Bagnoli Bike organised the weekend of the 9th and 10th of february 2013 in the beautiful Bandite trail area near Punta Ala, a professional training course with pro athlete and successful Enduro racer Andrea Bruno.
The methods and techniques were taught with Andrea Bruno giving detailed rider training on how to ride Enduro at the top level and teach riders from all levels how to improve their bike handling skills.
Davide and Alessandro Bagnoli organised with Poggiodiavolino an excellent course and program for training. I-mtb’s Alex Boyce was there to shoot the riders and show what happens on a weekend like this.
Beautiful Sunshine and dry condtions.
Two groups of 11 riders took part in the course, with every point that could be covered in a short time on basic bike setup and handling covered.
At first site cornering around olive crates seemed unusual, however it wsa a perfect situation where Andrea explained precise technique for cornering at speed on the trail, coaching each rider on how to do it perfectly.
Encouragement from Andrea resulted in all the riders improving their technical riding skills.
Riders had the opportunity to ask questions and advice from Andrea about perfect bike setup.
Andrea’s race tuned aluminium covert 26″.
There were bikes everywhere.
The full range of Transition bikes was available for testing.
Davide Bagnoli was present to make sure all the bikes were in perfect adjustment.
The training involved first theory teaching and technique study, followed by practice on the Enduro trails of Bandite Trail Area.
Andrea showed the riding students how to attack the trail.
Davide Contini is hoping to do the Enduro World Series race in Punta Ala this year, and wanted to spend time on the bike perfecting his handling skills.
The last run of the day was when everyone decided to pedal up the hill.
Thanks and see you next time. We will be running an Enduro World Series Training course after the 24th of April for beginner to intermediate riders. Once the race details have been published. Stay Tuned.
