Whistler Mountain Bike Coaches Hiring Camp – Week 2
This week has been all about learning to coach, specifically the IDP Tech 2. Our trainees started with an in-depth look at coaching progressions and where to take riders once they have progressed beyond the beginner level! The focus of the IDP 2 has been on increasing their knowledge of the Bike Park and which trails to choose for which level of rider. Everybody had a great day on Tuesday; analysing different line choices on ‘Upper Joyride’ and ‘Ninja Cougar’, with some interesting lines being suggested and demonstrated!
Similarly to last week the guys and girls also spent a bit of time in the car park working on technique. This weeks ‘Car Park Session’ involved a blind triple slalom which got pretty heated and was followed by coaching sessions without words, which was harder for some than others!
Next week we’ll be stepping it up another level, in preparation for IDP A-Line 2. This Friday is an introduction to Advanced level jumps, drops and cornering, followed by a pump track session we’ve got planned for the evening. It’s gonna be sweet!
