riding to a *much* higher skill level. Qualitatively improved my technical riding -- particularly my turning. Hands down the best way to spend mtb money.

Highly recommended.

 I'm wondering if they can teach an arthritic old man some much needed skills, teaching myself with YT vids doesn't really work well, I at least want to have skills to ride with the younger guys who leave me in their dust cloud.

 Well, my oldest student was 78 when he took my course. At 80 we finished the Leadville 100 in less than 12 hours earning him the coveted belt buckle! So yes, I can definitely help you improve! ????

 I want to = Brandon Semenuk after the course. Will I achieve this or be better than him? Thanks.
