Intro to Intermediat
What's the Difference

If you don't think you'll get anything from our of-road training expeditions, think again!

We've trained worldwide moto travelers with very basic off-road skills. We've also trained beginner ADV riders who were already highly skilled. Each type has something to gain.

So are you a beginner or advanced rider? Do the self assessment below.

Intro ADV

The "Intro to ADV" training is for riders that have never been off-road or have several years of off-road experience but lacking basic fundemental technique and good habits.

You will learn the basic fundementals and proper technique to build your confidence and elevate your riding to the next level. Fast track years of progression in just one weekend!

Intermediate to Advanced ADV

The "Intermediate to Advanced" training is for riders that feel they already have a solid fundemental foundation and confidence off-road but have hit a plateau in their progression or just want to fast track their progression to the next level.

In this training we will review the same fundamentals as the "Intro to ADV" course, adding in some advanced techniques, while practicing on more challenging technical terrain at a faster pace.

Intro Self Assessment

You might be an INTRO off-road ADV rider if when riding off-road:

🏍 You find it hard to multi-task (talk through your mic and drive) at the same time.

🏍 You have several crashes or near crashes or drop your bike frequently

🏍 You get exhausted riding off-road and need to take frequent breaks.

Intermediate+ Self Assessment

You might be an intermediat+ off-road ADV rider if when riding off-road:

🏍 You don't have a problem multi-tasking, you can chat and ride easily most of the time.

🏍 Crashes or drops don't happen often. You might have a few near misses.

🏍 Riding off-road doesn't tire you out and you can travel somewhat long distances off-road.

"The training and instruction yesterday was phenomenal. Each of your team’s direction and insights at the group and individual level was incredibly helpful, I walked away with a lot more confidence than I arrived with. Expect to hear from me in the future for some of your guided trips."

So what kind of stuff will I learn?

 First we're going to jump into the foundations like what gear you need, getting familiar with the bike, clutch and throttle control, body postion.

Then we're going to build on that foundation and tranfer what we know into usable skills. Such as slipping the clutch, using your feet to steer, balancing the bike, throttle and clutch together.
