Days of riding through the desert dunes, wakes of sand thrashed back by the churning tires. The merciless sun beating down as the riders race to the end… perhaps not to win, but just to finish. Most of us will never race the Dakar, but this February 24-26
, you will have the opportunity to join a limited number of adventure riders to meet, train and ride with one of only two Americans to ever finish on the podium of the Dakar: Jimmy Lewis.

We’ll be planning epic routes through desert rock, and will have professional photographers there to capture images and video of the weekend. Delicious and hearty southwestern food will be catered for the event, and at night we’ll enjoy cold beverages around a campfire before turning in to our tents. We will be camping outside Death Valley
and will be near truly great riding of all types.
Come in Friday to meet with everyone and enjoy a meal and beverages around the campfire. Bright and early Saturday morning, we’ll have a brief training session with Jimmy Lewis before heading out on a route specially mapped for our group. We’ll break for lunch in Pahrump at Jimmy’s training facility, before continuing on for the afternoon. The day will end with us back at the campgrounds, where riders are welcome to relax in the nearby natural hot springs and hot tubs before a delicious dinner. The next day we’ll enjoy breakfast together before packing up and heading out on routes for individual rides.
This special weekend ride is a great training opportunity for both beginners and the more experienced. Jimmy Lewis has been training off road riders for years, and can offer great insight for everyone. This will be a weekend full of entertainment, great food, and epic riding.
