 Event Description
MTB summer camp for ages 12-18, June 8-16. All ability levels from Beginner to Expert are eat one camp; rides will split as needed. The Expert rides are set up more as a training camp where riders will do a lot of riding and training during the week, this is also open to Sport level riders who should be racing Ex. Attendees prefer this format rather than our previous format of classroom heavy learning. The fitness gains from this week of training will carry you to new levels. If you are racing the Beginner (Base) class then you likely will not have the fitness/endurance/speed that theExpert racers have, so will enjoy the targeted rides. Expert (cat 1) rides are typically 2-3 hours per day with the 7-day total being around 14-16 hours. This is a training camp, so expect a little suffering and sore legs. Participants should be highly motivated and ready to go each day. This will be more boot-camp than previous camps. The Beginner/Sport Camp is open to anyone with the ability and motivation to ride 6 consecutive days at 1.5-2 hours per, with a long ride extending past 3 hours possibly. These are camps put on by CycleYouth staff, but are open to any racer or mtb'er on any team able to ride with the group. Most Sport/Ex campers are very fast Sport level racers. over age 16. Rides will range from 2 to 3 hours long, and some days will have two-a-dayers where we ride in the morning and also the afternoon. On the long days we will offer shorter options for any not feeling up to the task, and may opt for a longer ride depending on the group, or may join the shorter rides. A few rides will be combined. The area's Forest are a beautiful riding location nestled in the Blue ridge mountains. The area is hilly and mountainous, so we will be riding rolling terrain one day and mountainous the next. Early morning activities include strength and conditioning training and other off-bike training related interest. The Beginner/Sport camp includes racers of this ability level, and some non-racers who have the fitness and endurance to complete the rides with the group. This is not a camp for those interested in beginning mountain bike, however. The fitness needed to complete the rides can only come from riding a bike (not running, swimming, or other sports). Generally those who do well are riders who currently ride 3-4 days per week for 1-2 hours on each ride. One-day-a-week riders will not be able to keep up with the group. General fitness, proficiencies in other sports, motivation and determination are of no help for a non-cyclist or a cyclist that rarely rides. The camps intent is to help cyclist jump to the next level both in fitness and in skills. Many other areas of discussion will be covered to help create a well-rounded cyclist. Skills are hands on at the cabin or on the trails while instruction is a laid-back conversation style. For those interested we will offer a more structured discussion on training. We will skip the science and go directly to what matters in training. We will cover skills as in the past but more emphasis will be on training. We will discuss proper bike care and go over basic bike maintain and repair during optional instruction time. Riders will learn the basics of the training method and begin to understand the intricacies of race preparation, execution, nutrition and how training works. Campers will enjoy the good life with excellent trails and rides led by local residents and other camp staff. This camp was formerly part of the USA Cycling camp system. This camp will be the same successful format developed for that camp, just with more appropriate goals. This camp can still serve as a qualifier for the USAC camp. Food and lodging included. Campers only need gear and possibly some bedding. Early arrival, and transportation from Atlanta can be arranged. Airport pickup can also be arranged from Greenville/Spartanberg or Asheville Int.
