    Canaan June 2-3: A place for everyone (really)!

    We're looking forward to our season opener next weekend at Canaan, and there are great reasons for everyone to attend!

    NESBC on Saturday: NESBC is for all riders. Of course there are the purse paying Motard and Formula Ultralight (think Moto America Junior Cup) races that produce great competition and attract top riders. We've also got our Intermediate classes for Nov/Am racers who want to get out and have a good time and race for some trophies (and some awesome year end championship prizes). The main focus is on the Street Bike classes, which are just for pure fun (although there are year and prizes as well). Come find out why everyone comes out to the wall on Saturday afternoons, cheer for their friends, and always walk away with a big smile. There's a real sense of community here that's hard to describe - come on out and join the fun!

    LRRS Riders: Do you need help with body position? A vast majority of riders can drop times and increase both safety and feel by freeing up traction mid corner. The TOUGH part is having the discipline to slow down enough to practice proper technique. We find that when riders hit the track at Loudon, even when it's not a race day, that it can be hard for them to not constantly be checking lap times. We've had real success in the past by taking riders to other venues (where the "pressure" to go fast is lower) where they can put in the laps needed to burn proper body position and inputs into their muscle memory. Then, when they head back to Loudon it's much easier to put into practice.

    Track Day Riders: Come out and ride one of the safest and technically challenging layouts in the Northeast. Canaan is all about the corners! There is both increasing and decreasing radius, uphill and downhill, fast and tight, positive and off camber turn. As with all Penguin events, the very few walls are protected with airfence, and the remainder of the facility offers nice runoff everywhere. Plus, you'll have access to our fantastic staff who can help make you a faster & safer rider!

    Under 500cc Group: We should have called it the under 50HP group....but we'll just roll with it. Sunday will feature a special classroom group, focused on getting new riders up to speed and specific strategies for riding small displacement bikes. Got a Z125, Grom, CRF150, Ninja 250 or anything similar? You're in! This is a fantastic place for both small bikes to play and for first time track riders to get out there in a perfect environment.

    That was a pretty special weekend, thanks Penguin! First time on the track for my son, and also for a friend of mine. Perfect weather, perfect track, good to see a few familiar faces. No mishaps, lots of learning and grins all around!
