Time to elevate your driving and riding skills

Up your driving and recovery skills with 7P and Land Rover

Have you ever driven past a road and wondered . . . where does that go? Part of the experience of overland travel is the ability to explore unknown roads. Whether you need to brush up on your skills, advance your current driving techniques, or are just getting to know what you can do with your vehicle, Overland Expo 2016 WEST has a class for your level. Some of the premium classes include Tech Essentials: Intro to 4WD Systems; Advanced Driving: Braking with the wrong foot; Recovery Scenarios When All Else Fails; Advanced Recovery: Using all the tools at your disposal; Advanced Driving: Water Crossing; Traction Control: Learn when the “nanny” is both right and wrong; Pulling Power: How to create and use a mechanical advantage system. This year we have lots of new material, so come and learn from the experts of 7P and Land Rover the skills that get you going on any road.

Take your riding to the next level with RawHyde

Bikes big and small–hone your riding skills with Jim Hyde and the riding masters at RawHyde Adventures. Bring your motorcycle and learn a thing or two with classes such as Advanced Riding: Emergency braking (never know when you’ll need it); Advanced Riding: Lofting a front wheel (no this is not about doing wheelies); or Advanced Riding: Sand Skills Clinic. If you are just starting out, we still have you covered–take the extended, 3-hour class, Introduction to Dirt: Adventure motorcycle riding, then practice what you learned during the Basic or Advanced Adventure Motorcycle Ride.

Whether you explore on two wheels or four, our Driving, Riding, and Recovery classes are always the most sought-after programs. Each year we try to pack our schedule with as many as we can since they are so popular. This year is no different. To take any of the above classes (and many more), register for an Overland Experience package. The first to register get the first shot at sign-ups. We will be releasing class sign-ups the beginning of March, so don’t delay your registration.
