FVOR Training Camp Sat July 5th

Just a heads up in case anyone missed it. FVOR is hosting a training camp this Saturday. Classes for MX/SX, Off Road/Endurocross and beginner/kids. Cost is $50 for ages 14 on up.

I just put my name in for the off road class.

It will fill up fast.

The off road is being taught by Ryan Moss and Travis Ward. Both fast as shit AA racers.

Mx by Burton Lavender and Tommy Hofmaster.


I was thinking about going, but I've worked hard to make my bad habits, and I don't want that fucked up now.

DAMN!
I've been waiting for this to come around since I heard about it late last year. I'm out of town all weekend though (RED BUD!!!). I wish they would do these 2-3 times during the year. I'd bet there is enough interest.

Class on Saturday and HS on Sunday would be awesome. Would only need to make the drive once.

Make life challenging. Be the underdog!

Class is highly recommended. For an additional $25 on top of what you'd normally pay to ride there, you can't beat it. Not only do you get the training, but it also included some one on one time with Garry from Borelli Cycle(got my sag checked and adjusted). Oh and a free hot lunch too.

Classes were pretty big. I think the woods class had somewhere around 25 give or take. With so many riders I didn't expect to get very much one on one time with the instructors but I was wrong. Ryan pulled me aside several times throughout the day to give me some pretty helpful pointers, which I really appreciated.

The morning consisted of working mostly on hills while focusing on body position and line selection. In the afternoon we worked on technique getting over the big logs up by the office followed by some time down by the creek. I believe they were heading over to the EX section after that but I didn't stick around. Still wanted to get my sag checked by Borelli and then needed to hit the road for home.

All in all I really enjoyed it and will most definitely do it again in the future.

Sounds like it was a good class. Hopefully, they have it again.

got there about noon Saturday, planned on Joliet but plans change, best part of the classes was that they prepped the track and watered it throughout the day which they never do if its an off weekend, I didn't take the class but rode w them after lunch break
