NEW YORK – October 11, 2017 – In the latest installment of Training Cell, the team takes to the high country of Idaho where they explore the capability of the Christini AWD 450 dirt bike with Jimmy King of Tactical Mobility Training. Capable of climbing steep and rugged terrain and an ideal platform for environments like Afghanistan, the bike pushes the team to their threshold ending with a few falls, bumps and bruises. The trailer can be viewed online, and the episode is live for subscribers now.
Rugged Mobility in Tough Terrain
Episode 8 follows the Training Cell team as they embark on a two-day course in Sun Valley, Idaho with expert Jimmy King of Tactical Mobility Training. A modern war machine, the Christini AWD 450 has the flexibility and maneuverability that operators need in tough, hostile terrain. The Spec Ops vets learn basic platform functionality—various controls, mechanics, starting and stopping—and work their way up to more advanced techniques like body positions, ascending and descending hills, reactionary drills and more.
“Navigating the unpredictable landscape of Afghanistan can be difficult, but with a platform like the all-wheel-drive Christini, it’s possible for military personnel to go almost anywhere,” said ex-Army Ranger Drew Wallace. “Training with Jimmy gave us the opportunity to put the bike to the test and see first-hand its extreme versatility on the hills of Idaho. We all came to the table with varying levels of motorcycle experience but each left with a new and important skillset. It’s hard not to see the value in a machine that can travel where feet, horses or pack animals can’t—especially in a tactical environment.”
Jimmy King is the owner of Tactical Mobility Training, a company based in Fayetteville, NC. Born from the understanding that wars and battles are often fought in remote locations, Jimmy developed a training regimen to educate and mentor operators who use light mobility platforms on a regular basis. Personnel from SOCOM, Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and British Special Forces have trusted Tactical Mobility Training’s staff of former Spec Ops personnel to train and prepare their operators for off-road conflicts for over 17 years.
