I'm interested in getting a group (about 4 people) to do a couple of the Mtbskills courses, trailmaster 2 and trailmaster 3.  http://www.mtbskillsclinics.co.nz/clinics.php

Looking for people about my level, good intermediate, I ride mainly cross country on grade 3 and 4 trails.  Am open to it being women only or mixed gender, either fine with me, but I'd like it to be a respectful group with any excessive egos left at home.

The thing I mainly want is to learn how to safely drop/jump off things that are a little too high to be able to roll off without smashing the chainrings.  Also how to properly/safely jump off little jumps, and how to bunny hop over things (so I don't smash my rear wheel into them and get punctures as a result). Most of that seems to be in Trailmaster 3, but there seem bits in Trailmaster 2 that it would be useful to have done first.  I've done the Phundamentals and Trailmaster1 courses which I highly recommend and it's probably best if you've already done these but if not and the level of what I want to learn seems right you could maybe talk to the mtbskills people to see if that would work.

I am in Dunedin, but am open to going to Alexandra, Wanaka or Queenstown if the trails there are better suited to teaching these skills or there are people there who are keen. 

Times that would suit me are, Waitangi day, a weekend day or if in Dunedin possibly spread over a number of weekday evenings.

Anja:  Are you in Dunedin?  Do you work for Mtbskills? Or know whom in Dunedin does?  If you do, what times/dates suit you?

Hi Lara.  I could be keen, depending on when the group decides to do it.  I am away next week, but let me know what day/days you end up going for.  I have done fundamentals and a few trail masters, but am well keen to learn more of what you speak of.  And properly.

Greg

I too would be interested. I have done Phundamentals and Trailmaster 1 and have a MTB Skills Clinic voucher which I would like to use for this.

Cool Greg and Marc, I need to work out which weekends I'm free and talk to mtbskills, but will keep in touch.  Let me know which weekend days do/don't work for you between now and May.

cya,

Lara

23rd and 30th March, 13th and 27th April work for me

Of those dates, the 27th of April or the 23rd of March work for me.  Do these still work for you Marc?  Greg?  Anyone else?  If they do, I'll see if mtbskills can run a course for us on one of those days.

My opportunities have shrunk - only the 23 March is now available.

I am sadly going to be away on March 23.  April 27 could work though.  Apologies for being the difficult one!

Unfortunately I will be away on  27 April. May's a good month for me, from the weekend of the 11th and 12th...

18th,19th, 25th or 26th of May would work for me.  If one of those works, I'll organise that day.

18th or 19th work for me. Thanks for following this through.

I've emailed mtbskills re instructor availability for the 18th or 19th of May.

Thanks for all the effort put in, Lara!  Any word back from Kashi (assuming he is the instructor)?
