We’ve designed Australia’s most comprehensive training course for you, the adventure rider.
We help you build on your strengths and address the areas to help you maximise your riding enjoyment.
Most rider training courses run for one or two days. The Maschine Adventure Riding Academy runs for 4 days and is designed to cover more than just riding skills; you will also learn some of the “soft skills” including trailside repairs, GPS & navigation skills plus much more. The breakdown is approximately 70% rider training, 30% other skills training.
This is a “live in” training camp where all riders and instructors stay on site at the same accommodation with the education continuing into the night once the riding is done for the day. Basically you get to eat, breath and sleep adventure riding for 4 days!
The skills cover in this course include:
Some of the skills will be developed in a controlled environment. Some of the training will take place in the classroom. Some of the training will take place out on the trails where we will tackle whatever comes our way!
Lead coach for all Maschine training courses is company director Nick Selleck. He is a Motorcycling Australia accredited coach and has been riding off-road for 40 years. He takes pride in being a smooth, safe and consistent rider. Several years spent racing MX, Enduro and Supermoto gave Nick a great skill set to call upon. More recently he has clocked up big kilometres each year riding in both Australia and overseas. This constantly tops up his knowledge pool and keeps his experience fresh and relevant to the students he teaches.
As part of the program Maschine will consult with you prior to the course to see what you want to get out of it and what skills you would like to work on. Follow up will include photos and video posted in our gallery so you can review your own technique during the course.
Included in the Maschine Adventure Academy package is:
The venues chosen for this course include quality 4 star accommodation in rural settings so we can concentrate on the learning.
When asked where the motivation came from for this course Maschine’s Nick Selleck had this to say “Some 20 odd years ago I attended a 5 day motocross camp. The lessons that I learnt during that school have stuck with me for all this time because it was such an immersive training environment. My goal is replicate that with our 4 day Adventure Riding Academy. There is so much adventure riders have to become proficient with in order to successfully complete the big ambitious expeditions that many of us aspire to do.”
