In this groundbreaking course you'll learn...

✅ How to boost downslopes & erase upslopes

✅ Why most self-taught riders default to a limiting & sub-optimal technique 

✅ Timing & body positioning for beginner through advanced & how they differ

✅ And much more… 


You'll Also Learn The Main Reasons People Struggle With Pumping:

Most riders think they're pumping correctly, but their timing is off, and in many cases backwards! Momentum is lost & excessive effort is used - without them realizing. Don't let this be you - skilled & dynamic pumping will transform your trail riding experience.

In this course, you’re going to master the Pump Cycle Sequence to help preserve your energy, boost your speed, and increase your stability.
