The ultimate downhiller's Christmas gift! The gift that lasts a lifetime.

Give the the life long gift of skills to the downhiller in your family. Pro racers like Mitch Ropelato, Brian Buell, Joey Schusler, and passionate riders of all levels are raving about how a 3 days skills camp with BetterRide gave them the skills and confidence to reach or exceed their riding/racing goals. The rider in your family will think of you and give thanks often as he/she rides faster, smoother and more in control on trails they previously challenged them.

Here is what 2009 Pro 4x and Jr. Cat 1 Downhill  US National Champion Mitch Ropelato said in a interview in the Oct. 2009 issue of DIRT Magazine:

Dirt Mag: "You seem to be able to turn amazingly, what do you put that down to? Got any special tires on there?
Mitch Ropelato: " Ya, Gene Hamilton is to thank for that, I took is clinic last December in Bootleg Canyon and he was able to show me the correct technique I needed to pull them off."

For more reviews and to get an idea of the value of this gift visit the BetterRide skills clinic testimonial page.

We have two great winter camps coming up that will give you 4-5 months to use the drills we give you to master the skills we teach before lift service riding starts in 2011.
