    Do any of you know of where I could take a dirt riding class somewhat near Colorado Springs?

    I have plenty of experience on the road, but want to be comfortable on rugged terrain.

    Contact Ian Blythe. If you have facebook search for him there. If not, send me a PM and I can get you in touch. Ian has raced on the Factory Honda Team for the World Enduro Championship. He is also headed to Italy for the ISDE at the end of this month.

    I have spent several different days training with him. Ian is an awesome guy.

    So I found Ian on Facebook, but did message him yet. Thanks for passing on the name. Who should I tell him sent me? Does he offer classes? Does he regularly train novices?

    I know a couple of guys who race. But I'd rather get instruction from a class or a professional instructor.

    It's like this. I'm very good at skiing and don't mind teaching people. But honestly people would learn more in ski school because ski instructors are trained to teach.

    Anyway thanks again and I may hit him up.
