I’ve been on an Enduro training the last two days, here are some pictures:

The course was held at my dealer's, Bert von Zitzewitz Motorradhandel. His younger brother instructed us. His c.v. includes  participations  at the Rallye Dakar, first on a motorbike, now as a navigator in a Toyota Rallye car. Here he is in the middle of the picture.

On a tour on the second day, this fallen oak tree blocked the way but served well as a stage for a group photo. So, here are the guys!

Even a detour through the rape field didn't work, but it decorated this guy's bike nicely.

Near Malente, we came upon another Motocross track that was much more sandy . Sand is for the advanced Enduro rider! We had some among us and they succeeded! I just made a pit with my front wheel.

Next rest stop was on the Malente lake.

As you can see, nearly no one in the group rode a proper Enduro bike, it was a course for Travel Enduro riders. We learned how to attack a mountain with a mountain…

Oh, and kids, don't try this at home. Otherwise your bike may rest very stable on it's side in wild garlic like mine did  this morning. Tried 3/4  of an hour to get it out of there on my own and was lucky to get help from a farmer who mowed a nearby field. It is not named Enduro for nothing!
