LEVEL 1: BASICS SKILLS TO AVOID CRASHES

  • Proper use of body control, bike controls to do very slow evolutions
  • Techniques of U-Turns, including U-Turn in a climb
  • Proper technique to pick-up the bike from the ground
  • Standing up at higher speed on dirt

In this second part of the day, we move to a different area to ride single tracks. You will use what you’ve learned in the morning and discover some more advanced techniques:

  • Riding position in whoops
  • Steep climbs and descents
  • Riding in ruts
  • Small jumps
  • Recover from a stall in climb

LEVEL 3: SAND RIDING

We will meet in a OHV area with big dunes and will learn how to ride confidently and safely in the sand. Then we’ll take the bikes on a small one hour ride to see how good we became at riding sandy sections in real trails. This class is not overly difficult but will nontheless require a good physical condition and moderate off-road skills.

Frequently Asked Questions

What motorcycle do I need?

You can come with your own bike, whatever model it is. You can also rent a Tenere 700 for the duration of the class.

 

Do I need to take all the classes?

You only need to take the class Level you think you need or you’re interested in. We’ll review your skills on the spot but chances are that you know already what you want or need to work on. We can also develop a special lesson for you if you want us to go deeper in some specific area.

Age and driver licence

There’s no minimum or maximum age if you come with your own bike. If you want to use our combo TENERE700, the minimum age is 25 years old, a requirement in our insurance policy. A motorcycle endorsement on your valid drivers licence is also mandatory. European riders need to present a driver licence with an “A” (unrestricted) category, even if we will be riding in OHV areas and never be on any public road during the training.

Insurance

If you don’t already have a motorcycle insurance or don’t want to use yours, you can subscribe to a daily coverage through our provider, starting from $15/day.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellation policy is different for training than for tours. It goes like this:

• No cancellation fee if you cancel at least 15 days before the day of your class.

• If the cancellation is between:

  • 14 – 8 days before the class, you will pay 20% of the total price
  • 7 days to 3 day before the class, you will pay 50% of the total price

• If you cancel within two days of the class or you’re not coming for any reason, you won’t get any refund.
