Marko Samec and Anton Krašovec, founders of Alkemist Adventures, envisioned Turn 2 Gravel as a pioneering off-road skill development program. Recognising the gap in riders’ abilities to handle big bikes off-road during Alkemist adventure tours, they saw the need to bridge this skill deficit. By leveraging the rich heritage of a 70-year-old motocross park, they brought together top off-road instructors and Dakar racers to create a comprehensive training regimen.

The result? A groundbreaking program designed to equip riders with the skills to master various surfaces, from gravel and grass to mud and sand. Turn 2 Gravel represents a fusion of tradition and innovation, redefining off-road riding.
