    Hi all,


    Im organising a dirt riding course, following are a few details of the
    course Im in the process of organising, a date is yet to be picked. The
    course would be over a weekend at a property at Batemans Bay, 300km south of Sydney and specifically aimed at the big bikes and run through Lyndon Heffernan an ex Aussie MX champ and regular rider trainer who works with Stephen Galls school of Off road riding

    . Cost of the course is $200 per rider includes camping, completion
    certificate, Academy Cap and course manual.
    We would cover braking, steering, flat turns, ruts, berms, jumps, (erosion
    control barriers) logs, creeks, up hills and downhills and including
    lectures on bike set-up, hydration, nutrition.

    When I have a date I'll let you know

    Heffo's courses are well regarded, I just wish I was closer...

    If he does one closer to Brisbane, I would be there, only 1500km to get there then :D

    sigh...

    Anything to learn how to throw me tiger round the bush would be great. I'd give it a go. Any idea when you'd be running it at this stage?

    The course is filling up fast, 20 so far have booked in and only a few places left so book ASAP or you'll miss out.

    G'Day Greg,

    Any chance they will run another one (hopefully north of Sydney) if the response is good enough? I would really like to do the course but Bateman's Bay is a bit too far from home.
