Chris Birch Bringing His Adventure Bike Training To US For First Time

A chance to learn techniques from one of the best big-bike riders in the world.

Published on 06.13.2022

Legendary enduro rider, Chris Birch, will finally make the U.S. an upcoming stop for his sought-after Adventure Bike coaching clinics. As you know, the New Zealand native is an accomplished off-road racer having won both the Roof of Africa and Red Bull Romaniacs hard enduros in the past. He is also an eight-time NZ National Enduro Champion and Dakar Rally finisher. Yet, Chris is arguably best known for his YouTube antics on big KTM adventure bikes that seem to defy the laws of physics. 


Luckily for all of us, Chris also enjoys teaching others how to ride like a hero. He has been an off-road trainer since 2007, getting his start to raise funds for his racing efforts. Chris soon learned he had a strong passion for sharing his knowledge and techniques and now teaches regularly at his school in New Zealand while also traveling frequently to run coaching clinics around the world.

The enduro champ is now bringing his coaching talents to the mountains of Georgia and Utah this Summer in collaboration with Moto Adventure Tours. In August and September, a few lucky souls will get a chance to absorb some of his vast knowledge, get personalized tips, pick his brain on anything, and no doubt improve their off-road skills on adventure bikes significantly.

Chris’ background as a mechanical engineer gives him a unique perspective in allowing him to break down the physics of any riding technique and describe each step required to master it. If you’ve ever checked out his how-to video series “Say No To Slow,” you’ll get an idea of his attention to detail and how he can make the complex easy to understand.

The two-day clinics will entirely focus on off-road skills for both Adventure and Dual Sport riders with classes split into intermediate and advanced levels to keep pace and goals similar among riders. Each clinic will accommodate a maximum of 15 riders with Chris and his assistant coach there to make sure everyone gets the individual attention they need. “A lot of common feedback I get from our customers is that they love the small group, because there is an opportunity to ask questions and get help specifically where you are struggling and I really enjoy getting to know the riders,” says Chris. 

Chris’ coaching clinics in the U.S. will run at two venues: KTM World – Highland Park Resort in Georgia and Jorgensen Powersports in Utah.
