Who can come?

The Road Camp is for ages 12-23, preferably with some racing experience, as this camp is about Road Racing. Experienced racers who are racing at Junior Nationals in Bend are especially encouraged to attend. You will learn in a relaxed team environment from eager teachers, which will help you progress to a category 1 rider faster!

The Freeride Camp is for those who just aren’t content with their wheels on the ground. Ages 12-23, some experience and willingness to progress is desired. This is not an intimidating jump-jam contest, this is a place to learn from the pros, your peers and show the world that Bend has some of the best freeriders in the world.
