Frequently Asked Master Class Questions

How do I get feedback about my progress?

We're ready to answer your questions and critique your practice videos! Below every lesson is a comment area – leave your questions or video link and our coach team will respond.

How is the course delivered?

Upon purchase you’ll get immediate access to the entire video based course. You can stream the lessons from any device. When you finish a lesson can mark it as complete to keep track of your progress.

How long do I have access to the program upon purchase?

You can purchase any of our courses separately which gives you access forever. Or you can get a monthly membership which gives you access to all my courses while you’re a member.

How hard or demanding is this program going to be?

Manuals and especially Bunny hops require strength, and just like any training program it takes time to develop. I have designed the course taking that into account with graduation goals for each lesson. Physically you may experience sore muscles and joints that need to be honoured with rest – my physical therapist has written a post inside the course that helps you monitor this. There is also physical risk as further explained in the terms and conditions. Mentally, you may face frustration which is why I address your mental fitness skills throughout the program.

What’s the difference between a wheelie and a manual?

Wheelies are performed seated while pedalling. Manuals are performed standing with no pedalling.
