IMPORTANT: For all who have booked any of our programs (Virus related reschedules)

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 :-) :-)

Day 1 3/29/2020 Reschedule due to State lockdown

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.

Day 2 3/22/2020 Reschedule due to Virus

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!

Corona Virus Info

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

In Inner Peace with the Violence

Racers are a different breed, especially the ones you can find on top 10 result lists. Then there is the mid-field, which are about to develop something specific- and there is the back of the field which might, or might not make it to the mid-field one day. This doesn’t go for the MotoGP racers btw, because they have it and it is also why they are in MotoGP.

These racers are highly motivated aggressive machines. They are ego driven- no team player type of athletes, and no prisoners making competitors. But where the hell am I seeing a connection to you the regular street rider or amateur racer?! Well, let’s see.

Crashing in MotoGP happens ones or twice in average per race weekend. Their bodies are covered with scars and titanium plates. Blood, bandages and the smell of some kind of pain easing sport lotion on those bruises is your new aftershave cloud. A Mick Doohan almost lost his leg if the doctors wouldn’t have stitched his other leg over it to support blood circulation. He joined the championship in the same year, but he lost the title. Impressive huh?!

A Jorge Lorenzo crashes and breaks his collarbone again (that bone goes most of the time first). He flies home to Barcelona to get fixed up from the doctor he trusts, and he does. Next morning, Jorge flew back to join the race with literally an open wound and ‘gotta get use to it titanium bolts’. Now you can come with another lame one like ‘well, he’s filled up with pain killing injections’, and I’d give you right on this… but what would go through you mentally, thinking you could crash right back onto it etc?! However, Jorge made a podium spot that race!

I remember I crashed so hard at Bruno Circuit in Czechoslovakia in qualifying ones. One of the highest high-siders I’ve ever had, and landing on my hip bone. This is like dropping out of 2nd floor right on the hip and adding about 100 miles an our to it. It turns it wasn’t broken, but the bruise and pain made me walk like Quasimodo for four weeks. On the way home I called my team for tests at Nuerburgring, where they had to lift me on the bike.

Go and ask Wayne Rainy if he would do all of this again if he could reverse time and his horrific back injury which ended his career. What would he might say?!

Now let’s just put a away the most lame and quite arrogant conclusion, that this is their job and what they are all get well paid for. At this point you can trust me when I’m saying that they would do this even for free, so why and how the hell is ‘being like this’ even possible?! What is it that makes them come back after injuries you’d quit for, and performing on almost the same level where they were at before the crash?!

It’s because they love what they do, and they living their passion and dreams. It’s because they have distinctive goals- they are on a life mission. What’s stronger than fears and to get hurt is ‘passion and love’. That’s the gas of their mental motors, so it should be yours. Be driven by passion and love instead of being controlled by fears. Sound’s easy huh? :-)

Am I saying just go crazy, way over you abilities? NO I don’t. Just keep doing what you’re doing and have at least a fraction of that mentality. Have goals, work on something. That keeps you brain busy in a positive way. Think of how much you enjoy to be in this particular turn right now. Ride with passion in your comfort zone and stop thinking what could possibly happen. Racers don’t think this far. Were they at where you are?… oh yes, but they’ve learned how not to think this far. So you can… inner peace is freedom!
