This is our U13 program, designed to introduce and develop training habits in young athletes. With a focus on skill development and self motivation.
We develop tactics for racing which allow our athletes to begin competing in a fun environment. This includes the advancement of body position on the bike, cornering and advanced pressure management skills.
Mental expansion comes in the form of strategy and line choice direction.
As a competition based program, we will be racing at all Phat Wednesday races and Kids/Crankworx events. Race support for this level will be included in the program fee and will be during scheduled training.
Participants are required to meet a minimum riding standard and must reach out via email with a brief application before being accepted into the program.
Spring after school and/or weekend program will run April,May,June
Summer program, 2 Weekdays July,August
Fall after school and/or weekend program will run September, October (weather dependent)
This is our U18 and U15 program, designed as a stepping stone to participate in regional and national level races.
We have designed specific sessions to facilitate development of fitness and the skills necessary for competition.
Riders can choose to specialize in Enduro or Downhill primarily. Training will cross over between disciplines and all Athletes should race outside of their chosen specialty too.
Our coaches break down key techniques into individual movement patterns. This will create efficient autonomy when it comes to race day.
Participants of the Instinct Racing program are expected to participate in either the CNES or BC cup/Canada cup series races, as well as Crankworx.
Race support for the Whistler BC cup and all Crankworx events is included in the registration costs.
Participants of Instinct Racing must register for race support at any other BC cups they attend in order to join in with team training and use their coaches as resources during the event.
Our race support is a crucial part of our program and gives athletes the opportunity to bounce ideas and concerns off of their coaches. We aim to provide the highest level of athlete support with a minimum of 2 coaches attending each event.
We also provide mechanical assistance and can help with basic spares. However, Athletes are responsible for providing spare components such as tires, wheel, suspension etc.
