Bagnoli Bike organised the weekend of the 9th and 10th of february 2013 in the beautiful Bandite trail area near Punta Ala, a professional training course with pro athlete and successful Enduro racer Andrea Bruno.

The methods and techniques were taught with Andrea Bruno giving detailed rider training on how to ride Enduro at the top level and teach riders from all levels how to improve their bike handling skills.

Davide and Alessandro Bagnoli organised with Poggiodiavolino an excellent course and program for training. I-mtb’s Alex Boyce was there to shoot the riders and show what happens on a weekend like this.
