With over 8 years riding experience, Dan is familiar with the sport of enduro and can bring his recent experience with city’s rapid response team to guide course participants through common emergency scenarios.
The seminar will include both classroom and practical accident scenarios, drills, and practice. Agenda topics include:
- Anatomy & Physiology 101

Requirements: As there are a limited number of vacancies (20), prior registration is required. As we expect this seminar to be quite popular, vacancies will be allocated on a priority basis to those members wishing to volunteer as guides/sweeps during club rides. However, everyone with an interest is encouraged to register. Participants are encouraged to dress appropriately and come prepared to participate in practical classroom demonstrations.
