THE SECRETS OF SPEED
KOPP'S KORNERING SCHOOL
**Salem, OR indoor school - March 22nd, 2014
THE SECRETS OF SPEED school was started with the thought of teaching racers/athletes the Mental side of competition. But after many years of people asking me questions about how or why I am able to be one of the very few ever to be able to adapt to all track situations, such as groove tracks, cushion tracks, TT, shorttrack, 1/2 mile, and mile tracks, I finally decided to give them somewhere they could go to learn just that. Kopp's Kornering School.
I have had the opportunity over the years to teach and coach riding/racing techniques at many schools and classes across the USA. Some schools were my own, while some were other teaching/school organizations. I've been fortunate to work with all types of racers/athletes, from Flattrack, Motocross, Road Racing and just the weekend warrior. My students have ranged in age from 5 years old up to the seasoned veteran, and they all have a couple things in common....... They love bike riding and just want to improve their skills on their bikes and have FUN while doing it!
One thing I have noticed from helping out at other teaching/school organizations, is that I have a different approach to teaching than most schools do. In flattrack racing, the race is usually won or lost in the corners, with Korner speed, that's just how it is. Sure a fast bike helps at times, but I've been involved in and witnessed many National level races that were won with a bike that I knew was slower than a competitors. That feat was usually always done with better Korner speed! Ooh yah, I'm pretty sure in my races that the Mental advantage I had helped out too! So anyways, I pretty much consider myself a "momentum" freak I guess you could say. By this, I mean that I put "momentum" into everything I do, whether driving a car or bike or teaching at my schools. I'll show you just how to get better "momentum" through the corner to build up your Korner speed without having to turn that throttle wide open every time. Because if it was that easy, we'd all be doing that!
There is a reason as to why many of the past and current World Champion and US Champion road racers came from a background of flattrack racing, and why most of them continue to practice it while being a professional road racer. Plus there are many National level motocross riders that ride flattrack for training to help them with Korner speed too. I agree that Korner speed is not everything in motocross riding/racing, but once you get to the top level in your class, most of the riders are close to equal over a jump or obstacle, and the difference in Korner speed can be HUGE!
So if you feel that you are at a spot in your ability where you want to move your performance up to the "next level" with the Korner Speed school, then give me a call or email, and let me show you some options on practice and school locations and packages. I promise you that we can improve your lap times and your Korner speed overnight and give you some great techniques to help you keep improving even after the school! I offer one-on-one coaching all the way up to group lessons, plus I will also travel to your location for lessons and schools. Let's have some FUN!
