Ducati DRE Enduro Off-Road Riding Academy Announced

Ducati announces the debut of an all-new, exciting rider training program called Ducati DRE Enduro. If you're familiar with the DRE, which is short for Ducati Riding Experience, then it shouldn't take you too long to figure out how things roll with this new program.

The name is more than self-explanatory: Ducati is putting together a training program that aims to turn the students into riders with better skills for tackling the unwelcoming terrain. We already told you about the "Enduro class" when we announced the details of the track-focused Ducati rider training academy, but things are now on the move.

Mimicking the way the initial Ducati Riding Experience events are set up, the Enduro section will also welcome all types of riders, from off-road novices to the most experienced. The students will be divided into small groups, based on their experience and riding skills.

Unlike in other DRE sessions that offer multiple bikes according to the students' level, the DRE Enduro is a Multistrada 1200 Enduro-only training program.

This particularity might be a slightly exclusive one, considering that shorter riders might be intimidated by the new Ducati maxi-enduro machine, or simply find it too big and heavy for them. This is why we believe that paying a visit to the nearest Ducati dealer that carries the Multistrada 1200 Enduro would be a wise thing. If you're not sure how suitable this bike is for you, getting a close-up experience beforehand could sort things out.Training at the Castello di Nipozzano
The Ducati DRE Enduro will take place on the grounds of Castello di Nipozzano, a fort 30 km (19 miles) from Florence, on the estate of the Marquis of Frescobaldi. Qualified instructors, headed by former Paris-Dakar rider Beppe Gualini, will carry out theoretical and practical sessions over a total of 36 hours.

Courses will take place from June to September 2016, as follows:

June 3-4, 2016
June 4-5, 2016
July 15-16, 2016
July 16-17, 2016
September 2-3, 2016
September 3-4, 2016
September 16-17, 2016
September 17-18, 2016.
