Pilbara News - - Sport - Damien Muller

Rock and Roll Moun­tain Bik­ing in­struc­tors de­liv­ered a va­ri­ety of clin­ics to Kar­ratha rid­ers on Satur­day, June 11.

Six clin­ics were held over Satur­day and Sun­day, with ses­sions for be­gin­ner, in­ter­me­di­ate and ad­vanced rid­ers.

Rock and Roll head in­struc­tor Mark War­dle said many of the 50plus par­tic­i­pants were new­com­ers, mean­ing Kar­ratha’s moun­tain bik­ing com­mu­nity would con­tinue to grow.

This was the fifth year Bur­rup Moun­tain Bike Club has hosted Rock and Roll Moun­tain Bik­ing in Kar­ratha, and the clin­ics have been ex­tremely pop­u­lar with the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

ATCO Power, GCS Equip­ment Hire and Sea Rip­ple Vil­lage all sup­ported this year’s clin­ics.

A num­ber of Bur­rup Moun­tain Bike Club mem­bers used the clin­ics to get started on their Moun­tain Bik­ing Aus­tralia coach­ing cer­ti­fi­ca­tion process.

The new skills coaches will en­able the club to con­tinue sup­port­ing rider de­vel­op­ment lo­cally.

The coach­ing de­vel­op­ment was made pos­si­ble through grant fund­ing pro­vided by West­cy­cle, the peak body for cy­cling in West­ern Aus­tralia.
