The MTB season is about to start “for real” (some areas have been open since early June) in the Portes du Soleil. The Pass’ Portes (big event where 5500 riders will ride a loop around the area and eat a lot of cheese!) is the opening date for the whole area and… it’s this weekend! Come and discover Europe’s biggest mountain biking area and improve your technique at the same time… see you soon!

Jo has been appointed to coach for the Châtel Mtb club this summer alongside Seb Giraldi and Ben Walker, exciting times!

New this year, you can join a skill session for half a day (3h).

The sessions are focused on downhill technique (flat corners, berms, roots, steps, jumps, etc…), are open to all levels and will help you ride with more control, more safely and… have more fun! To guarantee the best learning environment, the groups are limited to 6 riders and are compiled according to riding level (check your level here).

The forthcoming sessions are advertised online (“Skill session calendar” on the right of this page), please feel free to contact us if you can’t see something that suits you.

I will be in England from the 18th to the 28th of October, the good people of TrailJunkies (Oxfordshire) are taking the oppotunity to organise some skill sessions. Are already planned the 19th/24th for beginners and the 20th/25th for intermediate, I am also available for private tuition. Contact monica@trailjunkies for more information.

The Dirtgirls are back! Every summer FlowMTB organises at least one week for girls only (apart from me!). We had great weather with scorching hot temperatures and a lot of fun… I’ve never had so many friends in the lift queues! Well done girls, great week!
