Sand Weekend and Dirtbike Fundamentals
The start of winter is an excellent time to improve your riding skills and have some serious fun on your bike.
The next two Country Trax Western Cape courses coming up in May are the Dirt Bike Fundamentals Course at Eselfontein near Ceres (11-13 May 2012) and the Sand Riding Course at Klipbokkop (18-20 May 2012) just outside Worcester.
Both of these courses are only presented once a year in the Western Cape. Do not miss out on this opportunity. If you have done the Intermediate Weekend course, then the Sand Course will take your riding to the next level and slay the 'Sand Monster' for good.
If you have just gotten yourself a little dirt bike to play on (that includes the ladies on their 230Fs), then the dirtbike fundamentals course is brilliant. You will learn to master your bike in a safe, responsible environment, and have a lot of fun. I did this course sommer twice because it is so good and such fun. A bit more information on what you can expect:

Master a new set of skills, build confidence and be comfortable on your dirt bike. This training is suitable for Enduro/Dirt Bike riders riding bikes of typically 125 – 550 cc engine capacity.
Your skills and confidence to ride an adventure bike is greatly enhanced when you learn to handle an Enduro/Dirt bike correctly. It is GREAT fun and you can practice many techniques and tricks on the smaller and lighter bike which you can apply with good results on your big adventure bike. This course is also ideal for self taught Dirt and Enduro bike riders who want to get rid of bad habits and who, by applying correct techniques, will get much more enjoyment from their bikes.
Some key elements covered in the course: The underlying philosophy of the course is that only if your basic skills are firmly entrenched, can you advance to becoming a good dirt bike rider. Topics covered during this course therefore include basic riding positions and riding style; balancing; cornering on flat ground and in ruts; jumping over rough terrain, logs and holes; river crossings; emergency stops; wheelies and ‘stoppies’; as well as practical and technical riding over a wide variety of terrain.
