The team at Max Adventure contacted me after the Dirt Works 100km race and offered me a voucher to attend a 2 day Adventure First Aid course run by Adventure Medic. The voucher was offered as a thank you for stopping with an injured rider and friend out on the course until more qualified help arrived. A reward like this was completely unexpected, but needless to say, I’m pretty thrilled to have the chance to learn a lot more about what to do next time (and there will be a next time) I’m out riding and someone has a nasty fall. It’s good timing too, as my current Senior First Aid certificate will need renewing this year.
Enormous thanks to Max Adventure and to Adventure Medic for donating an entry into one of these courses. I’m looking forward to booking in a non-race weekend that lines up with the course calendar!
