ADVANCED RIDER TRAINING POWERED BY YAMAHA CHAMPIONS RIDING SCHOOL (YCRS).
UtahSBA excited to partner with the Yamaha Champions Riding School (YCRS) to develop an ART curriculum that’s based on the proven success of the YCRS program. Champ School principal instructor, Nick Ienatsch, will train UtahSBA coaches. In addition to training UtahSBA instructors, Nick is one of the founding members of the Utah Sport Bike Association.
The Advanced Rider Training (ART) course is committed to a quality rider education experience at a reasonable cost. UtahSBA firmly believes that an educated, skilled, and trained rider is a safer rider. The ART program helps accomplish these goals.
ART teaches a set of skills developed and practiced by the best motorcycle riders in the world, including the fundamental skills of vision, braking, accelerating, and managing changes of direction. The training consists of a mix of classroom instruction and discussion, parking lot drills, and significant track time where riders put their new skills to practice in a controlled environment.
ART classes are designed to be an unintimidating introduction to spirited riding in the safest environment possible, and can be beneficial to riders of all experience levels and disciplines. Classroom and parking lot drills are completed as a class, and once you move to the on-track portion, you will be grouped by skill level with several different instructors so that you can practice what you’ve learned throughout the day at your own pace.
Enrollment is limited to 30 students per event.
During the week before the event, you’ll receive an email with specific instructions regarding where the classroom is for your ART program. Check-in is promptly at noon with the school starting shortly thereafter. We break into two basic sessions with several “small groups” in each session to assure that you get the individual attention you want.
Our “Street” session will be biased towards language targeted at street situations where our “Track” session will focus more on improving closed course performance. While the skills are the same, the way we USE the skills may be different and as such we divide our classes appropriately.
