Motovid Championship Riders Clinic @ BHF 07-23-10

So Cody and I went to Blackhawk Farms on Friday for a riders clinic. The weather pretty much sucked when we got there but cleared up by 10AM. We managed to get 6 solid sessions in on a mostly dry track. In between each session there was class time where we talked about all aspects of going faster. The classes were interesting and informative and helped quite a bit. In addition, we were broken into groups of no more than 3 with a dedicated instructor for our track time. The instructors would go back and forth between leading and following to show race line and help correct body position. By the end of the day I was lapping in the 1:20s (instructors estimation no timing device) which gets me a bump from novice to intermediate and means I am way faster than Cody.

Here are a couple of pics and a link to my photbucket folder.







Cody's best lap of the day.
