This option is for riders that are looking for an advanced group of peers and coaches to train and compete with. We will spend our training days mastering the fundamentals for riding fast, as well as more advanced techniques to take your riding to any level you want.

 

Our mission is to create the first ever developmental program to take junior athletes to the pros and continue to provide support at the elite level through coaching, logistics, sponsorships, and financial support. 

 

We will focus on developing all-around riding skills so our athletes could compete in a Crankworx slope event, or UCI DH event and do very well. We will also provide opportunities for professional edits and trips to ride for fun and gain more skills, experience, and knowledge. 

 

The Tribe will have many opportunities to compete in Downhill, Dual Slalom, and Slopestyle across the continent and world to represent Outlaw and build their experience and résumé. Traveling with the team lowers costs and builds team unity and support. Riding ability increases exponentially at these events and builds confidence. We also have a lot of fun, all the time. Like, it's non-stop fun. We've built some pretty amazing memories and it's only going to get better.

2022 Tribe Registration

No Problem! The Tribe is open to any athlete that earns a spot based on merit, completing the requirements, future goals, and past accomplishments. 

The Outlaw Tribe is a country wide opportunity for junior riders to experience the many benefits of being part of a team with professional coaching and representation. 

 

We connect junior shredders from all over the country to build life-long friendships, develop connections, and empower athletes to learn and progress at an exponential rate. 

 

How:

The Outlaw Bike Team is built on developing what we call Higher Level Humans. This is our way of saying that athletes need to be much more than just good bike riders; they need to have grit, courage, positivity and indomitable character all while treating everyone with respect and an open mind to learning from every failure and opportunity. 

 

Not only is this a great way to live life and keep things FUN, it also gets you noticed as a person who cares about your craft and having a professional representation of who you are to everyone. 

 

Why?

We believe that DH racing is fun! And it should always be fun no matter what. Technically, anyone can get a bike and race at these races, however, for juniors to remain interested and motivated to continue in this very difficult sport, they need to see success and safety from their first experience. 

 

And just as important, parents need support to wade through it all and help make it somewhat less expensive. By leveraging more athletes, we can make most races less expensive by sharing lodging, travel, and food expenses. Coach Tyson has been organizing trips for ski teams and Outlaw Bike Team for 8 years and has it all down to a science.

 

We want to provide the foundations for this success by keeping these kids riding another day and learning life-long skills and building life-long friendships. 

 

What we do

 

  • Coaching at Pro GRT, Nationals, Crankworx Whistler, and other large events. This includes, but is not limited to team warmups, conditioning, track walk, line choice, video review for both technical and tactical instruction.

  • Athlete management prior to and at named events i.e. event registration, schedules, future planning based on goals

  • Athlete representation as needed i.e. race meetings, disqualifications, petitions for larger races etc.

  • 3-4 Training Camps per year

  • All-inclusive or a la carte packages that fit each family’s needs. Options include arrangement for travel, lodging, meal plans, and access to the team mechanic.
