What is the Jura Sports Academy?

Our Bike Academy’s mission is to develop young riders in the Terre Sainte area by learning essential mountain bike and cycling skills in a fun and secure environment. Head coach Thierry is a UCI certified coach and passionate about riding his bike and transmitting his passion to young riders.

How long and when ?

Sessions are between 60 and 90 minutes long depending on the weather and the age group. Half of the session is dedicated to cycling skills and exercises and the other half riding the bikes on trails, putting in practice what we learn. We meet on Wednesdays and Saturdays at the Founex Sports Centre, between August and October, and between April and July
