PRESS RELEASE FROM DIRT SERIES:
*Dirt Series by Rocky Mountain Bicycles
Dialed In and Going Big in 2008*
More camps and more locations from Whistler’s most popular export
In April, North America’s premier traveling mountain bike skills instruction program takes to the road for its eighth season. This year, the Dirt Series by Rocky Mountain Bicycles offers an unprecedented nineteen women’s-only and co-ed mountain bike camps in destinations like Sun Valley, Southern California, Park City, North Vancouver, and the Dirt Series home base of Whistler.
Founded in 2001 with the singular vision of getting more women more excited about mountain biking, the Dirt Series is unique in the distance it travels to deliver professional programming and world-class instruction. Since its start, it has energized communities throughout Western Canada and the US, added in co-ed and specialty camps, and empowered over 4,000 individual participants.
The sport of mountain biking has progressed enormously since the Dirt Series’ foundation and a constant commitment to instructor training and curriculum development has allowed the Dirt Series to offer a program that remains at the cutting edge of the sport. The camps offer an accessible and exhilarating environment for riders from novice to expert, from 17 to 70, aerobic divas and gravity goddesses alike.
â€œOur camps are all about helping people take those first steps in technical mountain biking, or moving them up from one step to the next,â€ says Candace Shadley, founder of the innovative and critically acclaimed program. â€œWe offer an environment in which people can tailor their camp to their particular interests, learn at their own pace, and have a great time in the process.â€
Each two-day camp offers small-group skill sessions, instructional rides to practice new techniques, and a wealth of opportunities to demo equipment from the program’s elite-level industry sponsors. Several locations also feature Rocky Mountain team athletes as guest coaches, adding to the Dirt Series’ reputation for both star-power and supportive mentored instruction.
Fantastic trails and a blueprint for learning, development, and success make the Dirt Series a weekend that can’t be missed. For complete details, as well as a list of 2008 dates and locations, visit www.dirtseries.com
