February 21, 2014 – AMA national winner Chris Peris is the newest member of the YCRS instructor staff. The Canadian is signing on in preparation for the school’s opening class on April 21, 2014 at New Jersey Motorsports Park.

“We met Chris at the Spencer school years ago and he’s always been on our radar for instructing,” YCRS’s Nick Ienatsch said. “He has guest-instructed for us many times and does a terrific job.”

Peris joins instructors Ienatsch, Ken Hill, Dale Keiffer, Shane Turpin, Mark Schellinger, Garrett Willis, George Grass and Phil Horwitz in an effort to maximize every student’s YCRS experience. “I see how much difference good coaching can make in a rider’s life,” Peris says, drawing on his own teaching experience, “and the way YCRS approaches this sport is life-changing for the students. I want to be a part of that.”
