Yamaha Champions Riding School Announces 2021 Schedule
Willcox, AZ – December 2020 – Yamaha Champions Riding School, the premier riding school in North America, is excited to announce the 2021 schedule featuring events in Florida, Arizona, California, Georgia, North Carolina, Colorado, Washington State, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and New Jersey. The 2021 ChampSchool schedule consists of more than twenty events including Two-Day ChampSchool, One-Day ChampSchool, ChampDay, ChampGrad, and ChampStreet curriculums, most of which will have Yamaha motorcycles on Dunlop Sportmax tires, Alpinestars gear, and Arai helmets available for rent for a true “arrive and ride” experience. Sign up before December 31 and get an early-bird discount!
“Our mission is to grow the sport of motorcycling by teaching Champions Habits with world-class Yamaha motorcycles at world-class facilities,” said ChampSchool CEO Nick Ienatsch. “Yamaha Champions Riding School is growing on all fronts with more schools, more programs, and more students. In 2021 we have expanded into more regions than ever before with six Three-Day events featuring our new ChampDay open-lapping-with-instruction format and ChampStreet program designed specifically for street riders. If riders sign up before December 31, 2020, they automatically get 10% off and can purchase with only a deposit and a payment plan!”
That’s right, we said “Payment Plan”. You all asked and we listened. For the more expensive ChampSchool program, you can now pay only 50% upfront and be billed the second half 30 days out from the event. The less expensive ChampDay and ChampStreet classes are exempt from the payment plans.
The first event of the year is going to be epic! Yamaha Champions Riding School is going to Homestead Miami Speedway for the first time for an amazing four-day moto-vacation extravaganza! ChampSchool has partnered with N2 Track Days for four days of fun in the sun. Thursday and Friday, January 21 – 22 will feature our Two-Day ChampSchool, One-Day ChampSchool, and ChampGrad Programs. N2 Track Days will be holding a track-day event on Saturday and Sunday, January 23 -24. Rental bikes will be available from Bike Pass Motorsports, Track Bike Rentals, and BobbleHeadMoto. Two-Day ChampSchool students will also have the opportunity to get “third-day” private coaching from Kyle Wyman, Roger Hayden, Ben Walters, Chris Peris, and Eziah Davis at the N2 event. Call the boss and take vacation time now. This event will be awesome.
ChampSchool’s traditional winter home is Inde Motorsports Ranch in Willcox, AZ. Inde is a gearhead’s dream with 75,000 square-feet of beautiful facilities, a five-acre skidpad, vintage jets parked everywhere, and an amazing, freshly repaved, 21-turn road course. Yamaha Champions Riding School will hold three events at Inde in February, March, and April. ChampSchool will also hold three more in the latter part of the year in October, November, and December all with Two-Day ChampSchool, One-Day ChampSchool, and ChampGrad programs. Inde is the perfect destination to improve your skills while your friends are shoveling snow. Private “third-day” coaching is available from senior instructors like Kyle Wyman and Chris Peris at most Inde Motorsports Ranch events. Yamaha motorcycles, Alpinestars gear, and Arai helmets are available to rent at all Inde events for a true “arrive and ride” experience.
Speaking of Arizona, ChampSchool will also hold two One-Day events at Arizona Motorsports Park in Phoenix. These events will feature our ChampStreet program tailored specifically for street riders on-street bike with street gear, plus our ChampDay program for track-day riders. ChampDay is an open-lapping format like a track day, but with a mix of classroom and on-track coaching.
ChampSchool loves California and California loves ChampSchool because every California event in 2020 was sold out! YCRS is returning to California with a Three-Day March event at Buttonwilllow Raceway Park and a Three-Day event in April at the famous Streets of Willow. On October 18 – 20 ChampSchool will hold a three-day event at the new track at ButtonWillow Raceway Park. Events are going to fill up fast as riders have been on the California ChampSchool waiting list for over a year. These events will feature our ChampDay/ChampStreet programs on day one and our Two-Day ChampSchool, One-Day ChampSchool, and ChampGrad on days two and three. There will be a limited selection of Yamaha motorcycles for ChampSchool or ChampGrad students to rent.
Yamaha Champions Riding School is coming to the South East big! ChampSchool will have three events in the South this year starting at the world-famous Road Atlanta for a Two-Day event on April 12 – 13. The ChampSchool circus will travel to Garysburg, NC to The North Carolina Center for Automotive Research (NCBike) on May 3 – 4. We return to the Carolinas again in on September 30 – Oct 1 for our first-ever event at the freshly repaved Carolina Motorsports Park in Kershaw, South Carolina.
ChampSchool returns to Colorado for a three-day event on Memorial Day weekend at High Plains Raceway Saturday, May 29 – Monday, May 31! This event will feature our One-Day ChampStreet/ChampDay programs and our full Two-Day ChampSchool. This event will sell out and will have limited rental availability.
ChampSchool is back with a full program at “The Ridge” in June! The Ridge is the premier road course facility in the Northwest and ChampSchool is excited about returning for our fourth straight year. Track Time is partnering with YCRS at this event and they have put more coaches through our Certified Champions Coaching (3C) program than any other track day organization.
The North East will have four events in 2021. Pittsburgh International Raceway is one of the most beautiful facilities in the country and YCRS is proud to host a three-day event on August 9 – 11 on this amazing course. New Jersey Motorsports Park is the traditional summer home for Yamaha Champions Riding School and this world-class facility will host three events on May 17 – 19, June 21 – 23, and September 7 – 8. With more than 45 million people within a couple hour’s drive of the famous south Jersey track, NJMP is an extremely popular facility. The two spring NJMP events will feature a three-day program with our ChampStreet/ChampDay program on day one and the Two-Day ChampSchool program on day two and three. The September event will feature the Two-Day ChampSchool program on the Lightning track where MotoAmerica riders should be allowed to ride just before the following weekend’s race. May and June will be on the Thunderbolt track.
The 2021 Yamaha Champions Riding School schedule will continue to expand with more specialty events for military, manufacturers, and distributors as well as additional retail schools. Check back often with www.champschool.com for the latest info and get on our e-mail.
