2018 Tri The Dirt Bear Mountain

Inaugural TRI THE DIRT triathlon camp – Bear Mountain Resort April 27-29, 2018





Tri the Dirt Triathlon Camp
After 22 years of racing mountain bikes, road racing, triathlon and XTERRA/offroad triathlon (or cross tri which is the multisport description), I am super excited to offer my first triathlon training camp dedicated to the off road discipline.  I am drawing from my experience as former Canadian National team cross country mountain bike racer, XTERRA pro with over 50 professional victories including five World titles, and six time Ironman 70.3 Champion to bring you TRI THE DIRT – the ULTIMATE OFFROAD TRIATHLON CAMP.



TRI THE DIRT is for:

  1. The fresh faced beginner new to triathlon racing who has decided offroad is the coolest
  2. The seasoned Ironman veteran who is looking to try something a lot more fun
  3. The tri-curious mountain biker who is secretly coveting the ability to swim and run and is ready to come out and race
  4. The expert XTERRA racer who wants to dominate the top step of the podium
  5. Athletes that want to go have the most amazing, killer, train-cation on SWEET SWEET westcoast trails!*

*must be willing to learn some awesome new skills in the process


I am excited to partner with former pro mountain bike athlete and master technical skills coach Adam Walker of The Cycling Co to offer hands-on mountain bike skills coaching which really sets this event apart from any other triathlon camp in the world.

Our goal is to make you more confident in your riding skills and help you master the world famous west coast single track trails.  TRI THE DIRT is an opportunity to learn the skills honed in Victoria, BC that developed the #1 women’s mountain bike team in the world (for over 20 years!)  In addition to riding skills, TRI THE DIRT is about executing an excellent off road race and what  training to dominate the trails both on the bike and run.

The cornerstone of a great offroad race is excellent riding but it is still a triathlon.  We will help you navigate the swim, bike and run where you maximize your strengths and build on your weaknesses.  We will touch on all aspects of off road racing.

The camp is suitable for ALL LEVELS.  TRI THE DIRT is your opportunity to improve by teaching you when you are comfortable, confident, and relaxed!

The only restriction is this camp is 18 and over –  stay tuned for the kids version in the future!

Camp fees are $399 plus GST —> $418.95.  There is an athlete LIMIT!  Refunds up to two weeks in advance but you can transfer your registration to someone else if you can’t make it.  First signed up gets the spots and once we are sold out.. that is it.

Also we have CUSTOM TRI THE DIRT CAMP JERSEYS and BOCO hats!! Woohoo.. thank you Champion System.  We will provide a link when the store is live.

Thank you very much for checking in with us!  Adam and I are excited about TRI THE DIRT and are confident this is the best triathlon camp in the world.  The stoke is high.

Sign up follows along with the itinerary for the camp.  Athletes need Tri BC memberships on that weekend and can sign up for membership through MelRad racing (with a $5 discount cha-ching!).  Athletes not from BC – details on how to buy a two day event membership is available.

There is the option to use an Interac email transfer instead of using Paypal.. just contact me to use that option and I will provide you with a receipt!
