offroad course
« Gepost op: 20-06-2011, 10:01 »
Hello there,

I would like to go on enduro/offroad/motocross course to improve my technique and riding skills. As for now, I'm mainly practicing on a cross tracks but I have no-one who actually can tell me, you do this wrong, this is ok, try to do it this way. So, I want to avoid learning bad habits and speed up learning process by going to some course.

Can you suggest me or recommend some nice course? I know there is one from KNMV but for coming months it's booked out.

You could also try to join a rideout, they are usually posted under: All/Off-road ritten en evenementen or you can search via the kalender for organised rideouts.
If you see something that seems ineteresting, just ask and someone will translate for you.
There are usually some people that enjoy taking newbies along and give plenty of tips and pointers during the day.

@Roos, I monitor that section quite regularly. I try to participate as much as possible ;)

@Noppy, thanks for the link. It is definitely worth checking. Why do you think it's much better to start with trial course? They offer 4hours trial course for beginner. Do you thing it's enough?

Balance and body position are key for good riding. Cornering speeds and such come later. It may be easier to learn new things than to 'de-learn' bad habits ;)

I don't know of any other off-road training then those of the KNMV. These trainings are organised by former MX'er and enduro rider Henk Seppenwoolde.

I would opt for the Offroad-2 training; the Offroad-1 is veeeeeeeeeeeery basic. http://www.knmv.nl/rijopleidingen/cursusaanbod/offroad-2

On the subject of language: I use translate.google.nl to translate any webpage. Just copy paste the link above in the textbox and it will present the page to you in some sort of English.

so, after noppy's suggestion, i enrolled for a trial course this Saturday. We'll see ;)

I planned to take part in some races later this year but I doubt if I will be skilled enough to do that. What is the level on those races?

Perhaps this is a good one for you: http://www.berrt.nl/training-specs.php?soort_training=2
Never done it myself but heard good stories about it, because the training takes place in a large sandpit, there is something for everybody on each level.
Don't subscribe to any beginners level though, because that's mainly big bikes and with your smaller 450 you will learn much faster.
