I had the best experience at Autoclub Speedway (June 25, 2016). I had 1-1 training with the one-and-only Eric Bostrom. I learned a lot of stuff. Mainly riding position and letting go of fear. I kept going faster and faster.
Interesting to note that he also made pointers regarding the way the SportClassic likes to be ridden.
He called it the “tractor” effect. I refer to it as Mario Kart. (lol) shoot style of naviagting through turns.
The bike was performing flawless.
I also was fortunate enough to have former racer John Hilton there. His approach was different but nonetheless, valuable. I had a 2-for-1 that day!
Bostrom said that the SportClassic is a neutral bike, so enter the turn fast, lean it over, maintain speed to keep tires planted deep, and accellerate as you go through. Seems kinda contradictory but it worked!
Best of all, I had my dad and great freinds there to support me!
