After the success of last year's event, the AMBC crew are again heading down to Wingello for a fantastic XC skills weekend. Incorporating a series of training sessions and rides with our great team of instructors, this weekend will provide you with the opportunity to improve your riding skills in a social & relaxed environment. On offer will be a range of sessions targeted at improving your riding on both singletrack and trails in the Wingello region.

As we want to make this weekend for everyone, families are welcome to come along as well. For $100 per non-rider and $50 per child (under 14), we can also cater for non-riding family members!

So, if you're the type of person who likes to keep learning and keen to improve your riding to take it to the next level, this camp is for you !

This weekend we be all about you, and we will be running sessions targeted at a range of levels. Some of the things we'll cover in both novice and intermediate/advanced levels:

~ Rocky and loose riding

~ Line choice
~ Cornering - types and techniques
~ Obstacles and jumps
