How would I know? It's pure speculation. Hopefully the rider in the video gets some help.

Ooh, this is my video! Yeah, this was indeed L2. The instructors had a hard time finding him because he never went to class. This was his first track day, and he didn't know classes were a thing. His front tire was also worn down nearly to the cords.

All around, I'd say this was a bit of a failure by Ridesmart's staff. But I showed them the video last year, and they've said that they've taken steps to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Yeah I have seen ridesmart this year turn around riders from entering the track if they didnt attend class. (They were handing out stickers to place on bikes when you went to class)
