From a YCRS press release:

The Yamaha Champions Riding School will close its winter school schedule with a pair of two-day classes, March 23-24 and 26-27. The added dates are in response to another sold out school in January and a nearly-full school February 16-17, with only two seats remaining. The new classes are limited to only 12 riders, and the second of these March schools is reserved for YCRS graduates only.

“We launched this season’s winter classes with a sold out graduates-only school,” said Keith Culver, Operations Manager. “The feedback was over the top and demand from grads has us closing our season with one too.”

The two-day Elite School on March 23-24 is open to any and all riders with a desire to improve. This fast-paced two days will introduce 12 riders to the amazing Inde Motorsports Ranch facility and the lauded YCRS curriculum.

“We will get all types of riders at this school, from the new rider to the veteran racer,” said Chris Peris, Instructor. “Since we keep the class size small, each student can count on intensive instruction and a curriculum that teaches more in less time.”

Although equally applicable to street riders, the graduates-only school on March 26-27 is based on Casey Stoner’s riding outlook – the focus is on where exactly the bike needs to be going the slowest in each corner. The approach offers a unique understanding that has been popular with riders who have already experienced the YCRS graduate only ‘Masters Program.’

“The Masters Program starts at a different level, but not in terms of speed – in terms of approach,” added Kyle Wyman, Instructor. “We go at this sport from angles that give insight into how the best riders in the world thrive. It’s an amazing two days and will be a perfect end to our sold-out winter schedule.”
