Good news for those saddened to hear the Yamaha Champions Riding School would not return to Miller Motorsports Park in 2014: the school is back, now operating from New Jersey Motorsports Park.

The change in venue doesn’t come without a slight change in the instructor lineup. Nick Ienatsch and Ken Hill will still lead the way, joined by Mr. Daytona himself, Scott Russell, but a new addition to the star-studded instructor lineup has also been added: none other than Larry Pegram. No word yet as to whether the rest of the gang from the school’s days in Utah will be making the trip out east.

Otherwise, the Yamaha Champions Riding School will remain much the same as it has always been. Students can look forward to two- and three-day classes that feature the techniques needed to increase the joy and safety of motorcycling. A new feature for YCRS includes at-track housing and group dinners, as YCRS nurtures a sense of community. This Yamaha Champions Riding School community will extend far beyond the course into track days, overseas tours, online support through webinars, Smart TV episodes, travel schools and FasterSafer.com.

Every student at the Yamaha Champions Riding School will have an array of bikes at their disposal, including the YZF-R1, YZF-R6, the all new FZ-09, and perennial fan favorite FZ1.

Also note the school’s website has changed. For more information on how you can sign up to attend the Yamaha Champions Riding School please go to www.ridelikeachampion.com.

Troy's been riding motorcycles and writing about them since 2006, getting his start at Rider Magazine. From there, he moved to Sport Rider Magazine before finally landing at Motorcycle.com in 2011. A lifelong gearhead who didn't fully immerse himself in motorcycles until his teenage years, Troy's interests have always been in technology, performance, and going fast. Naturally, racing was the perfect avenue to combine all three. Troy has been racing nearly as long as he's been riding and has competed at the AMA national level. He's also won multiple club races throughout the country, culminating in a Utah Sport Bike Association championship in 2011. He has been invited as a guest instructor for the Yamaha Champions Riding School, and when he's not out riding, he's either wrenching on bikes or watching MotoGP.
