The cost is $499 prior to June 5 at 9 p.m. ET or $549 from June 6-8. Parents may attend for $599.

The camp will focus on skills, knowledge, development and strength, and also identify future collegiate riders. The camp is open to riders who have at least one year of training and competition experience. Beginner riders are encouraged to gain more experience prior to attending a Lees-McRae camp due to the technical and difficult terrain in Banner Elk.

Riders must bring their own mountain bike, helmet, shoes and clothing. A suitable trail bike/dirt jumper and minimum six inch travel gravity oriented bike will be required for the camp. A good fitting full face helmet, knee pads, gloves and suitable footwear will be required as well. We recommend bringing extra tubes, a pump or CO2 cartridges. Bikes will be inspected to ensure rider safety, but riders will be expected to provide their own replacement parts in the event of mechanical issues. Please ensure your bicycle is in good working order before arriving on campus. Riders will have access to our mechanic shop with a full complement of tools as well as bike washing station. Riders will be provided all nutritional needs during training including Skratch Labs hydration products along with solid foods such as fruit, snacks and bars. We will not provide gels. 

Assistant Coach PJ Noto and collegiate national champion Phil Kmetz will lead the camp. Noto and Kmetz have over 20 years of gravity racing experience combined, and have stood on the podium at countless regional, national, and international events. Each day will be split between presentations on topics related to training, goal setting, nutrition, race tactics, mental, teamwork and anti-doping in conjunction with training on the bike.
