Freddie Spencer - Jan 11-12 (Unofficial NESBA Event)

Hi folks,

I just wanted to offer an awesome training opportunity to you all. Tom & Carol Larson, Marshall Skloss, Paul Murphy, Ron Hix and myself all went to Freddie Spencer High Performance Riding Pro School http://www.fastfreddie.com last winter together and had an absolute blast. We are returning this year as well and wanted to see if anyone from the Midwest NESBA group would be interested in going.

2-Day Pro School
Dates are January 11-12 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Lodging is at the Orleans
Price is currently at $2065.50, which is a 10% group discount from the normal $2295.

This course teaches all sorts of riding drills, braking drills, body position, line analysis, throttle control, blipping, etc... No matter your level, they have tons to offer. For example, last time we were there, Matt Lynn, Rob Jensen, Larry Denning and others were there with us taking the same class. Jason DiSalvo was running drills with us as well. Nicky Hayden had just been there the week before working on braking drills.

Anyhow, it would be great to see any of you who might be interested in coming, join us for some fun training during the off season. We learned so much there last year, that we constantly had things to work on all season, as well as it helped us coach Midwest NESBA members with added knowledge and confidence.

This is NOT an official NESBA Event, just something that we put together in the hopes that we could get more of our riders the experience and training that Freddie's team offers.

As of now, I have 19 riders going (8 Midwest CRs, 1 MidAtlantic CR, 5 Midwest A riders and 3 I riders). We needed 12 to have this as a NESBA only event and we have that covered. The school can handle up to 20 riders, the ratio is typically one instructor per 4-5 riders. The Pro School usually gets plenty of time with Freddie Spencer himself.

This course would be recommended for CRs and Advanced level riders. Clearly, since the course is so personalized, we can have a variety of riders in the group, and be able to group off within our own speed level groups. We have I and B riders going, if we can get a couple of more I and B riders, it would be great for group balance.

I realize that this is not a cheap trip, but it is well worth the money. Hopefully, you have heard about the school, or someone who has been to the school will post up and tell you more about it.

So, anyone interested?

If so, post up, and drop me an email at brianwink at mac dot com. These are unlisted school dates, as we are in control of the attendee list.

They provide the bikes, no? Just bring your gear and your willingness to improve?

They provide Honda 600RRs, with new Michelin tires.

You can bring your own leathers or rent. I take my own leathers, boots, gloves, and helmet. They set the bike up for your weight and Stree/GP.

It is an excellent book. It is actually based on some of the things that Freddie, Jeff and Nick teach in the class.

You fill out a questionnaire beforehand, stuff like height, weight, etc. They match up bikes with bodies and make adjustments as necessary (to the bikes, not the bodies!). You're assigned a bike to ride for the duration. They did a good job lowering mine, though it was still a bit tall. Wasn't a problem since I had my Nesba entourage there to give me a hand!

It has nothing to do with NESBA other than a bunch of the NESBA people are going. Wink just set it up for a group of people he knows can all go together. I am sure you could get in as long as he has open spots.

Brent is correct. This is just a private Freddie event that I organized. And we already have 13 people going, so the event is definitely happening.

We'd love to have ya join us.

I am moving from 50/50 to probable.. That week is a very busy one in LV. It can be hard to get rooms.

If this comes together, I might go out and hang for a while. The big money at CES attracts lots of strange cats to the dark side of LV
And as a extra freaky bonus AVN is going on sat 13th. The parties, shallowness, and stupidity are unparalleled. And it's darn funny too.

Sweet!

I'd agree on getting rooms set up. I was out there during the CES/AVN weekend a few years back and paid some stupid money to stay at the Bellagio. Wifey's idea.

I can't find any info on their page about security deposits of anything. Do you know how any possible damage to the bike is handled? Deposits? Insurance? Drawn and quartered?
