Yamaha Champions Riding School (YCRS) located at New Jersey Motorsports Park (NJMP) plans to elevate world-class professional-level motorcycle rider training in the United States. NJMP’s two amazing road circuits sprawl across 500 acres and present the ideal stage for the first-ever fully immersive US school for riders of every variety: from street to track, newbies to veterans, cruisers to adventure riders.
Training is presented through both personalized on-track coaching and classroom instruction structured by the time-tested and incredibly successful program first established by the Freddie Spencer High Performance Riding School and continued by the Yamaha Champions Riding School (YCRS), formally based at Miller Motorsports Park. The instructors you will ride with at NJMP were all involved in the two schools mentioned above: that’s top-level instruction since 1997.
Safety First, Customer Service a Close Second
YCRS teaches competition-proven techniques of motorcycle control to any pavement-bound rider with the ultimate goal of promoting safer riding in any condition. Safety is the first and everlasting priority with customer service a close second.
To ensure this the curriculum structure, training techniques, and low student-to-instructor ratios are of the utmost importance. Instructors of the highest caliber are selected by lead-instructors and co-owners, Nick Ienatsch and Ken Hill, whom together represent over 30 years of experience in professional racing and world-class motorcycle rider instruction.
YCRS maintains a series of guest and celebrity instructors sourced from the highest levels of the sport, such as Scott Russell and Larry Pegram, to teach in the standard two- and three-day courses, as well as unique specialty courses designed to cater to advanced and expert students.
Yamaha Champions Riding School is financially sponsored and majority owned by Joshua Siegel, with minority ownership retained by YCRS’s executive leadership: Nick Ienatsch, Ken Hill, Larry Pegram and Keith Culver.
YCRS’s mission is to bring our unique philosophy to riders around the globe: World-class riding techniques apply to every rider looking to increase the joy and safety of motorcycling.
