On a coaching day there is
25 riders with a dedicated coach who manages a group of students with
structured coaching, including step by step approach to corner entry,
mid corner and corner exit. We also work on vision, braking and anything
else we can see would improve your riding.
Each group has on
track and off track coaching, we have a dedicated section of track that
we use to give instant feedback to the students, this way they are
prompted constantly then they put into practice through the rest of the
day’s on track coaching sessions. There are normally three groups which
sometimes includes a group of junior riders so each rider feels
comfortable with other students of similar experience.
There is plenty of riding through the day so ideal to transport your bike to and from if possible and bring some extra fuel.The
cost of the coaching day for participants is $300 which includes Subway
lunch, drinks & coffee, it is the perfect way to lead into track
days which take place on the following day. One day licenses are $30.
Please contact the club through the firstname.lastname@example.org with any other questions, hope to see you at a coaching day soon, or fill in an entry form from our Calendar page to book your spot today.
