Caveman MTB Skill clinics – Pretoria

Conrad Stoltz Caveman Skill Clinics

Caveman hits Pretoria on June 20 & 21.


No matter how fast (or slow) you are, I teach basic MTB skills. (I still practice them myself) The more you practice these skills, the sooner you will: Ride faster, ride safer, ride hairier trails, have more fun!

What to expect: This is about learning, not about “jaag-ing” till everyone is dropped and/or bleeding. We cultivate a low pressure, low key, relaxed atmosphere where you can best learn the basic skills in a safe environment. We spend most of our time on a smooth, flat surface. (ok, I may place soft obstacles in your way) Once you have a good handle on the skills, we break for drinks & snacks before we hit the trails & apply what we learned. We start with easy trails, we ride stop & go, so I can demonstrate and watch you convert “parking lot skills” to the trail. (For the Karate Kid fans, think: “Wax on, wax off, paint the fence etc” before you can kick ass)

You dont need to be super fit or tapered and carbo loaded. That said, I cater to the needs of the group, which is why its even better if we can fill the class with your riding friends. (Once or twice the ride has spiraled into a bit of a overtime smash-fest with silly grins at the end…)

You dont need to be in much of a shape to learn, BUT your bike needs to be in perfect working condition!

If you have knee pads, bring them. This is not a crash-fest, but somehow we just ride better with them on.


Saturday June 20:

Where: Buffelsdrift MTB Park. Why not race DualX off road duathlon with me in the morning, and learn skills on the new Buffelsdrift trails after lunch?

When: “After lunch” 2 – 5pm.

Depending on the needs of the group, we can include some duathlon skills and tips- fast transitions, nutrition, pacing & strategy, equipment, etc.  Please indicate if you (or your kids) do duathlon.

Caveman interview with TRS Radio

Caveman talks hunting & gathering on TRS radio.

When this was recorded,  IM Kona, Oct  2014, @TheRealStarky was a only parody twitter account, and “The Real Starky” was still under cover. Being quite controversial and loose mouthed on twitter, it was intimidating sitting down for a podcast with TRS.  However, once we met over beers,  “Ben” turned out to be a baby faced nice guy, but also seriously sharp and curious.  a “Sheep in wolves clothes” I called him. Dark Mark was a little shy, but I think we both had a bit of a man crush on each other. See, the humorous @_Dark_Mark twitter feed is my favourite toilet reading material.

Without further ado, here’s the interview:

“A long talk with a legend. Conrad sat down with us at the Huub house  in Kona and talked to about his career, killing a baboon with his bare hands and eating road kill. Listen in on as Dark Mark and The Real Starky get to know this triathlon legend while consuming about a dozen beers. Conrad might be the most interesting man in the sport. Enjoy!”


Other TRS interviews I enjoyed are Macca and Jan Frodeno.
