New Zealand’s top enduro bike riders are teaming up with Agricademy to deliver farm bike safety workshops across the country from early July to the end of September.

Off road bike gurus Kylie Dorr, Rachael Archer, Wil Yeoman and James Scott will share their championship winning skills and techniques with farmers.

Learn about how the skills used in racing can keep bike riders safe on farms. The body positions, the way pro riders navigate obstacles and maneuver up and down hills, are all skills transferable to the farm riding environment. While racing often emphasizes speed, enduro bike riders true talent lies in safe handling and using their skills through controlled speed. We aim to showcase an approach focused on mastery over machinery.

The course follows an online workbook and a simple online quiz ahead of a practical four-hour bike safety workshop.

Worksafe says the common causes are not riding to the conditions, not paying attention to the terrain and inexperience.

This collaboration is a great opportunity for farmers to boost their bike safety and learn from elite athletes. Our champions want to give back to farming and these workshops will share techniques to keep riders safe on the job.
