Riders Rock and Roll thanks to skills clinics
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.
