2020 Stone Temple #3 Camp
(Dual Tracks – MTB Racing Or MTB Skills)

The Gowdy MTB Racing Camp has been renamed and redesigned for 2020.  There are now two tracks to this camp. Students can sign up for a skills focused track that is similar to the Stone Temple #2 Camp, or they can sign up for a race focused track.  For details on the skills focused track and camp director information, please reference the Stone Temple #2 Camp information on the website. The race focused track will emphasize taking your racing to the next level!  This will include the following:   

  • Develop fitness, racing skills, knowledge of your body and how to train it for success
  • Education on racing, training, recovery, and nutrition, including:
  1. Field testing to set Heart Rate Zones.
  2. How to train smart using HR training. 
  3. Pre-race planning, race strategies, and race review.
  4. Recovery and Nutrition, how to successfully prepare your body to race.
  5. The physiology of training zones and how to implement them in your own training.
  6. Mental preparation for competition.
  • Bike Kung Fu Skills: Gowdy is a great place to develop your skills and have fun!
  • Increase student’s self-confidence using the mountain bike as a tool for challenging fun self-discovery.

Students in both tracks will be attending education sessions on racing, training, recovery, nutrition, psychological preparation and how all these fit together for success.

Ride sessions will be on the IMBA Epic Trails at Curt Gowdy State Park, the surrounding roads, and Happy Jack.

COVID-19 Statement

As the COVID-19 (aka: the Coronavirus) grows as a public health concern, we will be doing our part to limiting the spread of the virus. Due to the ever changing conditions of public health concerns, we will be monitoring the situation over the next month and follow Wyoming and CDC guidelines.  Because our events are occurring far enough in the future that we are uncertain what June will bring, we will reach out early in May, if contingency plans are necessary. We appreciate your understanding and we are very hopeful that our June events will not be affected. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Since we still anticipate holding the camps, we are moving forward with registration.  Should we have to cancel the camps, we will provide you with a full refund.

Thanks in advance. Please let us know if you have questions.
