Beginners rally raid training camp

Beginners level of rally raid training

These beginners rally raid training camps are created to get riders into rally navigation in a friendly mode, removing the stress and worry of the unkown. They are designed to create a community of riders who are interested in rally roadbook navigation. Some of these riders would possibly like to polish and scale their skill in the advanced rally training camps which will enable them to enter competition rally raids. 

The roadbooks are FIM specification in coloring and icons, so rider needs to know the icons and understand them (these infomations will be provided to you in advance).

Being in good physical condition so to have the necessary endurance for long days in the terrain is compulsory prerequisite. It is also important for safety reasons.

Camp is a 3 day long experience, comprised of 4 hour classroom introduction and lecturing. Introductory lecture delivers how to initially combine reading of the roadbook with vision on the trail and reading the landscape into a single in tune operation. We will also cover practical use of navigation equipment, the roadbook interpretation, tulip reading, marking them up in a mode that suits you and understanding of the navigation equipment and how to use it properly.

Immersing these techniques into a single in tune operation is the key technique to safely move and navigate the terrain.

These tehniques will be practiced for 2 riding days during which the riders will receive 2 training roadbooks. Being out there in a real environment will give riders the ability to develop their understanding of the above mentioned techniques while being monitored by instructor. Instructor will later deliver the before and after roadbook stages assesment for each group participant. They will take into account how well they managed to combine their riding skill level and understanding of the roadbook navigation to the vision on the trail and reading the terrain.

There will be evening briefings to analyze the events of the past day and comment on the roadbook of the following day.

Training stages are time monitored using gps satellite beacon's mounted on the bikes, serving as a base for safety but also as a framework for later assesing the riders ability to apply the learned techniques.

Riders will get the opporuntunity to train using paper roadbooks and also digital tablet set ups, paired with RNS multicontrolers and tripmasters. 

Beginners rally raid training camps will be delivered in Croatia.
