Track hours can change from open to closed even if the calender says open. Weather can close the track at any given time, The fastest way for me to update this is with the track and weather hot line. Everyone should call this number before you drive to the track to make sure the track is open for any normal practice day. Sunny at your house does not mean sunny at the track, and rain at your house does not mean rain at the track. The calender is only a guide for normal track and weather... (more...)

How Rest Improves Your Performance – Part 2 of 3 Exercise is a great habit to have within your daily life; however, when it becomes an obsession within your life it can actually become counter-productive to your overall health. Excessive training (in the form of volume and/or intensity) without adequate rest causes the body to become “numb” to external indicators of over training. Some over-training indicators include… Mood swings Craving of simple sugar Interrupted sleep Loss... (more...)
How Rest Improves Your Performance – Part 1 of 3 When it comes to human performance, you the racer need to follow a program that adjusts your training volume and intensity to avoid: Physical injury Developing a weak immune system Mental burn out By consistently adjusting your workouts, your body is on a schedule to “Peak” at exactly the right time – also known as your race date or personal goal date (as established on your goal profile).

Seat Bouncing Seat bouncing is a good technique to use when your approach into a jump is short and you need more height and/or distance and/or don’t have enough time to stand up for the jump. Since you’re sitting on the seat your body weight is going to go straight into the bike and therefore compress the rear suspension more, causing it to rebound harder and give you more lift (airtime) out of the jump. If you were standing your legs could absorb some of the compression and rebound, keeping... (more...)
Basic Jumping Techniques To execute the proper basic jumping technique you should be standing in the central body position. As the rear wheel rebounds from the jump you have to nudge your body position back, which will also cause you to nudge back on the handlebars. The steeper the jump face is and the faster you hit it the faster and harder you will have to nudge back in order to make the bike fly level or how you want it to fly (front end high or low). Okay so that’s how your body movement controls... (more...)
Holeshots Starts are sort of like gun fighting. A gun fighter has to be quick on the draw but at the same time he has to be smooth and have a good aim in order to hit the target before the target hits him. In motocross you also have to be quick and at the same time you have to be smooth with your clutch and throttle control and your body movements. If you mess up at least you won’t get shot but you may get run over in the first corner. There are three important aspects of the start. The... (more...)
SUCCESSFUL DEVELOPMENT OF AN ATHLETE-PART 2: Hormone Imbalances & Body Symptoms Last month, we discussed the fact that sleep and food plays are the foundational elements to the development of your strength, endurance and overall speed. Remember, you don’t get strong and fast by riding and cross training, you get strong and fast when you provide your body the elements that it needs to adapt and absorb the workouts (on or off of the motorcycle) – food for repair and sleep to recover the fatigued...

Clutch In or Out While Braking The rule of the track here is to leave the clutch out while braking so the engine helps slow you down and helps control the braking process. It’s kind of like anti lock brakes. The best stopping power is just before the rear wheel locks up and that’s just what leaving the clutch out will help you with. This is done when you’re still carrying some speed into the corner. If it’s a tight corner where you’re going to be slowing down to a slow speed in the... (more...)
