Training

Why is Training important

    
We are the GS Giants and we ride all over. If there's an "adventure detour" available, we will typically take it. Dirt roads, rocky roads, sandy roads, no roads. We take a long way around to go to work or we are trying to find that one place behind the mountain where our cell phones do not have a signal. One way or another, we often find ourselves riding in places we normally shouldn't. That takes skill! And there is no better place to obtain the required skills than trained and certified professionals who have dedicated their lives to teaching us how to improve our riding and safely reach our destination or purposefully get lost!
     
For this reason, we have compiled a list of off-road riding schools around the world. From retired Dakar racers to World Champions and skilled individuals, they are all here to help you stay safe, rubber side down!
