 COURSES AND PROGRAMMES 2012

The school proposes lessons and complete courses which go from half a day to seven consecutive days. This peculiarity, unique in its sector, really meets all kinds of requirements of the participants. Everything begins with the meeting at the large hall of the Casa Sociale in Morca, the logistic headquarter of the school, where the registration formalities are dealt with. Later on, all the information and advice for both the development of the courses and the stay are given. During the complete courses one takes into consideration, besides the various techniques and experiences, various problems, such as athletic training and diet and problems of a mechanical nature; one examines the way for the participation in races. Of course, enjoyment is always in the forefront; at the end each pupil will remember his or her holiday with pleasure; besides reaching the purpose envisaged, they will have had a great deal of fun too.

The School has a considerable asset: the vehicles can be immediately repaired and taken care of; even in the most serious case, thanks to the collaboration with the specialist workshop, 10 minutes to get there –  no problem. Ultimately, one can hire the School’s equipment and start again.

VALSESIA, ONE OF THE BEST TRIAL AREAS WORLDWIDE

What could we say in addition to the above mentioned quotation, which cannot possibly be denied? Nothing. Anyway, so as to make that sentence  not appear be an exaggeratio, let us  illustrate some characteristics of Valsesia which prove that judgement:

  1. The altitude of the School seat is only 450 metres above sea level, though immersed in a complete trial environment. Therefore one must limit the activity owing to the snow just a couple of months a year, only in the most severe winters.
  2. Mountains and related itineraries at all altitudes, with the wonderful frame of Monte Rosa at over 4,000 metres, the second peak in Europe.
  3. The Sesia and its numerous tributaries run for  hundreds of kilometers along the main and side valleys, all  merged in the name Valsesia. Last but not least, the clearness of its waters, a paradise for establishing true contact with nature.
  4. We enjoy the support of Municipal authorities, agencies and sponsors who wish to promote the development of tourism on two wheels.
  5. Cableways, chairways and heliport for exciting daily downhill runs by mountain bike in breathtakingly beautiful scenery and particular environments.
  6. The geographical and topographical configuration of the area, together with the dense woodland make it a perfect place for trial biking. All types of terrain are available to anticipate any future competition run or itinerary. Lastly, the statement of many commentators: Valsesia, the greenest valley in Italy.

TRIAL, MOTORMOUNTAINEERING, MOUNTAIN BIKE, BMT, MOUNTAIN TRIAL: A VAST CHOICE

Everyday the Valsesia Trial School allows a considerable number of people to venture into for the first time or to improve their skill in the sports we have mentioned and, of course, all at the same time. All this is due to the number of  instructors available who, in small groups of 5 or 6 participants, are to be found throughout the luxuriant and vast Valsesian nature.

In any case, there is the problem of your choice at the time of registration. What should one do? Our suggestion is to take up the course which best suits you; the future development will be chosen by the School Management which, when making a selection in the first approach lesson, will form the group as homogeneously as possible. Do not forget that, in a matter of just a few days – and this will always be suggested  to each participant-you  will be able to try one of the sports you have not chosen.
