The DP2 course is designed around Adventure Bikes. Yes, you can ride gravel roads but now you want to go off the beaten track, you want to explore all those new places that no one has ever seen or maybe you just want to be more comfortable riding at higher speeds on gravel roads. Or maybe you just want to let your mates taste your dust… This course is designed around the principles of mastering various terrain forms.
We focus on riding single track, tacking high speed corners, sliding of your rear wheel to set yourself up for corners and much more… This is a well sought after course focusing on intermediate and advanced riding techniques, entrenched through guided and assisted practical application in varied riding terrain. Please note you have to have attended our DP1 course or similar to DP1courses at other training schools.
