What’s a an adventure rally without training? For 2017, Touratech-USA has teamed up with world-class experts for skill-building opportunities.
Three enduro/off-road training programs will be available during 2017 Touratech Rally West: Jimmy Lewis Off-Road Riding School, Dirt-First Off-Road Training, and PSSOR ADV Training.
Jimmy Lewis needs no introduction; the Baja 1000 Champion and Dakar podium finisher will offer his school’s intense “Series 1” class. This class was designed to improve off-road riding skill–especially on large-displacement enduro machines, though Lewis recommends using a smaller bike for classes.
For the third-straight Touratech Rally West, the locals from Dirt-First Off-Road Training will be on site, offering a ladies-only class and various other clinics for all riders.
PSSOR ADV Training will also be present. This group has been with Touratech at nearly every Rally, and provides all-around ADV training for a range of skill levels.
Space for all three training programs is limited; reserve your spot ASAP.
Besides the training schools, Touratech Rally West will also feature speakers, including Jimmy Lewis and Helge Pedersen, the first modern ADV rider who penned “10 Years on 2 Wheels” from his travels aboard a BMW R 80 G/S in the early 1980s when traveling by two across countries was much more challenging–and dangerous–than nowadays.
