Tri The Dirt is a OFF-ROAD triathlon training camp with Melanie McQuaid
The camp runs from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon with full days on Saturday and Sunday. The first camp in April is at Bear Mountain and includes the fabulous Adam Walker of The Cycling Co. Adam brings a wealth of mountain bike skills experience to this camp making our mountain bike sessions amazing.
Whether you are a beginner who is just starting your adventures on the dirt or a veteran looking to find more free speed TRI THE DIRT is the camp for you! This is a NON COMPETITIVE skills based camp. This is not about smashing yourselves with exertion, it is about mindful improvement through better execution. Everyone will improve and will swim/bike/run/transition at their level. The learning environment is positive, fun, and confidence building. NO ONE GETS DROPPED and NO ONE FEELS LIKE THEY ARE WAITING!
This camp is skills based, so all of the training will be focused on technique and every athlete learns from the level they are at.
The camp will start with a pool session. Sighting, turns, pack swimming, and swimming in a wetsuit are covered.
Then there will be a run clinic on AGILITY and UP/DOWNHILL running. Mountain bike skills clinics will start with the basics and we will progress to some common maneuvers that incorporate all of the skills.
Also included in the camp will be a session on nutrition, transitions, and a tech session on suspension and tires.
You learn skills to tackle whatever your race schedule is throwing at you – roots, rock rolls, hills, and tight corners. All of these obstacles require nailing the basic skills of mountain biking and some good run technique. Mountain bike skills are the main focus of the camp but skills for swimming and running are also addressed.
Three days with 5x World Champion Melanie McQuaid will equip you with the knowledge of how to train to be better at off-road triathlon.
Lunch will be provided!
