Sweet Lamb DRE Adventure Academy

Ducati has officially opened its new Adventure Academy at the off-road centre at Sweet Lamb in mid Wales.

The Ducati Adventure Academy brings Ducati off-road motorcycles such as the Multistrada V4 S, Multistrada V4 Rally, DesertX, and DesertX Rally to the 6,600-acre Sweet Lamb off-road centre, and combines those with Ducati Riding Experience (DRE) off-road tutoring.

Taking place on private land intended for motorsport use (its gravel roads are also used for rally testing), the Sweet Lamb DRE Adventure Academy offers four levels of off-road training, from Rookie to Level 3. A Rookie day costs £295, and a two-day adventure weekend will set you back £599.

With the arrival of the DRE Adventure Academy to Sweet Lamb, the Welsh facility has also added a Ducati hospitality area, with Lavazza coffee on-tap and lunch available throughout the day. Bookings are now available on the DRE Adventure website.

The Sweet Lamb DRE Adventure Academy was opened with a press event, which Visordown’s Matt Robinson attended. After his two days of thrashing a DesertX through the Welsh gnar, Matt said: “I was a little nervous beforehand, having never ridden a motorcycle off-road, but expert tuition, a well-thought-out syllabus and the approachable nature of the DesertX meant I was happily ripping along in no time at all. For what punters are getting, it’s excellent value.” Stay tuned for our full report. 

On the opening of the Sweet Lamb DRE Adventure Academy, Fabrizio Cazzoli, Managing Director at Ducati UK, said: “We are delighted to welcome riders to the new Sweet Lamb DRE Adventure Academy. This is a true Ducati experience where riders can unleash their full adventuring potential, as well as enjoy the benefits of the latest Ducati technology. Regardless of their previous offroad riding experience, everyone joining us at the academy can enjoy the stunning location, world-class instruction, premium hospitality and the ultimate Ducati adventure bikes. This is a unique experience and another fantastic opportunity to build unforgettable memories with Ducati.”

Mark Molineux, Chief Instructor at Sweet Lamb, added: “We are very excited and honoured to be working with Ducati and helping bring the DRE Adventure Academy to the UK. With its carefully crafted training areas, seemingly endless network of trails, and unbeatable Welsh scenery, Sweet Lamb is the perfect UK home for the Academy. We can’t wait to show riders everything we have to offer them. The experience is world-class, with everything from the bikes and trainers to facilities fine-tuned to bring you the best of the adventure world.”
