These were from Eric Waunch's Motocross School, Dec 10th at the Monroe Arenacross track. It taught focusing on body positioning, bike set-up, jumping, cornering, passing, braking, starts etc. He knew how to start, 1-2-1 shift and a little trail riding but was the only beginner there to mx track. All the other kids were racers on mx bikes while he was on his JR80 (more of a trail bike). Within 2 hours he was riding the whole course. By the end of the day (7am to 4pm) he was getting pretty agressive and showed more of an improvement then I could have taught him in a year. Having the other kids there really helped to push him.

He is the one on the right. All blue gear, yellow bike.

Can you guess what happened next.....


Yep..over the bars again then another bike landed and crashed onto him as well within a second of taking the picture. Both riders were ok and kept on going. I was freaked a little being so close. "Over protective dad"

Last pic of Nico breaking for lunch. I think he lost a couple pounds with the amount he was sweating even though it was 45 degrees in there.

I was such a dork dad. The only one there with both the digital camera and the digital video.

Great day.

sorry for the full size I uploaded at 2am.

He had an adult class the week before. I will do a begineer adult on the WR250f pretty soon. Nico wants to get back on the track soon.

I want to cross train him as much as possible between trail and MX on the dirt and Pocket bike track time.

He will be pocket bike race training in Jan-Feb as well. We are competing OMRRA this season with 9 racers (Nico included).

That's cool.

The reason why I was asking is because I don't see too many things for big-kids instruction on dirt. If anyone is interested in more learning, 2-Fast is organizing dirt trackdays for the big kids. It seems that this would be a good opportunity for those that are getting into dirtbikes or looking for more challenge/building skills.

Check it out at www.2-fast.org
