    Thanks for a great day on 7/20

    The weather was perfect, and we had an excellent group of students this Friday. I just want to thank everyone for attending our events. It's a privilege to work with all of our students, and its quite rewarding when we get a bunch of great feedback from riders who made improvements. We are working on even more ways to make things better for next season.

    Please feel free to email me at info@penguinracing.com with feedback, ideas or comments anytime. Thanks again!

    I'm the kid with the ktm-turd.
    Highlight of my day: "nope, I've got nothing bad to say. You look pretty good."

    I WISH I had the funds to do that advanced school more often. It's a boatload of information to absorb.

    I'm bringing a tape recorder the next time I go. I couldn't write fast enough to keep up with what they were throwing at me.

    I have 12 pages of notes and it was RAINING when I did my advanced school. I can't imagine how much I would have if it were dry!

    .....I guess that's one way to keep you coming back - to write all the notes you missed the first time......

    Just wanted to say I had a great time at the track experience. I was on my street bike (triumph thruxton) and it was a blast. The instructors, especially Scott, were great. Tons of useful feedback and instruction. Even though I crashed late in the day, I can't wait to get back. Thanks again!

    Re: Thanks for a great day on 7/20

    It was a great session and thanks Eric for all your teachings!

    I was amazed the progress I've made during and after the course, my race pace on Sat & Sun was consistently 6~7 faster than my PB from last year with my PB now 8+ faster, but probably due to I was tragicially slow to begin with

    In terms of feedback; I truely wish we have more time on the track walks sessions, may be 3 sessions instead of just 2.

    Thank you!

    Aaron, I'm really glad to hear that you made so much headway.....that's our goal. Lots of riders take the advanced course more than once, as there is way more information than we can possibly impart in one day. Maybe we'll see you again before the end of the year.

    I think Ive gone through the advanced course 5 or 6 times now. Even at that its still info over load. I know everyone wants to take in everything Eric says but there is just no way to do it. Best thing to do is pick one or two things to focus on and gather all the info for that. Just pay close attention to the rest so you have something to work on at a later time.

    This was my second time taking the advanced class, and I got even more out of it this time than the first. I intend to take it once every season, there is just that much information available in the class. I'd been struggling this year, and this helped me be back to within a second of my career PB, and to run my entire weekend with consistent progression to get there. Thanks again Eric.
