Pilbara News - - Sport - Damien Muller

Perth Hills-based Rock and Roll Moun­tain Bik­ing in­struc­tors were last month in Kar­ratha de­liv­er­ing moun­tain bik­ing clin­ics.

The clin­ics of­fered the chance for rid­ers at all lev­els to gain new skills.

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

Rock and Roll head in­struc­tor Mark War­dle said with many of the spa­ces taken up by new­com­ers, the Kar­ratha moun­tain bik­ing com­mu­nity would con­tinue to grow.

This was the fifth year that Bur­rup Moun­tain Bike Club had hosted Rock and Roll Moun­tain Bik­ing and the clin­ics were a hit with lo­cal rid­ers.

Af­ter spon­sor­ing the 2015 clin­ics, ATCO Power backed up its sup­port of the lo­cal moun­tain bik­ing com­mu­nity and is once more help­ing the club pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity for com­mu­nity mem­bers to gain valu­able new skills.

The clin­ics were also made pos­si­ble with the sup­port of GCS Equip­ment Hire and Sea Rip­ple Vil­lage.

The skills clin­ics were also used to de­velop the skills fur­ther of sev­eral club mem­bers who have started on the Moun­tain Bik­ing Aus­tralia coach­ing cer­ti­fi­ca­tion process.

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

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