Did you just get a new adventure or dual-sport bike, and can't wait to hit the TET, the ACT, or any other event or known track around your area?
The Express training is for you!
In our Express training, we managed to compress almost six days of training into two, so you can be ready to hit the trails faster.
Because it is fiscally impossible to teach 48 hours of techniques, tricks, and tips in 16, this training follows an exceptionally unique schedule.
We will go over the basics such as:
- Triangular position
- Emergency braking
While explaining to you:
- The safety envelope this training will give you
- Clear instructions as to what you can train on your own afterward to continue improving
- Basic principles of more advanced maneuvers so you are aware of what lies ahead
With a clear understanding of basic techniques as well as of will be needed to evolve, you are bound to understand precisely what you know and what you don't, giving you a big safety net to start your off-road adventures.
As we are compacting a considerable amount of information is only two days, this training is one of the most physically intense of our curriculum, with a class cadence much higher than we usually do.
You don't need to be super fit or an athlete to complete our Express training successfully, anyone can do it, but be prepared for two high-intensity days without many rests stops, and with a great deal of information being delivered.
To achieve our training goals, you will be allowed less time to practice per exercise, and activities like ergonomic adjustments will have to be skipped, even though they will be taught and spoken of.
If you are in a rush to start riding, and you don't want to lose one second of off-road fun, nor any part of the teaching that is going to get you to where you aim to get, then this training is all you have been searching for!
As far as tires are concerned, we strongly recommend a 50-50 tire, with no need for serious knobbies.
Our Express training values are for two full training days from 09:00 to 16:00 at our Enduro Camp facility in the Alentejo.
The value includes:
- Two lunches
- Water, and snacks during the class
- Experient and certified Enduro instructor
Our class does NOT include:
- Sleeping arrangements, although we can recommend a hotel we work with
- Dinner and breakfast, possible to have in the hotel as part of their service
- Bike rentals. We do not rent or arrange bikes for trainings at this point.
- Personal accident insurance for the training days
As with all our trainings, if you have any questions you would like to see answered before booking your training, send us an e-mail and we will be more than happy to help!
As long as the weather allows, we work all year round, and to make it easier, we have one scheduled group class per month.
It is also possible to open a new date on request. Dates on request open outside our regular calendar dates will always be subject to a higher value than regular schedled trainings, which does not constitute a guarantee or promise of a private class.
Group classes are usually of up to 6 riders. If you have your own group of more than 6, please get in touch.
Check our available dates, and if there are no available dates when you want/need them, get in touch with us.
There is nothing worst than having a class to learn something, just to realize you and your instructor cannot understand each other. We know, we have been there, both as instructors and students.
With this in mind, we decided to stick to what we know down to the core, so our classes are hosted in both Portuguese and/or English.
Everything has rules, and our trainings and tours are no different, so let's go over what you need to know to attend this training.
- At least a 50-50 tire, designated as is by its respective manufacturer (recommend)
- An integral helmet that is not modular
- Protection gloves
- A suit or assorted protections capable of protecting your back, upper and lower members
- A mid-calf or full-calf boot, preferentially, off-road biased
If you have any doubts about the gear or tires, let us know before you sign up for the class, as our instructors and guides have the right to refuse your participation in any of our activities, without reimbursement, if you do not present yourself with the minimum required safety gear.
As far as gas is concerned, it is important that you know that our Enduro Camp is 15 minutes away from the closest gas station and that we do not store extra gasoline on the camp.
This means that it is your responsibility to arrive with a full tank, or enough for at least 100kms or 60miles before the start of any activity.
The minimum quantity of fuel may vary depending on the activity, but it will always be disclosed to you beforehand.
Even though we are always flexible, due to the distance of the gas station, and out of respect for the instructors and the remaining participants, we generally cannot delay the start of any activity due to any participant's lack of fuel, the same way that there is no guarantee that any staff member will be available to escort you to the fuel station.
So get your bike fueled up, get your gear on, and come enjoy this incredible training!

BN reserves the right to cancel or stop any training if for any reason the safety or comfort of the participants is not guaranteed, including force majeure such as riots, floods, earthquakes, etc. In case of cancelation for safety or comfort issues, no refund will be available, but BN will propose one, and one alone alternative date to complete the remaining of the training. BN will not be liable for any hotels or any other kind of expenses a safety cancelation may force.
We recommend subscribing to travel insurance that covers the costs of a possible cancellation of any training/tour.
Depois de muitos anos longe das duas rodas, ao voltar quis ajuda profissional, e não podia estar mais contente com a escolha que fiz! Corrigi erros, aprendi muita coisa nova, e aprendi muito que não fazia sequer ideia que precisava saber, mas que agora, nunca mais quero esquecer. Excelente trabalho, muitos parabéns!
O Express training não é apenas um curso de conceitos e skills básicos de condução de mota. É uma experiência fantástica, adaptada aos conhecimentos e objetivos de cada participante, com um instrutor altamente qualificado e muito orientado para os seus clientes. Recomendo vivamente como curso inicial e também como reciclagem de conhecimentos pois há sempre espaço para aperfeiçoar e o Zé Duarte consegue transmitir de forma fácil e agradável esse conhecimento. Para o ano estamos lá outra vez
Com pouca informação de como deveria ser um curso de inicialização ao OffRoad, e apenas com algumas expectativas, decidir seguir viagem até à Barragem de Campilhas. Foi a melhor decisão que poderei ter tomado. Em 2 dias de treino é impressionante o que o formador consegue transmitir a nivel de conhecimento e o ponto de confiança que se consegue alcançar em cima da mota em terrenos de OffRoad. Foram transmitidos muitos conhecimentos teóricos sobre funcionamento da moto, acima de tudo sobre o bom posicionamento do corpo na mesma e como tudo isso tem influência na condução. Foram realizados bastantes exercícios desde os mais simples até alguns que começam a ter alguma complexidade ao início, que ao final do dia se tornam fáceis. Uma experiência que recomendo a qualquer um e fica para repetir para um nível seguinte de treino.
Um obrigado ao formador Zé Duarte!
O Treino foi-me oferecido, mas foi a melhor prenda que alguma vez podia ter recebido no que a motas diz respeito. O Zé consegue explicar as técnicas de forma super directa, simples e consegue desbloquear rapidamente todos e quaisquer bloqueios que tenhamos por forma a conseguirmos rapidamente ultrapassar os obstáculos, quer físicos quer mentais.
Sem dúvida uma experiência que recomendo para todos os que se querem aventurar fora de estrada pois desenvolve um nivel de conhecimento e confiança fora de série.
Próxima visita será para um treino mais avançado pois agora fiquei com vontade e conhecimento para me aventurar por esse mundo fora.
OBRIGADO Zé Duarte
Foi a melhor formação offroad que já realizei!!
Foi o melhor investimento em formação que já realizei!!
Após ter realizado este treino há mais de um mês, e de já ter efectuado alguns passeios de estrada, a diferença e confiança na condução é enorme.
Dois dias de formação onde aprendi a melhorar a relação mota/piloto de forma a se tornar uma só, essencial para o sucesso em offroad, bem como em estrada.
A paixão e a forma que o instructor Zé Duarte coloca durante todo o treino, é uma mais valia tremenda, pois transmite-nos uma confiança e conhecimentos impares.
Recomendo para quem quer desfrutar o meio offroad com mais confiança, e mais diversão, bem como para quem quer melhorar o seu desempenho em estrada.
Irei voltar para realizar novas formações mais avançadas.
Muito obrigado Zé Duarte.
