Open only to graduates of a previous Yamaha Champions School or graduates of the Freddie Spencer High Performance Riding School*, the Yamaha Champions Graduate School starts with everyone on the same page—and then takes you places you won’t believe.
The drills combine skills, the pace is faster, the surprises are greater and the camaraderie is stronger. Instruction includes start procedures, race psychology, tire and suspension information, passing, fitness and everything else you need to succeed on a closed course.
Class size remains 20 or less to ensure personal attention from our world-class instructors. We’ll provide lunch, the bikes (a Yamaha R6, R6S or FZ1), and the expertise. You provide the drive and the passion.
*Students must show graduation certificate from FSHPRS.
Three Day Price: $3,395
Regardless of your skill level or experience, each class will identify your
strengths and weaknesses and advance your ability. Your instructor will work
with you – whether in the Two-Day or Three-Day School, to fine-tune your ability and
meet your riding goals. We’ll share the tehcniques that have made champions and
have you riding with the poise of a winner.
"I have to say the curriculum is highly developed, Nick and the guys have a clear answer for every conceivable question. I liked the tempo of the schedule. My five buddies and I had a tremendous experience. Thanks for a great time and we will be coming back!"
"The Yamaha Champions Riding School ranks as one of the best courses I've enrolled in and is definitely worth a return visit."
Sport Rider magazine, January 2010
"I’ve been to a bunch of riding schools. I have to say at the end of the day (two days, actually), I learned the mostest – and wound up going the fastest – at this one."
Cycle World magazine, October 2009
How about the best 600 on the planet, the Yamaha R6? Thought you'd like that. We also have a handful of R6Ss, a more street-oriented version of the R6, and a few FZ1s for those of long inseam that just can't fold themselves on a 600. Add the FZ8 and you will find a terrific choice of bikes.
No, sign up and we'll put you on an R6S, an FZ8 or an FZ1. The S is a slightly-roomier version of the R, and the FZ line is a fantastic sport bike for tall guys.
Yes, you will be allowed to ride as fast as the bike, rider and track allow. We have no speed limits at YCRS, but we do have control limits. Speed is a direct reflection of how you use the controls, and we will stress proper control usage. To us, too much entrance speed isn't really a speed issue, it's a "lack of control" issue.
