MTB RIDING SKILLS WORKSHOP
We are Austrias first mountain bike school - since 1999!
That's how long we've been fine-tuning our riding technique lessons, constantly adapting our concept to new findings, developing new teaching strategies and continuing our education.
Kurt Exenberger, head of the Bike Academy, trains his guides himself and makes sure that they always remain on the "wheel of time", working on their riding technique and teaching methodology.
Your personal trainer adapts the content and methodological steps exactly to you. This private technical training you can also book for a group of up to 8 people per coach in the desired period.
Our intensive group course, takes place every Monday from May to September and is offered in 2 levels. The training lasts 4 hours and will be analyzed on screen during the session.
Ride & Learn
Ride & Learn combines a two-hour riding technique training with a guided tour in the afternoon
where you can try out what's been learned, under the guidance of an instructor.
Technical training for e-biker
Especially e-bikers need skills training. Why? Electrically driven, you get easily into the mountains and do not need this much experience and fitness. But how do you get back down? Pedelecs or electric bikes are heavier and push the brakes more often. They are not ideally equipped for rides on steep slopes or even singletracks. Therefore, it takes a basic knowledge of technical riding skills to safely come back down to the valley.
With us you will learn the basics in a safe environment with educational professionals as trainers. Of course, we can also teach advanced techniques, but mostly the basics are missing.
Our training ground - OD Trails
A very important part of our courses is the new bike park in Oberndorf!
There is everything you need for an effective training! Short distances between different types of terrain and well-secured practice areas. The terrain enables us to perfectly break down all areas of MTB riding techniques into methodical steps and thus to teach riding technique safely and successfully. The park is suitable for beginners up to XC / marathon professionals.
Newcomers to the world of bike parks can gradually and safely approach small to medium jumps. Children can also let off steam while their parents can keep an eye on them.
