Girls week 2015

We are very excited to announce that we will be running our girls training week this September after the success of our last few years camps.  Over the last three years these weeks have been a great opportunity for female mountain bikers to improve skills, make new riding buddies and gain confidence in an idyllic alpine setting.

Hands up who is having fun.

It is great to see that year after year the girls have stayed in touch, continue to ride together and gained confidence to compete and do well in Enduro races.  Many have come back to visit us for more, bringing their other halves and friends to sample the amazing trails on offer.

Never a bad view.

In 2015 our full time guide and mountain bike coach Anja Rees-Jones will be heading up the coaching with help from Bike Verbier’s owner and guide Lucy and life coach Elaine France.

Cross my palm with silver and I will tell your future.

Using her experience of world cup dh racing, qualifications as an ICP coach and her amazing mechanic skills, Anja will be taking charge of providing personal instruction on everything from downhill and technical riding through to cycling fitness, general bike handling and all-mountain riding skills.  Elaine will work with our mental blocks to find our flow on and off the trail.

Pink grips are optional.

Assessment at the start of the week will ensure that training is progressive, pressure-free and carefully tailored to the skills and ambitions of those taking part.

Women’s Week starts on September 12th 2015, and places are limited to 10 guests in total. Participants should have an intermediate or advanced skill level and a good level of fitness before joining the group, as well as being comfortable riding singletrack.

Like she just stepped out of a salon.

Comments from past guests.

The Bike Verbier guides were brilliant as they led the way down the trails at our pace and at the same time encouraging us to think about choosing better lines. If you’re considering the skills week I’d say don’t hesitate, it’s a no brainer. Like me, your riding and confidence will definitely improve and you’ll leave with more girly biking mates, invaluable!” Sarah.C

“Thank you all for this fantastic week. I will be going home ready to face steep descents.  Thank you for your patience during the coaching sessions and out on the trail.  A highly recommended week”. Elli
