BMX pro Larry Edgar flows through the indoor bowls at Woodward Copper during a visit last year. Edgar returns to Woodward this summer as a guest pro coach from June 18-24.

BMXers: This is your summer to rip it up with the pros.

Early this month, Woodward Copper announced that Larry Edgar, pro BMX rider, is joining the list of pro coaches scheduled to hang and ride with campers at Woodward's 2017 BMX camps. Camps begin June 4 and run through Aug. 5, with each session lasting six days from Sunday to Saturday. Price is $999 per attendee for the BMX camps, including meals, housing, instruction and more during the stay.

Edgar teams up with Adam Baker and other expert BMX coaches for Week 3 (June 18-24). These guest coaches help campers sharpen their riding skills and tricks in an array of bike courses, including the Woodward Copper Barn, indoor bowl, mini ramp and street course, according to a release from Woodward.

Edgar is a pro rider for Vans, Fly Bikes, Stay Strong BMX and Ride 100% and recently won Simple Session 2017. He also secured third in the 2017 Vans BMX Pro Cup. His creative and free-flowing riding style has inspired fellow pros and, even more importantly, the latest generation of riders, the release continued.

A typical day during Woodward Copper's summer BMX camp will be spent riding with Edgar and other BMX experts, while navigating Woodward's growing campus from the base of Copper Mountain. To help dial in tricks, campers can take their skills to the trampolines in the Barn, where they learn air awareness, before hitting the indoor Skatelite ramps and courses on their bikes. After training during the day, campers get to hang out in the Barn, or test their ninja skills on Woodward's new WreckTangle "Ninja Warrior"-style obstacle course.
