@ RIDGE MOTORSPORTS PARK

 

Shelton, WA – 2Fast Track Days is thrilled to announce a novel series of rider training schools, the Ken Hill Motorcycle Fundamentals Masterclass, catering to riders of all levels who want to take their skills to new heights—and their lap times to new lows!

Join us for this cutting-edge rider development program at one of the most exciting and challenging tracks on the MotoAmerica circuit Ridge Motorsports Park, in Shelton, Washington. Take your pick of three schools scheduled for the 2024 season: May 24-25, June 24-25, and July 16-17.

The Masterclass curriculum follows Ken Hill’s Order of the Sport, which teaches the six fundamentals of motorcycle riding and best practice techniques used by the world’s top riders. The modular, step-by-step methodology is designed to help you become a faster, safer, and more confident rider, whether you just got your first bike or are an experienced racer.

Are you frustrated with one-size-fits-all coaching and getting advice on what to do, but not how to do it? The Masterclass prioritizes individualized support and instruction based on your skill level, riding goals, and learning style. Ken’s approach embraces holistic rider development and includes training both on and off the bike, combining theoretical instruction of key concepts and techniques with on-track drills to develop mental, physical, and technical mastery.

The Motorcycle Fundamentals Masterclass is divided into classroom and on-track sessions—including more riding time than a standard track day! In the classroom, Ken Hill will lead you through a comprehensive introduction to the six fundamentals of the sport: (1) Bike Placement, (2) Vision and Focus, (3) Motor Controls, (4) Brake Adjustability, (5) Turn-In Point and Turn-In Rate, and (6) Body Position and Body Timing. You’ll receive a new training handbook authored by Ken, available exclusively to Masterclass students.

Additional sessions will also focus on electronics and data, including instruction on how to collect and review video and GPS speed data to support your riding goals.

These classes will be followed by extended 45-minute sessions on the track to help you implement what you’ve learned, involving practice drills and coaching from our expert instructors. With only 15-20 riders per group, you’ll receive personalized support to achieve your riding goals. Registration is limited, so sign up early!
