New Riders School
The cost is absolutely FREE! (It's included with the cost of the track day.) The average class size is usually between 5-15 riders. (We try to keep the rider to instructor ratio at no more than 3-1.)
We aim to provide a safe, friendly environment where you can hone your riding skills and become a better, safer rider even on the street.
A snapshot of The New Riders School:
In the first classroom session all Level One riders attend. We cover basic track safety, the layout of the track and a few things about riding on the track in general. Then we assign each school rider to an instructor for the first track session. The first track session is the Lead/Follow where each rider gets to follow directly behind an instructor to learn the layout of the track and to learn the proper "Line". During these sighting laps we will start bringing you up to speed.
The second classroom/track session is the "Single Gear - No Brakes" drill. This is the best way to really learn the track and how fast you can go just by using the throttle to adjust and control your speed. It's amazing just how much our riders learn in that one session! We also cover basic reference points and what to look for when you're out on the track.
As the day progresses and you get faster and faster, we'll cover shifting and braking and body positioning. All day you'll be able to get one on one coaching from our instructors and loads of track time!
The classroom sessions are only about 20 minutes long and allow the riders to ask questions and talk with their track coaches between the on track sessions. By the end of the day our school riders have usually shown significant improvement in their riding skill and comfort on the bike and have really stepped up their track speeds! (Some of our school riders are even bumped up to Level 2 before the end of the day!)
If you've never ridden on a race track (or never ridden on this race track) and no matter what skill level you are, you're bound to learn something new at our TrackXperience New Riders School.
