Nope, it's for all levels of skill and all levels of involvement. You'll receive instruction on little dirt bikes, with the main focus of the training being getting acclimated to a loose motorcycle, and learning to control it. You'll get this training in the saddle of a mini motocross bike, doing all kinds of drills and exercises. This is not a motocross camp that teaches a "how to be a better motocrosser" agenda. Every single thing you learn on a little motorcycle translates directly to the big ones, including big street bikes. You will leave the camp sore and worn out, I promise, and you may even have a blister on your from spending all day in the saddle of a motorcycle. You'll also leave with a better understanding of how a motorcycle reacts to all sorts of rider and trail (road) input, and how you can make adjustments to always be in control. Dirt bikes, especially little ones, are one of the most useful tools ever for teaching to go fast on street bikes on a road course. Almost every National and World Champion cut their teeth on the dirt. The things you'll learn here will make you better dirt rider and a better street rider. And, best of all you'll receive instruction from Colin himself, one of the best riders in the world.

This is an unbelievable camp, and a cool place too!
The instructors have some familiar faces, but a completely different atmosphere and style.
This is some of the best money you can spend to enhance your core skills, bar-none, and it's close to home. Not to mention, you get to hang out with a World renowned racing star...

All of the tracks are in incredible shape and will test your ability for sure. The staff are so knowledgeable that everyone from the most basic beginner to the most seasoned and fastest roadracer will benefit greatly by attending!

Just an incredible place... and the weather yesterday couldn't have been better. It was like someone ordered it up or something.

fun stuff!

fun stuff!
there is so much learning to be done at camp.
cool people with lots of knowledge will strip your riding down to the bare bones, analyze it and show you how to take it to the next level.
it's going to be a hit, i think!

I would love to use my TTR in this class but I really dont want to pay for lodging since I have a cabin nearby and an RV I could use also. Looks like a really nice setup.
