YAMAHA CHAMPIONS RIDING SCHOOL

Welcome to the Yamaha Champions Riding School. We aim to change your riding life by introducing you to Champions Habits: The techniques, approaches, skills, and the mindsets of the best riders in the world. These Champions Habits are the foundation of safety and consistency to whatever speed you ride, in any venue on any bike. Street riders, this is just as much for you as track riders. The best way to make safe riders is to make good riders.

ChampSchool 1 or 2-day curriculum builds upon two overarching principles called “Champions Habits”: How the best riders in the world ride -and- how a modern motorcycle is designed to be ridden. We shortcut your learning curve, make new riders excellent, make veteran riders even better by limiting class size and focusing on each student’s needs.

ChampDay is our open lap trackday plus brief classroom time between sessions with access to some of the best coaches and instructors in the country. Get introduced to our Champions Habits in an exciting and inexpensive day of great riding with world-class education.

ChampStreet is based on our street rider Sunset Clinic and was used as a baseline for the REST (Riders Essential Skills Training) program for the US Marine Corps. ChampStreet is for ANY type of motorcycle, comes in half and whole day versions, and does not require you to have full track gear (leathers).

Whether you are early in your street riding career or headed for MotoAmerica national racing, ChampSchool is laser-focused on your riding improvement. You can bring your bike or choose a motorcycle from our ready-to-go Yamaha fleet. From the moment you arrive, prepare to be immersed. Breakfast through dinner, your instructors will be part of your every learning moment.

Our coaching staff works under a single rule: Each student gets what they need. Plain and simple. Customer satisfaction and safety tie for our first, second and third priority. We hope you join us to revolutionize your riding. You won’t be disappointed.

Need gear? No problem. We have a large selection of Alpinestars riding gear and Arai helmet rentals available. But most importantly, we’ll provide a notebook-full of Champions Habits and an experience that will serve you for the rest of your riding career.

Why Body Position Matters at the Track

We mimic our heroes’ body position while cornering because it allows us to run less lean angle at the same radius. Less lean angle “points” allows for more brake and throttle points to be used (see YCRS’ 100 Points of Grip video). Add in rain, new tires, non-track tires, cold tires, or worn-out tires—or trying to set your new personal-best lap time—and running less lean angle at the radius you need gains more and more importance....
