The Academy of off road riding began in 1978 and has taught almost every Australian Motocross Champion from Jay and Ryan Marmont and even the great Chad Reed and almost every Off Road Champion from AJ Roberts and Josh Strang to Shane Watts, but it is not just about teaching the best riders how to win races, it is about teaching anybody who wants to enjoy the freedom of dirt biking to ride smoothly and safely on the track or the trail! Even the Australian Defence Force and Police use the Academy for their elite squads!
Why would you trust your dirt bike education to anyone else??
We offer courses over 2 and 5 days at various locations around Australia and we also have our own state of the art dirt bike training facility at Batemans Bay in NSW where we run course’s on a regular basis.
The Academy of off Road Riding was as the brainchild of Stephen Gall who was a 4 times Mr Motocross and multiple Australian Champion. Gall travelled the length and breadth of this vast country spreading good motocross technique and training methods, current boss Lyndon Heffernan who worked alongside Gall (and still does today at the AIS with M. A elite groups and Yamaha Team training) took over in 2001.
Today the Academy specializes in off road training after Heffernan created the Australian Institute of MX in 2006 Y-AIM as it is know has grown from strength to strength conducting specialized Motocross training all over the country! A link to Y-AIM can be found from this site if you are into MX or SX !
The Academy still does it’s great 5 Day Camps at Dargle each April and October and has MX/ SX groups as well as Trail /Enduro groups and it is still the best introduction to a dirt bike to attend a 5 day Academy camp no matter if you want to be a Trail rider Enduro racer or Motocross and Supercross star!
The Academy also now has been holding Adventure Bike courses for 5 years, these are small group situation and are run over two days at various locations around the country.
