If you’re at a loose end this bank holiday weekend, or you’re desperately in need of some tuition then get yourself to the official KTM Race Camp on May 5 & 6 and May 11 & 12, held at FatCat Motoparc in Doncaster, Yorkshire.
The off-road school is open to riders from age six and aimed at every motocrosser – from the occasional rider to the hardened professional – with tuition spearheaded by former Grand Prix and Motocross of Nations winner, Paul Malin.
Costing just £165, including lunch and refreshments, each KTM Race Camp day is limited to just ten places to ensure riders get the full attention of the instructors. No equipment is provided and the days are open to riders of all makes of MX machinery.
Whether it’s preparing for competition or just beating a mate on practice days, each course is structured to assess a rider and break down their riding into the individual techniques needed in MX. Through practical coaching and classroom sessions, every rider will come away with either new skills or existing ones sharpened.
Paul Malin, chief instructor for the UK KTM Race Camp, said: “Inexperienced riders can obviously learn a lot at the KTM Race Camp, but often we find experienced and returning riders hanging on to a lot of bad habits that we can iron out. Having someone analyse and criticise your riding might not sound great, but our instructors will always pick up things that can help make you a better rider.”
With three all-weather sand circuits of differing difficulty and excellent facilities, FatCat is regarded as one of the country’s premier motocross venues.
