About the Event

Info for Riders

Thanks for checking out this coaching session. This is suitable for riders age 12 -14 who can ride machine made trails but who are looking for confidence on more natural features.

**Each session is aimed at specific ages of riders and acceptance of entries will be made after a verification of the riders age. Please allow a couple of days to her back.**

As part of the Scottish Cycling team's aim to increase the numbers of young racers and cyclists each region holds regular discipline specific training for riders aged 8 and above.

The aim of these XC sessions is to prepare for the XC season or races within that season and to prepare riders for the eventual step up to national training groups & advanced recreational riding.

As riders get older the sessions shift from very informal "come & try" type sessions up to race specific sessions. Initially there is no expectation that riders participating in these sessions will take part in races but I do hope some of them go on to take part in the National RACE programme and perhaps compete at the highest level.

Each XC session will have a technical element and a physical element so riders should be prepared to ride whatever the prevailing weather but should carry enough spare clothing to stay warm in the event of an emergency. If you cannot come with all the items on the kit list for any given week please contact your regional XC coach (Chris Bryant) in advance of the session to see about borrowing some equipment. Unfortunately you must bring your own mountain bike.

Each rider participating will need to fill out an annual consent form and notify the coach of any changes to those details before any training.
