More and more of you are taking to the mud, with enduro and motorcross training days full to capacity across the country and new schools launching all the time.

Many riders swear by the skills they learn offroading, and indeed many racers use it as a way to keep sharp over the long winter.

But does it benefit road riding? Does getting experience in slippy conditions perfect low-speed practice for winter, or is it completely removed from the roads?
