Lewis Lloyd

Rev Racing is pleased to announce that it will be hosting an ultra special Honda Xtreme Academy training event at Thoresway Motoparc, Caistor on the 18th August 2011 with guest trainers Evgeny Bobryshev, Rui Goncalves, Shaun Simpson, Brad Anderson, Anthony Reville and Xtreme Academy trainer, Brian Jorgensen.

This incredible training event is exclusive to Honda youth riders (both national and club level) as part of the Xtreme Academy programme. The Honda Xtreme Academy has now branched out into seven countries across Europe and offers a learning environment for the stars of tomorrow to hone their skills as motocross racers.

The Xtreme Academy championships run alongside each national youth series for CRF150R Honda machines, and with a substantial prize fund on offer, peer mentoring and support from former GP winner, Jorgensen, it’s a special initiative demonstrating Honda’s commitment to helping youngsters develop as racers. In the UK the Xtreme Academy runs with the ACU BYMX 85cc big wheel series and was won last year by Adam Sterry.

Former Grand Prix winner, Honda rider, British and multi-time Danish Champion Brian Jorgensen has been traveling around Europe helping CRF150R riders as the official Xtreme Academy coordinator and will be demonstrating on a CRF450R machine while tutoring riders throughout the day. The groups will be split and work around sections of the track with each of Honda’s pro racers on all aspects of bike riding, technique, race preparation and general fitness.

The Thoresway Honda Motoparc track is located in Lincolnshire is comparable to the famous Foxhill circuit on natural terrain with a range of obstacles, downhill sections and tabletop jumps. It’s certainly going to be an exciting day for Honda riders with Honda World Motocross factory riders Goncalves with 2010 British Champion Bobryshev, and former champions Simpson and Anderson putting something back in at the grass roots of the sport by helping Honda’s junior riders. It really doesn’t get much better than having six professional riders and three full-time current Grand Prix riders help with your riding!

Rev Racing, the UK’s Honda Xtreme Academy representative, which is present at each of the BYMX rounds, will also be working with riders during the day with its trainers and offering CRF150R big wheel and small wheel tryouts for riders who are not yet on a Honda.
This exciting event is firstly open to entries from Honda CRF150R big wheel and small wheel riders at both club or national level aged up-to 16 years old. Entries will then open up to 16-18 year old CRF250R youth racers on the 25th July. There are limited spaces available on a first come, first serve basis at £35 per rider. Riders will receive a confirmation email once they have registered or to book in please email info@revracing.co.uk with rider name, parent name, telephone number and email address.
