BMW Off road course in Wales

Hi All

Just come back from Wales and completed the BMW level 1 off road course in preparation for RTW next year.

It was fantastic and my confidence has increased greatly on and off road. Si Pavey and Matt are fantastic as are the other trainers and although exhausting, it was a real thrill. It's somewhat on the pricey side but I reckon its worth it and I would love to do the next course.

Does anyone know of any training around the UAE in the near future? I know that KTM run some training days in October but does anyone know of any off road training?

Cheers
Biker Chick!

Ady Smith runs some off road KTM enduro days in Wales, near to Oswestry. I went on one as a first time off roader (though with a fair amount of proper mountain biking experience), and it was superb. Their bikes, (choice of sizes and powers), their kit, breakfast and lunch in the landowners farmhouse, real top day out, and I learnt a lot.

He'll put together days to suit, from beginner to pro enduro riders.

He's a top bloke, give him a call. Even if you're on your own, you may be able to tag onto another beginners group.
