Race Track Training

Hard Enduro races are a real challenge. Be well prepared if you go and participate as a hobby rider. Know exactly what awaits you. Off-road tracks always look easier on YouTube filmed on a GoPro than they are in reality. Testing your abilities in a training lets you know whether you’re ready, and gives you the confidence you need. Our enduro motorcycle guides are regular participants in these races in Romania, have won numerous medals, and are the perfect tutors for you.

  • Real race track, or matching terrain.
  • Local tutors who know the tracks and participate in hard enduro races.
  • At your pace, for your level.
  • Learning and improving techniques, and getting lots of background info and tips.

This is a unique opportunity. Before going on an official race track we acquire the permission from the race organization.

Cost

EUR 700.- for a 2-day training, including 1 hotel night with breakfast.

Includes bike, protective gear, hotel, breakfast, transport from Cluj-Napoca (2-3 hours one way).

Excludes insurance (up to you), lunch/dinner and beverages (very affordable in Romania), bike damage.

See our detailed price list.

What you’ll train

You’ll exercise what you want to learn, according to your level. If you’ve never been to a race, then topics to cover are:

  • properly passing other riders, and letting other riders pass you
  • equipment and gear you need
  • navigating the race track (spotting color bands, using GPS), and what to do if you lost your track.
  • proper body position in various situations
  • conserving energy. it’s all about conserving energy.

Which race category is for you?

Hard enduro races are for professionals, aspiring professionals, amateurs and hobby riders. They usually share the same base track, with deviating paths in between. Races often come with the categories “gold“, “silver” and “bronze” aka “hobby“. Gold is for professional riders, like Graham Jarvis and Manual Lettenbichler. Silver is for the next generation of pro riders, and skilled enthusiasts, those who spend every weekend on the bike, and are physically in shape. Bronze aka hobby is for enthusiasts and seasoned hobby riders, people who spend 20+ days each season on the hard enduro bike.

Most hobby riders don’t compete to win – they compete to finish, to make it in time to the finish line. By far not everyone is able to arrive. Some try to be faster than their buddy. Finishing, without injury, and having a lot of fun, is our recommended target for hobby riders. A result a hobby rider can be proud of.

Some races are easier to finish, for example Hard Enduro Heniu, others are tougher, for example Romaniacs. After seeing your enduro riding level we can advise you which race to tackle first.

Requirement

Prior enduro or hardenduro riding experience. Hard enduro race videos on YouTube always look much easier filmed on the rider’s GoPro than they are in real. The camera flies over obstacles and loose rocks, and the path looks flat even in places where it’s so steep that one can barely stand.

Paul is such an amazing guy and guide! I had a blast driving in the mountains with him. Easy to communicate with prior to the tour, a very good teacher and it really shows that he loves what he does. He will adjust the difficulty for your circuit depending on how proficient you are on an enduro bike so don’t hesitate if you’re a beginner, intermediate or expert driver. Highly recommend! Thanks again Paul! I’ll come back one day hopefully.

This was the fourth time I booked with Enduro Nuts and they never cease to impress me! I live in London so I try and go out on rides with them whenever I come visit family in Romania. The ride was amazing and the bikes were top notch and well maintained as always. We booked a full day trip next to Cluj and we had a blast. Safety was always the main priority and we could always choose whether we wanted to go across a feature or not. The gear was clean, new and it perfectly fitted my body. (They ask you about your sizes during the booking process if you don’t have your own gear). The staff was super friendly and gave me very helpful advice on my technique. The ride improved throughout the day because of the great coaching I received.

Thank you Paul for that great experience! I was having two days of Enduro training and tour as an „experienced“ street bike rider without any off-road knowledge. I was getting great tips and exercises to challenge my self and improve my ride. And all of this was done on the ride, so I enjoyed the landscape and saw my improvement. Due to the personalised tour I felt safe at all time. Thanks again!
