UpSouth travelled up to Amersfoort to see what the buzz is about on Jan (Staal) du Toit's farm, headquarters of Country Trax Off-Road riding academy.
Just over two years ago, at the press launch of the BMW R1200 GS LC, Jan invited us to his training facility, to take us through the challenges and exercises.
Finally, after our Cross Country tour, we made time to visit Amersfoort, attending a weekend off-road course. It turned out to be one for the books!

From the moment we arrived at Jan's farm we felt right at home. A big fire going, a deliciously cooked meal by Jan's wife, and warm welcoming smiles. Throughout the weekend we've been spoiled with loads of food, patient instructors and a well laid out training facility.
A big thanks to Jan du Toit and Jolandie Rust, our BMW accredited instructors for the weekend. We are looking forward to our next visit!
