Motocross / Enduro / Trial Riding

Dear Members.

I am looking for people to ride either Motocross / Enduro / Trials with.
(i.e. all offroad riding.)

I live in Zurich and currently riding with one other swiss friend. He has a van so we can at best transport another bike. But as he is sometimes busy, I am looking for more people to ride with.

Drop me a message if you are interested in riding together. I work as a free-lancer so I am flexible with my working hours.

Regards

Frederich

I normally go to Italy for few day trips but I guess you would need quite a bit of oil for that?

Re: Motocross / Enduro / Trial Riding

Hi Everyone just a small update.
So I have been actively riding now for the last 2-3 Months.

I am out most weekends on a Trial bike and Motocross machine.
Trials is good in Switzerland,
but for Motocross and Enduro I usually go to Germany or France. If anyone is interested in joining me on the weekends, I have one spot in my van to take someone with. If you want to take your machine with, a trailer might be a good idea. I live close to Meilen. I am always looking for people to ride with.

Cheers
Fred

Re: Motocross / Enduro / Trial Riding

I know it's winter, but I have a sudden urge to do some motorbiking. Because of corona I haven't done any big trip these year and now i am also recovering from Covid illness, so it seems like there will be no proper sport for me in near future. I need some activity.

Does anyone knows for some trail parks / schools that are operating in winter. I was googling and couldn't find much. I don't have a proper trail bike, but a light enduro and I would like to learn how to use it off the track. And i know it is forbidden to ride it in nature, so I cannot go falling into the nearest wood. Any ideas?

Re: Motocross / Enduro / Trial Riding

Enduro is illegal in Switzerland though we do sometimes hear two strokes in the less frequented forests. My husband does motocross with a local club in the spring through fall. There are a few fixed tracks in our area that you can pay to ride on but they are few and far between. They would probably be closed now I think. He keeps wanting to go down to Italy, sounds like thatís the place to go for great fixed tracks.

Re: Motocross / Enduro / Trial Riding

Thanks, yes, I know enduro is illegal and I googled "trial motocross site:ch", so I also found that most of the tracks are closed, probably because it's winter. Same is with enduro trainings, out of season. That's why I am asking here if anyone knows for something open.

Wasnít necessarily calling you out

I know thereís a motocross track somewhere near Bern but thatís about the extent of my regional knowledge. Otherwise everything I know is more in VD. And everything I know of is closed right now. Good luck with your search! Try perhaps local Facebook Moto groups? Weíve found that to be more helpful than Google searches.

Re: Motocross / Enduro / Trial Riding

The Beggingen track still open but very muddy, though last week had a great time there.
For enduro the track of Nirderbipp, kind of do its job.
If you want send me a PM with your whatsApp or so, we can get in contact for the next season.

Re: Motocross / Enduro / Trial Riding

Hi Nejc

If you are interested in Moto Trials, the Zurich club is active through out winter. There is a property where they train close to Riet / Windlach. https://www.twnclub.ch/

I haven't mustered up the courage to ride whilst it is so cold. Mostly local Swiss guys are in the club, so speaking some German would greatly help if you decide to check them out. It is opened on Saturdays, usually from + 10h00 onwards, but you have to wait for some of the members with a key, which can be a bit sporadic.

Good luck
Fred
