Because of the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, it’s currently impossible for him to travel and meet riders, but Birch is happy that, electronically at least, he can get this information out there during this time.
Spreading the word and awareness of these videos is the job he is now faced with and a quick call-out for help from BikesportNZ.com is one way that Birch knows this can be achieved.
In this 16-part, three-hour instructional series, Birch takes adventure riders through core skills like correct standing position and off-road bike set up, all the way through to jumping logs and high-speed slides. Along the way riders will learn techniques to become a safe and efficient rider and learn how to Say No to Slow.
Birch is a life-long motorcycle addict, winning the NZ enduro series multiple times, as well as extreme enduros such as the Roof of Africa and the Red Bull Romaniacs. Since competing in, and finishing, the Dakar Rally in 2012, Chris has developed a following in the adventure bike world, and is one of KTM’s highest profile adventure ambassadors.
After racing successfully for several years, he has transitioned more to coaching, and he has been teaching bike skills since 2007. Combining his passion and talent for riding, and his background as a mechanical engineer, allows him to break down the physics of riding and describe techniques in detail.
“I have created a series of instructional videos for adventure bike riders, drawing on over 30 years of riding bikes and more than 10 years of coaching 5000+ riders.
“In this instructional series, I take adventure riders through core skills like correct standing position and off-road bike set up, all the way through to jumping logs and high-speed slides,” he said.
“Teaching bike skills since 2007, my background as a mechanical engineer allows me to break down the physics of riding and describe techniques in detail.”
“We have been planning this series for over a year and we are excited to bring such great content and highly detailed information to our customers.
“It’s been something that we have thought about, discussed and had requests for over several years. Nothing will replace face to face coaching, however this is fantastic option for those wanting to build up skills if they can’t get to a clinic, or if they want refreshing of the information we’ve already given them.
“It’s nice in a way to launch it at a time when we know a lot of our customers and fans around the world are in varying stages of lockdowns, isolation and travel bans / restrictions, and might be craving something great to watch once they have finished Tiger King!”
