Course Level – from Safety to Master Skills

Why attend mountain bike courses at all?

Mountain bike courses, why actually? In the same way, one could also question a ski course. But biking can anyone, you learn in Tyrol but as a child, right? No, not at all. You learn to ride a bike in the city. Off-road, however, the world looks very different, there is gravel, roots, stones, steep climbs and descents, steps, narrow turns, etc.. And you definitely can’t do that just because you learned to ride a bike in your school days.

What is the advantage of a driving technique training? Here, one must distinguish between two aspects in particular. On the one hand, a solid basic technique offers a significant gain in safety, and on the other hand, a confident technique brings significantly more driving pleasure. Thus, so-called driving safety trainings are especially interesting for beginners, and re-beginners (e-bike). The course objective here is the safe mastery of gravel road descents at all gradients. The advanced courses, on the other hand, are clearly aimed at getting through even more challenging Tyrolean singletracks with more flow.

Our bike school in the Bikepark Innsbruck

Even before the Bikepark Innsbruck on the Mutterer Alm even existed, we offered courses in the area. At that time was the time of the Vertriders and the highly technical single trails such as the Nordkette Singletrail. It was a time when you had to teach yourself everything. Trial and error was the motto, and not infrequently we tried individual key points countless times until they worked. We had to learn the driving technique from scratch, and learning through pain was often the order of the day.

We want to spare you this and that’s why we started our courses and founded a bike school in 2017 under the name Flat Sucks. Through our many years of experience with customers and ourselves, we can now claim that we can teach the driving technique safely, confidently and with fun. You will make a decent progress on our camps and courses, and experience the bike park completely new. Depending on the course, we use different trainers. We have experienced children’s trainers and experts in the fat jumps. So there is something for every skill level.

Company events of our bike school in the Bikepark Innsbruck

Our bike school also offers an optimal base for your corporate event. Bike training increases the safety of your employees, motivates them to move more in nature and thereby also promotes health. The training area at the mountain station offers us an optimal opportunity for teambuilding exercises on the bike. The participants learn together, have to support each other and mock each other during heavier exercises (= catch each other in case of a fall). Subsequent joint descents with our coaches over the trails promote fun and team experience.

Lunch is served at the very cozy Mutterer Alm which invites you to relax. As a supporting program a round with the Mountaincarts is offered. All in the great outdoors in beautiful surroundings. So do not hesitate to send us an inquiry to receive a non-binding offer.

Bike school trainer

Lena Koller is an all-rounder, always motivated and with high goals. There is hardly a mountain sport discipline in which she is not constantly pushing her limits. From the chick in a Tyrolean ski racing family, her career first developed in the direction of mountain biking and then later on to ambitious alpine projects. You rarely see them on the ski slopes these days, but you do see them again and again on the podium at MTB marathons or on various sports advertising images. In between, Lena works as an extremely motivated and experienced riding technique trainer and bike guide.

Jonas Bayer – Biking as well as skiing have totally fascinated him. That’s why he has been a mountain bike guide since 2016 and in 2019 he completed the training to become a mountain bike instructor. He is looking forward to a fun and eventful as well as educational time on the bike with you! As a very good riding technician in theory and practice, he will take you to the next level at the Technique Tuesday.

Markus Emprechtinger: Born in the hilly Innviertel region, it was clear at the latest when he moved to Innsbruck to study that a life without mountains would no longer be viable. He studied meteorology so he wouldn’t get caught in the rain on the road, but most of the time he’s outdoors anyway and takes the weather as it comes. After many years of bike guiding experience (over 50 Transalps) now fully in the mountain guide business. Markus is an all-rounder, whether with bike, ice tools, climbing pads or skis, he has fun everywhere. That’s why flatsucks, as long as the terrain isn’t flat, nothing stands in the way of a good day. Besides mountain sports, there is also photography.

Sabine Schipflinger – Grown up in Viehhofen, a small village in front of Saalbach Hinterglemm, she moved to Innsbruck to study sports science. When she’s not in college, she loves to spend her time on the snow or on the trails. Through her work as an instructor in the ski instructors association, ski guide and mountain bike guide, she likes to pass on her knowledge to like-minded people or those who want to become one.

Philipp Moll – Since 2010, the Wahlinnsbrucker has been an integral part of the local mountain world, whether on two wheels, legs or boards. This is how the full-time pedagogue stayed after his studies in Innsbruck. Here he has turned his passion into a second profession and now regularly gives MTB riding technique courses and MTB kids training. In doing so, it is important to him to combine the two disciplines of his professional activities and to create a learning environment that is always pleasant and progressive.

Julia Granbichler – Growing up on the Mieminger Plateau, biking has always been a big thing for Julia. At the latest after graduating and returning from Vienna, she completely fell in love with the bike. For 6 years now, bikes have been an integral part of her life. Then 2 years ago she also began to share her passion with others and now supports us with courses.
