Post Casey Stoner, special guest at the DRE Enduro



Casey Stoner, special guest at the DRE Enduro
  • Two days dedicated to relaxation and off-road riding in Tuscany for the former MotoGP world champion, guest of the new Ducati riding school
  • Casey loved the location as well as the versatility of the Multistrada 1200 Enduro
  • “I can't describe how much I enjoyed it” Stoner said following the two days spent at the DRE Enduro

Nipozzano (Florence, Italy), 13 July 2016 - After appreciating the characteristics of the Multistrada 1200 Enduro on the hillsides around Bologna, Casey Stoner decided to take part in the DRE Enduro in order to find out more about the new off-road riding school organised by Ducati. Following the 2016 World Ducati Week and its mass of fans (81,000 attendees from all over the world) he allowed himself a couple of days of enjoyment and relaxation with his family at Castello di Nipozzano, not far from Florence, where the new Ducati riding school has its base.

DRE Enduro is the Ducati off-road riding course which provides anyone with the desire to use their motorcycle to discover new horizons with the opportunity to acquire all the necessary skills and know-how.

The two-time MotoGP world champion followed the programme organised by Beppe Gualini, a widely experienced former Dakar rider and current technical director of DRE Enduro. The programme included two days of off-road riding in one of the most beautiful and exclusive areas of Tuscany, alternating exercises and extreme-situation simulations with pleasant motorcycle excursions or more technical marked-out practice routes.

“I don’t have words to explain my weekend, it’s been awesome”, said Casey at the end of his stay at Nipozzano. “The Frescobaldi family estate is really something special and it’s so beautiful to look out of the hotel window over most of Tuscany. It’s a perfect place for a riding experience like the DRE Enduro!”.

“Basically you can’t really explain to people how good this bike is, you just have to experience it. I’ve spent enough time on dirt-bikes in my life and riding such a big bike like the Multistrada 1200 Enduro can be a little bit daunting at first, but after a couple of hours on the bike I was already very comfortable, and then I realized that you can basically go wherever you want to. It’s fun and you can really go out into the bush with the bike and enjoy it for the day. Riding through the hills of Tuscany is amazing: you just can’t believe what you are doing with the bike and where you are riding. It makes the experience so much better, and off-road I believe this bike is second to none.”

The Australian continued: “You are always cautious in the beginning with bikes as big as this, but both Beppe Gualini and Andrea Rossi (DRE instructor and one of the testers who developed the Multistrada 1200 Enduro) have been fantastic in making the transition a little easier, giving me a few pointers to ride the Multistrada. I started to push pretty hard in the end and everything I did the bike responded and said to me to go another level. You couldn’t reach the limit of the bike in the trails and although some of them got very steep and rocky, the bike never lost its footing and it felt safe over every obstacle. This bike is truly exceptional, very comfortable to ride and something very special.”
