Event Details

Atlantis Sand Training Day Saturday 4th September 2021

You are hereby invited to join the BMWMCC Training team on an Atlantis Sand Training Day.  The main focus would be to expose you to different levels of sand, and train some muscle memory, to conquer some of the “Sand-monsters” that we do experience so unexpectedly on outings.

The terrain offers a variety of different sand conditions, ranging from messed up sand track “spaghetti” to clean untouched (virgin) sand for you to practice on.  Unfortunately, you have to conquer the spaghetti first to get to the untouched sand!

A variety of different sand riding techniques will be discussed at a short briefing session, as well as the more important sand recovery techniques, which you will have ample opportunity to put into practice throughout the day. We will set up a base-camp in the dunes, which will serve as a rest-stop, where everyone can take a breather after excursions.

IMPORTANT NOTE: this day is NOT for people who have not ridden on sand before and are at least familiar with the basics of sand riding.  The entry into the dunes requires commitment and experience.  We highly recommend riders who completed at least Level 2 of the BMWMCC training courses, or CountryTrax intermediate, or similar.  Upon booking, we will ask for proof of training, before accepting, due to group safety. This is a chance to improve your confidence on sand, and slowly slay the monster of sand!
