For Immediate Release

BetterRide with Gene Hamilton ups the ante again by joining forces with Marla Streb to put on the best mountain bike skills coaching in the US.

Baltimore, MD: The BetterRide Mountain Bike Camp will take place on June 2-4, 2007. This camp is limited to ensure the optimal athlete coach ratio of 7 to 1. This is an amazing opportunity to learn from the most experienced mtb skills coach in the US and one of the most talented racers in the sport.


Marla has recently started joining Gene as a guest coach in his BetterRide camps. Their first camp together sold out and was a big hit with the riders.

“My first run down the mountain was on a trail that I had ridden many times before. Gene was following me half way down (to see if I was really paying attention) and it was my best run ever!!! That one run alone was worth the fee for the clinic, I was so impressed with what I had learned so far! And talking about someone that knows, the highlight of the clinic (how about my life) for me was getting several chances to ride behind Marla. She is so fast and makes it look so easy it’s almost like watching a ballerina on a bike it was amazing and very helpful for me.” -Chris Shelley


Designed for recreational riders and racers, this is a fun and informative mountain bike skills camp. Improve your skills, gain confidence and enjoy your riding and/or racing! Start beating your friends and/or drop 2-6 minutes an hour off your race times.
