200 female riders in the 5th Red Bull Foxhunt Equals 100% Stoke! Rachel welcomed 200 female mountain-bikers to her hometown for the 5th Red Bull Foxhunt – an “upside down” mass start race where six times World Champion Rachel “ The fox” chases down the “hunters “ in two days of awesome riding on the hills of Machynlleth.
All mountain bike rookies have their idols. They look up to the greats such as Greg Minnaar, Aaron Gwin, Rachel Atherton or Myriam Nicole. However, in order to improve, reach personal goals and inch closer to the riding level of their idols, having fun plays a vital role in the developmental process. Training off the bike and learning other techniques is a key part to becoming successful, and it’s an integral part of the game.
This is the foundation of the annual “Rookie Camp”, in which the participating kids are prepared to drop into the Downhill track during the „iXS International Rookies Championships“ – the unofficial youth World Championships. “Encouraging and supporting the young riders is extremely important to us. They are the future of our sport. We want to help them improve on the bike, but more importantly have fun mountain biking. Therefore we work as a team of experienced coaches and MTB pros, such as Matt Walker, who was with us this year,” explains Bikepark Manager Christian Zangerl.
The MTB-Festival Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis puts the kids in the spotlight every year. The preparation during the “Rookie Camp” is tailored specifically to their needs, so that they are well prepared for the weekend of racing. Additionally, they have the chance to gain insight into the life of a pro and to learn and acquire a whole range of skills that are beneficial to becoming a better rider. “It’s really good to pass on knowledge that I have learned over the last few years, instead of them having to learn the hard way themselves. Having the whole week with them really lets us dig deep and go in- depth when learning about each aspect of riding. So it’s not just a quick brush over the skills,” says New Zealand’s World Cup Pro Matt Walker.
Apart from training on the bike, riding the trails and track walks, all aspects of being a good rider, both physically and mentally, are emphasized. “The level of concentration tends to decrease if you are constantly riding. It’s important to learn to take a break to be able to get back on the bike fully focused. This is why the schedule consists of other activities as well,” Zangerl stresses.
A yoga seminar highlights the benefits of flexibility, agility and breathing techniques when it comes to preventing injury. The effects mindset has on the body, and therefore also on riding, are explained, and simple exercises are taught so that the young rookies can pick up techniques and work on finding the perfect balance they need to send the run they are looking for. Mental coaching sharpens the senses for the race environment; visualization and mental strength are key components for successful track walks, race run preparation and also processing and dealing with negative results or experiences.
“It’s great to see how the kids take the information on board. Suddenly you see kids actually starting to use visualization and concentration techniques before and while they head up to the start gate. A day earlier some of them would just go up the mountain and send it down the track without a second thought or preparation,” Christian Zangerl recognizes as he already looks forward to the next “Rookie Camp” that will take place from July 29 to August 4, 2019. “It’s super exciting to see how the rookies develop over the course of a year. Me and my team are looking forward to doing our part again next year; helping the kids to grow their passion for the sport and take the next step in their development.”
