How much are the clinics usually? How useful are they?
Personal opinion...

The jump class was great. But is like learning a language, if you dont practice it everyday, its something you will forget. Still glad I took the class though, because talking to a pro rider is very helpful.

I have not tried the riding class, but somehow, gut feeling tells me that there will be some learning, but not as much as the jump class (which is almost a 100% brand new thing to me at that time). Perhaps the riding class is more fine tuning and getting the techniques down?

i could so use that jump class...ever since falling alot without being clipped in and the pedals mashing my legs jump after jump, the confidence was just lost. :(

Now I'm clipped in and can usually jump puddles or small berms on flat lands, but if they're on a downhill portion I tend to slow way down instead of just going for it. This happened today actually!

link to more info on the jump class?

check bikeskills.com???

The guy that I took it from, Chris Duncan, is no longer there. He started something call Lesson One. Do a search.

But I am very sure that Joe Lawill are excellent teacher for dirt jumping too.
