Desert Rose Riding Academy: The Girl On A Bike & Desert Rose
As seen on the Desert Rose Riding Academy: Vanessa Ruck, The Girl on a Bike, was with the Desert Rose Team this week delivering her kit for the upcoming Tunisia Desert Challenge which she is competing in, on a Desert Rose supplied, Beta rally bike.
The bike has been prepared by Desert Rose Dirt Tech and is now ready for some custom graphics to be applied. The Tunisia Desert Challenge is an 8 stage rallye, taking in infinite dune sections of the mythical El Borma to iconic Star Wars sites in Tunisia’s seemingly endless desert.
Whilst with us in Sussex, Vanessa took the opportunity to join us on one of our off road training days. Although already an experienced rider, having taken part in competitions from Red Bull Romaniacs to Valleys Xtreme, The 2021 Qatar Baja and the Rallye du Maroc, Vanessa threw herself into the exercises with enthusiasm along with the rest of the group.
We covered all the basic, underpinning skills needed for any off road rider, from body positioning and bike handing, to clutch control, braking on uneven and loose terrain, to tackling up hills, down hills and even a little technical stream crossing.
