Skills, with Katy Curd

Skills Coaching Trips with Katy Curd: 18 to 23 October and 25 to 30 October, 2018

These trips provides an encouraging, fun environment for learning and riding.

Katy Curd is a professional bike racer and skills coach. She is the 2018 British National Downhill Champion and was the 2014 Four Cross World Champion. She has an empathetic and easy-going approach.

Katy will teach you how to become a better all-round trail rider (not how to race downhill!). So, if you are an intermediate rider or above, looking to learn new skills and to increase (or restore) your mountain biking confidence, this is the trip for you. You don't need to be an expert rider already!

As Jenny Aungier said:

"I had a super time. I thoroughly enjoyed all the riding and am delighted with the progress I've made with my skills through Katy's coaching. I couldn't have hoped for a better combination. Not only that, but I've eaten like a king and had a genuinely relaxing holiday."

Katy will concentrate on these areas, but your requests are also very welcome:

  • Cornering
  • Technical terrain
  • Drop-offs
  • Line selection
  • Technical climbs
  • Technical descents
  • Overcoming obstacles
  • Bunnyhops
  • Manuals
  • Style and finesse!

The trip includes five nights' accommodation, with four days' riding.

Each morning, Pure Mountains' guides lead a ride on the awesome trails of the Sierra Nevada, with Land Rover support. The emphasis is on enjoying the riding, not competing to be the fastest up or downhill. In the afternoons, after lunch back at the farmhouse, Katy leads a skills coaching workshop in the grounds.

Each guest will also get a one to one session with Katy during the trip. She will be joining the morning rides too, giving you the chance to pick up tips and ask questions.

2018 Price:  €910 / £795 per person, including rustic-luxe farmhouse accommodation, Land Rover support, full board (except two dinners), beer and wine and Málaga airport transfers.
