Academy a success

FINER POINTS: Junior motocross enthusiasts, from Corey Watts, Jacob Williams, and Aaryn Watts demonstrate finer safety points on motorcycle riding.

A strong response from young Horsham district motorcycling enthusiasts has prompted organisers of Horsham’s Academy of Motocross to plan for more events next year.
Horsham Motorcycling Club coach Merv Williams said academy sessions over five months at Dooen Recreation Reserve this year had attracted 26 riders.
“It gave some of our junior and senior club members a chance to demonstrate how much can be learned by following the coaching program,” he said.
“Academy riders will have a chance to display to club members and show what they have learned, at our club break-up on November 6. We will also present certificate to all participants.”
Mr Williams, a Motorcycling Australia accredited coach, said the event was so successful Motorcycling Australia was considering adopting the academy concept.
“Other clubs from across Australia have also contacted me to help them set up their own academies,” he said.
“I am very impressed with all of the riders who participated. They all put in 100 percent effort. This has allowed me to teach them some of the more advanced skills on a motorcycle, as well as follow my safety procedures, to make them a better and safer riders, whether it be at a moto track, at home or in the bush.”
