You'll never be alone. We will just get to look at your many times.

We all do the the same track together. You'd be surprised how fast/slow others are on dirt.

With all the gear it's not bad going down on dirt at those speeds... Ask Brad..Bsquared.. He fell over 20 times.. He was ok.., except he mentioned about going home with his foot pointing backwards....
Just joking.... It's pretty safe... Just remember to not use your legs to brace your fall..that will put pressure on your knee..

Out of curiosity, what protective gear do we wear?

Im pretty tough but I kinda exhausted all my pto hours at work last wreck. Cant afford to injure myself without pay.
Ive seen honey brawp badger n krazy brawp kris fall on dirt bikes (perhaps on purpose, who knows) and they just get back up n do it again.

Whats the possibility melissa will do this? Maybe street isnt her thing anymore but maybe this? She did mention she likes speed though.

Melissa has Jason and she needs some practice. She had been off 2 wheels for years am only had a few months experience begin with..

They provide:
Helmet:
Chest/ back protector
Elbow/ knee protector
Jersey with padding
Hip protector with padded pants
Knee high motocross boots (sidi)
Socks
Gloves
Goggles
Everything is available in men's/ women's and all sizes...
Gear is regularly cleaned, inspected and replaced. My gear last time... Along with many others was brand new..
Colin Edwards takes great pride in his business..

Also, this is not like motocross or super cross... No real jumps .. Mostly about track lines and sliding like flat track drifting.. But, with a lot of switchbacks... You are not really going very fast... But, you are doing a lot of work...

Boot camp is what it is... Gas..brake.. Slide ..body position... Gas out side ways... Trail brake into next corner.. And repeat... ALL DAY LONG....

Also some trail riding... Balance... Tight rope like stuff...

Over all pretty safe... Listen to the instructors...

So im guessing hes some kind of famous biker, guru guy huh? Thought he was a normal person.

If you can't afford to get injured, then you might not want to do it. You will fall. I broke my knee riding here on my 5th and final fall.

Yeah! That sucked... That's why you don't use your legs to brace the fall.. One guy broke his wrist too in the start of the day..

Collar bone breaks are common when falling off of two wheels as well
