    Mountain bike jumping skills clinic March 23rd

    Have you always wanted to hit jumps on your mountain bike but aren't comfortable because you lack the skill or courage? Are you already a dirt jumper but want to step up your game and hit some tricks? Well now is your chance to learn how to fly (on a bike ). It doesn't matter if you're a beginner or a seasoned rider who wants to improve their jumping skills, because Gravity Pirates Racing is holding a jump clinic. That's right, our team riders, including Pro class rider Dave Seaquist, will be there to coach you and help you expand your boundaries. We will help you increase your skill level, comfort in the air, body positioning, gauging speed, and most of all, having fun. So if you want to play in the dirt, come out to the Rainbow trails on Saturday with your bike. BTW, this is a PAY to play ($30) clinic and will be limited to the first 20 riders who pay.




    You need to RSVP to badkitty@gravitypirates.us then you will receive the info on how to pay and further details regarding the clinic.




    Check-in is at 10 am.

    FYI: NO BEGINNER RIDERS. This clinic is NOT to teach you the basics of riding a MTB. You can be a beginner jumper, but you CANNOT be a beginner rider. You’ll need to know the basics of riding a mountain bike or BMX bike. If you are not comfortable riding your MTB, this clinic is not for you.

    This will be at the Rainbow Canyon trails in Rainbow, Ca. It is just north of San Diego.



    Team rider Ryan Mcwitch




    Pro rider Dave Seaquist whippin it out!

    Who the hell doesn't have Facebook?!


    (oh, wait . . . thats right, I don't!)


    I'd be into this for sure. As a kid, I LOVED jumping, and I used to be into it on my MTB as well . . . but a few years ago, I hit a jump to flat, landed off-camber and fractured 3 ribs as a result. Since then I've been pretty timid about ramped jumps. Small drops/ledges are great fun, and I love catching air off bumps on the descent, but a ramped jump scares me.

    How about something in the LA Area? Or maybe at Mammoth?
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    You'd be surprised how many people still don't use facebook, bit I digress. I will suggest doing clinics in other areas, we have a lot of members in LA as well.



    BTW, the clinic is now full.
    Come find us on Facebook, Gravity Pirates Racing!
