Our courses are very easy but “even if it is not mandatory” the best thing you can do is a one day enduro course with a qualified instructor. The course will allow you to acquire the fundamentals you need in Off Road riding and then have fun in absolute safety during the 1000 SASSI.
During the year, we organize paid riding courses with instructors authorized by the Italian Motorcycle Federation (cost € 120-220 approximately) and we also provide participants with a light enduro bike and all the necessary clothing.
At the moment these courses take place in Lazio and Emilia Romagna but soon other regions of Italy will be included. If you are interested contact us and we will guide you.
Yes, but spoked wheels would be preferable.
No, because in any case you would not have fun and would also risk ruining the bike and hurting yourself.
Unless you are good at off-road riding we would say no. Road tires are not safe on these types of routes. For the 1000 SASSI we recommend semi-knobby tires, suitable for both asphalt and dirt roads.
We recommend the Metzeler Karoo 3 or the Pirelli Rally Street because they are highly safe and performing tires, both on dirt and asphalt.
Yes, we have on-site tire supply and assembly service, but you must book them up to 30 days before the event.
If you do not have enduro clothing “THAT IS NOT MANDATORY” we recommend the following:
- Cordura motorcycle jacket and pants with protections and back protector.
- On/off tourism boots with rigid plant. An excellent model are the Alpinestar Toucan in goretex or similar. If you don’t have them and you don’t want to buy them, you can use your touring motorcycle boots.
- Light motorcycle gloves.
- Motorcycle helmet with mask or visor.
- A backpack containing a container with water, supplements and a snack.
It is an electronic file on which a route to follow is recorded. Specifically for the 1000 SASSI you will have 3 electronic GPX files one per stage. To read GPX files you can use
a navigator capable of reading these files after loading them into it. The navigator will then show you the way.
There are the following three alternatives:
- You can use a normal SmartPhone or I-Phone and use an App that can read GPX files.
- You can have a specific turret mounted on your bike in order to read the paper Road Book, but in addition to being expensive this solution is not recommended because it is not easy to use immediately (you need a minimum of practice).
You can rent and use the Tripy, which is an electronic Road Book providing not only the navigation route but also other important indications like the type of road surface (if it is muddy, with gravel or with loose stone etc), the lengths of the paved and unpaved sections and indications about when the dirt track is about to end and the paved track begins (or vice versa) etc.
The Tripy can be easilly mounted with a special clamp on the handlebar of your motorcycle, it works with its internal battery and during the stage it does not need a power socket for charging.
The TRIPY IS VERY EASY TO USE. Once rented, if you want, you can share the cost with other participants.
