      About this trip

      Looking to learn in a more challenging environment?  This is your event! Designed for returning students and riders looking for a more challenging learning environment. The same low energy, technique-over-brawn concepts that are taught in the ADV Camp are taught during the Challenge Camp, however they are all learned in more challenging environments. 

      Due to the nature of this training camp unexpected learning opportunities will occur, ensuring the lesson plan will be fluid, creating a unique class you will never forget! 

      Make sure you watch this video before signing up.

      Riding Conditions

      This training primarily takes place on Class 3 and Class 4 or unintentionally Class 5 terrain. You are not expected to be able to ride your adventure bike through this type of terrain when you arrive, but you are expected to have the physical conditioning and mental drive needed to methodically work through challenging terrain.

      This is not a class to show how much you already know or to pound your chest and “just send it”. This is a place to learn strategy and skills for overcoming difficult terrain on big bikes in a controlled manner. 

      Additional Requirements

      1.  Boots. Due to the high risk locations in this training environment, you will not be allowed to participate wearing Forma Adventures, work, street, or hiking boots.

      2.  Tires. It is highly recommended you show up with 50/50 tires or better. Each lesson is taught in a different area and your bike needs to be able to make it to the next location.

      3.  Mental Stamina. You need to show up with the mental ability to override your fears.

      4.  Physical Condition. Due to the mobility of this course, if you become physically exhausted, you may not be able to attend all lessons.
