OFFROAD BASIC

2 days rider training

This is our two day basic training. We start from scratch with throttle/clutch control, balance exercises, lifting techniques, braking exercises, cornering and riding up- and down-hills. After that we continue to more advanced exercises, but always at a comfortable level for you.

We adapt the exercises individually, so that you can grow at your own pace and still feel challenged. We stay mainly in our training area, but a few short trips to apply what we have learned, are also included.
