Renowned worldwide designer and manufacturer of motorcycle luggage and accessories, Givi, is partnering with Rimba Raid, Malaysia’s biggest off-road enduro race. As part of events leading up to Rimba Raid which will be held from July 26 to 28 in Rimba Valley Motor Camp in Janda Baik, Givi will be holding an off-road riding clinic.
Conducted by Givi brand ambassador Jeremias Israel together with Malaysian trials and stunt rider Acoi Pangkolo, the Big Trail Clinic will be held at Ulu Klang on July 20. Riders who are interested in learning riding skills from the Chile national champion and Dakar Rally racer can register their interest at Acoi’s Facebook page.
The one day clinic will cover skills such as throttle and clutch control, braking, advanced cornering, technical riding and tackling challenging terrain. Split into two sessions, the morning session will be classroom and demonstrations while riders get to practice their new found skills in the afternoon.
Before Rimba Raid, Givi Explorers will also be organising a fullly supported 10-day tour of Peninsular Malaysia, covering north to south, over a distance of more than 2,500 km. The Givi Explorers, who hail from around the globe, will be hosted by Givi Malaysia and shown the best of what Malaysia has to offer the visitor.
Now in its eighth edition, Rimba Raid is an enduro motorcycle race that takes places inside the Malaysian jungle and is designed to test both rider and machine. Emphasis is placed on bike handling skills rather than outright speed and riders are expected to be self sufficient, with a minimum of navigation aids and signposting.
