Team Pro-Motion will be there May 7th and 8th. I'm not absolutely sure that I'll be at that one but will almost assuredly be at some of the Canadian dates, just coaching.Frog said:dad, which date are you going to Mt Tremblant ?
I'm thinking about organising a ride this summer and Mt Tremblant is the perfect destination
How many riders would be needed in a group? I'd love to try out the track in that kind of circumstance, at reasonable speeds. So to clarify that I do understand, my group would show up during your lunch break and you'd take us around a couple times for free???dad said:Also, if you DO organize a ride, get in touch with me. I can probably orchestrate a thing they call "Try the Track" which can give your group a few free parade laps, following a coach, at the lunch break. They usually take you around ten laps or so. Not full bore and all single file, but not all that slow either, depending on how the group seems to handle it. How cool is THAT!? 8) ;D It'll be fun.
Yup. 8) That's about it. There's no hard and fast rule about an arrival time or anything but it would be good to show up by maybe 10:00 or so, giving ample time for the track workers to know what they've got. They'll have to get somebody to look over your equipment, especially riding gear, and make sure it meets the minimum, talk some stuff over with everybody so they know the program, make sure the cornerworkers aren't on lunch break, things like that. Also you'll need to sign a liability release. But the key answers are YES, it's available, and YES, it's free. 8) ;DRoyson said:How many riders would be needed in a group?

Sure do! I just did three days with him at Pocono. Good guy! Rides a 675, used to have an SV, and now has some KTM motard bike, too. He's a good rider but also a good coach. Now you HAVE to come out. Be sure to say hello and tell Rich you spoke to the Level II coach, Mark. He'll tell you stories. ;DKarmaChameleon said:Do you know Rich Edgar? I think that he is a coach. I think he runs around on a 675.
Who was the gothy looking chick when we were at VIR, she was cute.dad said:Hey, we also have several Canadian coaches, and one is a woman. She's a long time racer in the Canadian women's race series but I think ran with the guys sometimes, too. And two brothers from Quebec who are fluent in French, as you might imagine. Also some Spanish speakers. We got it ALL! ;D
Actually a VERY good bunch who share many backgrounds, with the internationally common ground of their passion for riding.
