We are facing a state wide lockdown and all track venues are closed due to the virus. We appologieze for any inconvinience this may have for each one of you. I contact you to let you know that you don’t have to be worried for your spot- nor the money you’ve spent. Here is how we do this:
Background- like any other track renter, we won’t get replacement dates to easily create a ‘new’ date for a canceled class.
Solution- since we have plenty of existing dates scheduled- we’ll be pushing each class/spot down the calendar until they are completed, even if that would go into the next year.
Depending on current situations- we will inform an affected class roster and offer reschedulable dates. So we need you to respond ASAP to our emails in case it comes down to your class.
OF COURSE- There will be NO extra/new/additional charges. All it takes from you is patience with us and to provide your wish-date so we can move you to it manually (first come- first served as they fill up).
If you can’t commit- you will always have that credit with us to spend when time is right. Also here- you need to tell us.
Personally- we’ve already done this with two March classes and it worked just fine. We’re all in this together. I hope you see the damage it already did to us, but refunds would even kill us. So please help us to keep doing what we’re doing… hell of unique programs which really work.
Stay healthy and make sure that ya’ll have enough toilet paper :-) :-)
Dear students of the 3/29/ day 1 class.
This is the second painful reschedule I’ve had to announce. Not just because I know there are more to come- also because I believe that we’re all OK actually.
Now that we’re facing a state lockdown and we gotta deal with it. Let’s get you guys rescheduled, but PLEASE understand that we can’t refund since the time window for this has been closed, so please don’t even ask for it as we keep rescheduling if necessary.
So, here are all day 1 dates we can swap you to. First come, first served (means we probably can’t move anyone to a wish-date ones it’s filled and so keep searching. Flexibility is key):
https://www.superbike-coach.com/events/categories/cornering-school-day-1 (please pick soon!) Please be aware that also your new date can change again since I don’t have a crystal ball. Please keep the faith and patience with us, and we’ll get it all done.
MOST IMPORTANT is, that you respond to the email I’ve send (with or without date wish) NOW so that I know you are on my page.
We’re literally moving everyone down the calendar. Non of you will have a loss. I hope this is all making sense.
Dear students of the 3/22/ day 2 class.
This is one of the most painful reschedules I’ve ever had to announce. Not just because I know there are more to come- also because I believe that we’re all OK actually.
Now that we’re facing sheltered counties- we can’t even get to each other. Let’s get you guys rescheduled, but PLEASE understand that we can’t refund so please don’t even ask as we keep rescheduling as necessary.
So, here are all day 2 dates we can swap you to. First come, first served (means we probably can’t move anyone to a wish-date and keep searching. Flexibility is key):
https://www.superbike-coach.com/events/categories/cornering-school-day-2-2 (please pick soon!)
MOST IMPORTANT is, that you respond to the email I’ve send to everyone (with or without date wish) NOW so that I know you are on my page.
On a personal note…
I have a hard time to say that we’ll all get through this as I’m fighting with all the non-sense which comes along with it. But ones we are… I am your coach. Be safe out there.
Love you guys!
Virus info in case you’re looking into our classes:
All of our classes are going, unless we call it off for a reschedule because of rain or we all turned to Zombies. Your risk to catch the shit while you are on the hunt for toilet paper or in a Costco line is way bigger. If you have virus symptoms… please stay home and get better. Other than that…
We’re outside, riding bikes on our track, and we’re young
We could save your Mothersday by rescheduling the cornering school day 2 from 5/10/2020 to 5/9/2020 :-)
For all day 1 graduates I would highly suggest to go grab a spot there NOW, because the waiting list for the booked out day 2 class on 3/22/ is huge. All those student will go for a 5/9/ spot soon, so you better have one now! Go get it here.
Thanks to the Little 99 Raceway for helping with this!

Imagine you’re crashing or your engine just died under a thick cloud of smoke. Horrible idea right? But stuff like that happens.
How I see it is that this is a just an opportunity for mods, upgrades and rebuild. The aftermarket give us everything we need to keep the ball financially low, because depending on the brand you’ve been riding- that can be a money pit real quick. My argument… but even it’s not cheaper, I’d try to make the bike better as it was before. Make it more ride-able, make it looks better, or my favorite… to get more performance out of it.
Wiseco is a well known name for performance products around this planet, and we can proudly say that they sponsor the Superbike-Coach Corp. So we recently had to rebuild two of our school bikes and they provided us with the highest quality of race piston kits, titanium valves and gasket kits you possibly can get. Lucky YOU, if you can rebuild engines yourself, because that will save you thousands of Dollars which you can put into upgrades instead. If you can’t do that… learn it, because it ain’t that hard actually.
I was hoping to have one of the rebuilds captured on video, ready to show you the process for this article. Unfortunately we couldn’t get it done on time so I’ll deliver later. However, all the information is out there to do a decent job yourself. All it takes is patience, will and guts to get to it.
However, my Supermoto race bike, which I mostly use in our Cornering School and Supermoto 1on1 programs, is a beast now. Thanks to Wiseco we could install a top tier piston kit with the highest material quality out there. The compression ratio ramped up to 13:1 now and gives the extra punch out of corners. Extremely light titanium vales for less moving masses in that engine give me that extra rpm band at the end of the straight.
Ones you went with cheap no-name gaskets, you know that this isn’t the place to save money on… you go with trustworthy quality for the extra dollar, and that’s Wiseco for us as well. Their clutch plates rounding our needs up.
Wiseco has pretty much everything for any application, so for yours. Go check them out.
