Leigh will take riders through a variety of skills training including:

A little bit about Leigh Donovan
In 1995, Leigh became the World Downhill Champion and winner of both the dual slalom and downhill US National titles that same year. Leigh believes much of that success and confidence on the bike came from what she learned off the bike. Leigh knows that one never stops being a student, and that even the best can always learn something new. Today Leigh brings with her 30 years of competitive cycling, a resume that no other skills coach can match, and knowledge and experience that she shares with others, helping riders find that same joy and confidence that she has found both on and off the bike.
