We’ve had a few calls about the competition we are running in schools to find new MTB stars of the future. We’re scouring the UK for ‘Britains Got MTB Talent’ in schools. The winners stand to win a trip to Wales at a special Calypso MTB Academy – here they’ll get coaching from our friends at OnePlanet Adventure, Llandegla to learn all the tricks and skills of mountain biking. It will be completely free to those invited (yes honestly, everything will paid for by those nice people at Calypso!).
So here’s how it works – our coaching team are spotting top talent as they travel around the UK with the Calypso Sports Anywhere MTB campaign, coaching kids in schools on the basics of mountain biking. When they see young people who show real potential, these names are going onto a special list. At the end of the year (after we’ve been to loads of schools) the coaches will pick ten of you and then we’ll get in touch with your schools and parents to see if you can come for a trip of a lifetime.
We did the same for surfing and took 10 winners to a Calypso Surf Academy down in Cornwall and it was the best week ever for some kids – many of whom had never even been to a British beach before.
