Xplorearth organized the first Dhorra-Kross for motorcycles in February this year, with the event having only been for 4x4s in the past. The aim of the event, as always, was to impart training and knowledge to ensure that the riders participating ended up far more confident and able on sand than when they arrived.

Date : FEBRUARY 14-19, 2022


The riders arrived at Mandawa to complete their registration formalities, gear check etc. – and to familiarize themselves with the team of instructors and fellow riders alike.

The riders departed Mandawa for Bikaner. The total day’s riding was just short of 200 km – a mixture of sand and tarmac. Handling the bike on sand was the main course of the day, as the group encountered sand tracks within minutes of leaving the hotel. A challenging day for all.

Day 3 was a ride from Bikaner to Jaisalmer, totaling around 350 km. Tricky sand sections were par for the course, with the level 2 and even level 3 dunes at Mayakor, depending on the risk appetite of the riders involved. The dunes were truly a baptism by fire, but the riders completed the day far more confident on the tricky surface than when they began.

Day 4 comprised a mixture of dirt, tarmac and sand. Dune climbing techniques were explained in detail and riders spent the day acquainting themselves with the sand. The second half of the day comprised a beautiful tarmac stretch to and from the Longewala War Memorial.

The return leg from Jaisalmer to Bikaner was a challenging one. The day even included an old Desert Storm Stage to show the participants just how hard a sand stage in the afternoon heat can be! A certification ceremony and celebrations followed!

Riders departed for their respective destinations post breakfast.

Dhorra Kross imparts the fastest training for riding on sand, with riders going from paddling to riding standing in just 4 days! An unforgiving surface, the correct tutelage and backup is paramount to taking on the desert, and the riders went back with plenty of learning, new skills and memories alike.
