After the last event was canceled due to rain, KMS have announced a new date for their "Schnuppercross" motocross beginners course: 4th July.

It's aimed at beginners either to motorcycling in general or to riding off-road, and people will be split into groups by ability.

The track is near Niederbipp, about half way between Bern and Zurich:

The course costs 120 CHF, plus 150 CHF to rent a motocross bike for the day. I think they can also rent helmets, boots, safety gear but I don't know how much they charge for that.
Update: Apparently all the bikes are now taken, so if you still haven't booked you'll need to have your own.

The organisers: http://www.kms-racing.ch/
The track: http://www.crosspiste.ch/info.htm

The main instructor, Marcel, has assured me that they can do the training in English, which is good because I don't speak any German. So go ahead and sign up - the more English speakers there, the better!

To book, email ramona@kms-racing.ch or call 055 240 71 55.

Re: Motocross Beginners Course

This sounds actually really interesting. I have never tried motocross really, but I have the license for a motorbike. I will decide a bit later. Maybe we could drive together from Zurich as well?

Re: Motocross Beginners Course

Would you know if it's common for them to get total motorbiking beginners? I can just about ride a bicycle, but that's it This is tempting...

Re: Motocross Beginners Course

Mx2000: Yes, I was planning to go by car, and could maybe give you a lift. What part of Zurich do you live in? I'm in Kreis 6.

int19h: I think they're expecting some total beginners. You could send Ramona an email and ask her just to be sure?

Re: Motocross Beginners Course

Hi reiko, that sounds good! I mean, of course we will split the costs of driving. I live in Kreis 7, but might be able to come to your place. I will send an email to Ramona later today and check some more details of what it costs to rent the full clothing, helmet and so on. I have a bike clothes, but they are too ugly

Re: Motocross Beginners Course

The good news: they do take total beginners!

The bad news: they are all out of bikes for that day!

Maybe some other time

Re: Motocross Beginners Course

Yeah, pity, I also got a reply from Ramona now saying they are out of bikes. But it might be that they will do a new course in the next few weeks, as so many people were interested. Let's hope for the next time!

Oh no, I'm sorry to hear that! They must have had a lot of interest, since I've seen their shop/garage and they have quite a few bikes.

Reiko, did you manage to get a bike and go there? Tell us how it went! The weather was great, so I can imagine you had a nice day there!

Re: Motocross Beginners Course

Wondering if after some years, people in this post where still interested in motocross track training. I will be moving to Zug soon and I wanted to ride off-road (enduro or cross) sometime .

Re: Motocross Beginners Course

@xchange, with Fred (Freddy17) we exchange contacts and we are trying to organise an event on a motocross track or enduro track at end or beginning of September. Will you be interested (as well as another else ?). We have moderate/beginner experience, so we are not planning any advance enduro trails but rainy or muddy conditions should not be avoided. It usually rains on weekends lately

Re: Motocross Beginners Course

Too bad I saw this only just now... Has a cross-group formed? If so, I'd love to hear about it! I started to experience the joy of motorcycling this year and have fantasized about trying motocross for a while now.
