MTB TRAINING & SKILLS COACHING IN THE AUSTRIAN ALPS
Skills training takes your mountain biking to the next level
Certified mountain bike guide Tracy Anderson has developed an MTB Training program that not only works, but is fun at the same time. He has ridden in many MTB hotspots across the world. Before moving to Austria, he was riding the sandstone slabs of Moab, Utah, the stunts and wet roots of Whistler, BC, and the narrow butter-smooth singletrack of Sun Valley, Idaho. After racing his second Trans Alps Challenge, he moved to the Alps where he has ridden terrain ranging from the glaciers of the Mega-Avalanche to the steep, primitive trails of the Austrian Alps. These mountain bike experiences shaped the MTB training program used by the team at Bike Austria. Ultimately, this allows him and the Bike Austria team to motivate and inspire every kind of mountain biker through personalized skills coaching.
Applying his scientific and medical background, Dr. Anderson is up to date on all of the current research and methodology. The E-Bike skills coaching at Bike Austria incorporates the latest knowledge and technique. Dr. Anderson does much of the training himself and incorporates his knowledge of body mechanics to help ensure that your body remains ergonomic and healthy.
In addition to the MTB Training options below, we also offer intensive skills coaching camp that is filled with amazing mountain bike options in the Kitzbüheler Alps and Hohe Tauern National Park.
Your personal Bike Austria trainer will work with you to identify your weaknesses on the mountain bike. These will be improved through a customized MTB training program. Rest assured, there will be plenty of great riding built into the program.
Bike Austria offers intensive group skills coaching. The training lasts 4 hours and is great for friends, families or team building events. We will spend time on the PUMP’N’SKILLS PARK Mittersill and the local mountain bike trails.
RIDE & LEARN
Ride & Learn focuses on an enjoyable guided tour with integrated MTB training. After improving your skills at our Skills Park, the guided tour will offer up some challenging terrain where those skills can be further improved.
MTB SKILLS TRAINING FOR eBIKERS
An e-Bike workshop with a Bike Austria guide will give the tools you need to access the most spectacular terrain in the Alps. With confidence. You will soon have the technical riding skills necessary to arrive back in the valley safely, with a huge smile on your face.
Bike Austria specializes in providing the specific mountain bike skills required to safely ride eBikes. We offer 2 hour, 4 hour and Intensive MTB Training Camps that combine fantastic riding into the mix. Why? Electrically driven, you easily get high into the mountains and over your head. Do you have the skills to get back down? E-Bikes are heavier and require better braking technique to safely descend. Biking down steep trails and singletrack demand refined skills. Are you familiar with the so-called “kick”? The “kick” must be managed so that it does not occur at the wrong time or place. The certified e-Bike guides at Bike Austria can help you adjust to the demands of the e-Bike, including the strategic application of this extra power at just the right time to clear challenging sections, and how to handle the bike’s unique geometry on rough terrain.
OUR MTB TRAINING GROUND
The local mountains are our favorite training grounds, but it is helpful to have controlled terrain to enhance specific MTB skills. To achieve this, PUMP’N’SKILLS PARK Mittersill boasts a world-class mountain bike training area built by Velosolutions along with a state-of-the-art pumptrack.
