It’s a common misconception that MOTOGP track riding is simply for those looking to enter their first bike into motocross. This is simply not the case, though. If you have had any previous experience of motocross, whether on a road bike or off, then you will be more than aware of the need to learn how to ride properly. Without this knowledge, you will be at a significant disadvantage to those who have been doing it for years and without MOTOGP courses, you could end up causing yourself massive injuries.
When it comes to motocross, there are two types of classifications: Superbike and Road Bikes. Superbikes are much faster bikes with greater power and faster speeds. They are also heavier and are able to climb inclines at a far greater rate than Road Bikes. The only way to truly experience the full capabilities of these bikes and to challenge yourself is by taking part in MOTOGP track sessions.
So what makes a great motocross video and how can you get your hands on some? Well, MOTOGP courses give you a chance to test your abilities on a real track. This means that you won’t be using any tricks on the screen (although you can do plenty in the video itself), but you will be able to try out everything you could ever wish to. In the event that you don’t think you’re up to mastering the track yourself, many of the courses offered also offer free practice sessions. This is where you can practice everything you’ve learnt from the video and you’ll be racing against others using the same bikes as you.
Of course, it’s not just those with superbikes that can take part in MOTOGP courses. These courses are open to all motorbikes, including those of regular street bikes, pocket bikes and even some motorcycles! You can pick up the basics here and there and progress from there. Some areas have more of a slower, calmer atmosphere and so you might want to take this into account before committing to a session. However, you’ll still be able to enjoy all the benefits of a MOT well above the clouds!
The courses are run over a series of weekends, with sessions ranging from beginner level to advanced. In between, you’ll be able to take part in free practice sessions. All courses offer a friendly, competitive environment for all riders, whether you’re a professional motocross racer or a beginner at motocross.
MOTOGP courses are available in the UK for users in the whole of the country, although you may be restricted by whether or not you live in the north of England, the South West or the East of England. It is worth checking with your local area in order to see if you can take part in a MOT within its area. As well as being able to take part in free practice sessions, you’ll also be able to see how other riders do out on the road. However, be aware that not all courses are suitable for you and your requirements. So it’s a good idea to check around your local area for a list of approved MOT courses and compare the courses to see which ones are suitable for your needs.
