KTM Australia‰Ûªs Adventure Training Series Kicks Off In Style

Posted:


The first round of KTM Australia‰Ûªs Adventure Training Series concluded at the weekend with 55 orange adventurers having brushed up their skills and trail craft under the sage guidance of some of the biggest names in big bike riding and racing.

The series took place across three states, with weekends at Woodford (Qld), Bowral (NSW) and Dixons Creek (Vic) with a format jam-packed with adventure riding skills, navigation training and of course socialising with like-minded adventurers.

The sessions were open to all orange adventure riders with KTM Adventure / Super Adventure machines, or enduro models over 640cc.

Participants were treated to many spectacular examples of how unbelievably off-road capable KTM's Adventure bikes really are, in the hands of riders such as Kiwi hard-enduro ace Chris Birch - who had his KTM 1190 Adventure R eating out of his hand at every opportunity.

Also providing invaluable coaching, experienced adventure tour operator Nick Selleck provided a unique insight and wealth of helpful information on GPS navigation.
Multiple Aussie enduro and Finke champion and two-time Dakar entrant Ben Grabham put a KTM 1290 Super Adventure through its paces while helping out the group.

As approachable as he is fast, Grabbo was always happy to share his broad experience with riders interested in his many and varied career exploits.

‰ÛÏI really enjoyed being involved,‰Û

Series Coordinator Rosie Lalonde was extremely pleased with the success of the inaugural adventure training series.

‰ÛÏChris and Nick were incredibly knowledgeable and helpful with everyone. And it was great for riders to meet Ben and see him ride, plus on the Friday nights the riders could talk to him about his Dakar and other racing experiences, so it was really cool to have the guys hear direct from him.

‰ÛÏKTM‰Ûªs Orange Adventure events are ramping up, first with our Snowy Mountains Adventure Rally in March and then also with our next training course and two-day adventure ride which we will announce details of soon.‰Û
