Yamaha Champions School: Youth Program

Yamaha Champions Riding School

The Yamaha Champions Riding School, based at Miller Motorsports Park, will offer a supported rider program for any racer under the age of 18.

Nick Ienatsch says: “Kids get a lot of advice… most of it isn’t much good! The Yamaha Champions Riding School’s Youth Racer Program asks for young racers to make a monetary commitment to our program up front, but then offers three years of attendance for free. This program allows a young racer to attend any of our schools that fit his/her schedule.

“They have to bring their own bike and they won’t be treated like a “student,” but more like a guest who can participate in the classroom, run laps and do drills with the gang. Think of it as a refresher course in how to win championships.”

Participants in the YCRS Youth Race Program will have carte blanche to audit any school held during those three years. The racer can attend any school on his or her own bike and participate in the program to any degree they desire, free of charge.
The young racers who have gone through programs taught by Nick Ienatsch and his team comprise a veritable list of Who’s-Who in 125 racing, the Red Bull Challenge and the AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport Championship. We don’t want to brag… but our graduates have won a lot.

Nick Ienatsch says: “There’s a whole bunch of things you can do on a motorcycle, and just a few of those things work as the pace comes up. We take young riders and get them thinking about why a bike does what it does, and how they can better affect that bike. Yes, we teach World-Championship-winning techniques, but we also teach the how, the why… and the lifestyle of success on a motorcycle. The earlier a racer can learn this, the longer and richer his or her career will be.”
