The course covers common road situations and focuses on how to tackle them using specific riding techniques. The exercises take place in a controlled and organized environment in the paddock, where road-based emergency situations are simulated.
These drills were specifically designed to teach you how to maintain better control of your bike in different conditions, and how to avoid potentially dangerous, everyday situations. Under the guidance of our experts you'll start noticing improvements immediately.
The day culminates in a double track session that will introduce you to riding controlled and fluid track lines. You'll leave this course a safer and more confident rider.
The intermediate course is divided into groups of six (up to a maximum of 42 riders), with each group led by an expert instructor. Some bikes are used in rotation.
The intermediate course consists of alternating practice and theory sessions. The on-bike practice features a series of 7 exercises performed in the paddock: braking, braking with an obstacle, going around a hairpin bend, double cornering, cornering in sequence, constant radius cornering and variable radius cornering. Since 2012, in partnership with Bosch, participants have been trained to use ABS on Monster and Multistrada.
After completing the paddock exercises, the afternoon programme starts with a technical briefing followed by two 20-minute track sessions. You'll enter the track accompanied by your instructor, who will safely guide the group around. You will have the track to yourself - no riders from other courses will be on the track during your session.
The required gear includes leathers, gloves, boots and a full-face helmet. If you can't provide any of these items, you can hire them when you purchase a course online at www.ducati.com (see the 'Clothing requirements' section for complete details on the required gear).
You must have a motorcycle licence (without engine displacement restrictions) to participate in the intermediate course.
