Haters gonna hate. Haters gonna be tempted to say they weren t haters now because Aaron Gwin is back.

While we might not know what Aaron Gwin's race plans are for 2024, we do know that he recently purchased Windrock Bike Park and that he'll be coaching alongside Todd Schumlick at these two bike camps in April. Gwin has trained with Todd Schumlick for for 11 years and Barelli has trained with Schumlick for the past 3 years.

The first PerformX MTB Training Camp is at Windrock Bike Park, Tennessee from April 12 - 14, 2024 and will feature on-bike coaching with Aaron Gwin, while the second camp will be in Squamish/Whistler, British Columbia from April 23 - 25, 2024 and will feature on-bike coaching with Aaron Gwin & Yoann Barelli.


Warning shots were fired last time out in Lenzerheide but it appears something is once again clicking for Aaron Gwin. Will we see true Gwizzard form in the US or legendary Sainte Anne

 That's a very reasonably priced opportunity to get some 1st-class instruction.

 couldn't think of better coaches. this rules. Never met Yoann, but I met Gwin at windham in 2015 and he was the nicest guy. Autographed my cooler, talked with us for a bit. His mechanic even let us squish his Demo around in the pits too. All around great rider, great role model and ambassador of the sport. Guy deserves everything he's got.

That same day, I also gave Ratboy a post race Yuengling, and Bernerd Kerr gave me a set of Maxxis mud tires he was going to throw out.

AND I got to see Missy Giove put down a lap Smile Great times!

 Gwin changed the game, at his best those legendary runs can never be topped. Can't wait to see his program for 2024, on the right bike, day and track I know he's got a couple more wins in him.

 That is a VERY reasonably priced training camp for what you’re getting out of it.

What bike is he riding though? That’s what we want to know.

 Pretty neat. 12 riders is a big group with a potentially very wide skill/fitness spectrum though? But I guess if Aaron and yoann are both there and it's more like 2x groups of 6, it's not bad.
I guess they also explain in the sign up process roughly what baseline skill and fitness level is expected. I assume this is meant for riders already functioning at a pretty high level.

 Great to see Gwin and Yoann teaching together. What a cool combo, both offering different riding style experience. Not a bad deal for three days with these guys.
