Junior Development Camp Pemberton

Registrations for the MTBA Junior Development Camp being held on 6th - 9th October at Pemberton Mountain Bike Park are now open -https://www.registernow.com.au/mtba/ERegister.aspx?E=2671

This camp is not aimed at beginner or top elite riders, but U15 and U17 juniors who already ride/ race and want to improve their skills and knowledge of mountain biking (U19 riders will also be considered). The focus is on all types of riding, as past years have seen both XC and DH riders attend.

This is a great program from Mountain Bike Australia - MTBA to help grassroots junior development in WA.
