Cross Training Enduro Skills provides free video tutorials on trials riding tips, enduro riding techniques and other aspects of dirt bike techniques, based heavily on Tim Coleman's coaching. We are a like-minded group of mostly middle-aged riders who are in the early stages of dementia with many body parts rapidly heading south due to gravity. Why are the vids free, and have no ads? We are dirt bike socialist bastards and not into money, just keen to volunteer time toward the international dirt bike community - even though we barely know what we are talking about. But if any filthy rich capitalists want to support us and getting some extra vids in the process... visit our support page. :)
WHERE DO WE RIDE?
We ride in many places along the east coast of Australia as far north as Bundaberg and even down to Melbourne. A massive thanks to the many guys who let us ride on their properties. Sorry the owners have asked us not to reveal the locations for obvious reasons. And we prefer not to be too specific about our riding spots anyway.
HOW CAN WE MAKE TRAINING VIDS WHEN WE CAN BARELY RIDE?
Good question! We carefully research all the existing information out there on various enduro techniques and endurocross riding tips, talk with top riders like Tim Coleman, try to learn them ourselves, fail miserably, then get drunk and come up with the silliest most inaccurate riding vids we can. Oh and we are closely linked with the Western Districts Trials Club. Trials riders have very low IQs and poor personal hygiene so we all along together quite well. They share riding tips too. You can be sure of Tim Coleman's input, just check out his enduro vids:

DO WE HAVE OTHER YOUTUBE CHANNELS?
Hell yes. We not only provide inaccurate crappy vids about enduro riding, but offer further nonsense for trials riders and adventure riders... as if there wasn't enough garbage on Youtube already. There should be a law against it, but there isn't yet, suckers.
MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE EVIL GUMBY OVERLORD
The old fart who is the driving force behind Cross Training Enduro Skills has a background in graphic design, videography, writing, social work and all things arty farty - his skills in each area is almost as bad as his riding. Over the years he has has created various bike-related blogs, websites, Wikipedia pages, Youtube video series, GPS files for adventure riders, and dozens of public rides for local dirt and adventure riders... all for free, unsponsored and he hasn't made a cent from them. Most people quite sensibly say "you are talking complete nonsense, please leave us alone". You are advised to react the same way to all his online content. At the request of many viewers he finally went full time on the enduro videos. All the training vids and many others remain publicly available, but four ride vids each month are now available only to supporters.

We like getting genuine emails, honestly! But the vast majority are spam or questions that belong on a motorbike forum. And it takes hours every day to answer to respond to video comments, forum posts etc so we are trying to cut down on email time too.
