Ricky Carmichael School Update
The following is a press release from MX Sports:Ricky Carmichael University Releases CurriculumRicky Carmichael University, otherwise known as “RCU” is pleased to announce the school format and curriculum. RCU, which is the first school of its kind, is being held at Daytona International Speedway on Monday, March 8, 2010.After an early morning check in, the school starts out with a breakfast, where all the participants will meet Ricky and his crew of decorated instructors. Riders will then suit up and go through an individual riding analysis, with each student assigned to an instructor. Following that, students will first work on proper body positioning, while utilizing the organized drills that RC himself used to help hone his skills. Drills will focus on flat turns, rhythm sections and improved braking techniques.”I have spent quite a bit of time trying to put together the most important pieces of what I have learned through all my years of racing,” said Carmichael. “This program is really cool, and I can’t wait to personally run and discuss the braking and cornering drills, which I think is one of the easiest places on the track to make up time. I will be suited and riding, and won’t hesitate to run some of them myself.”Participants can expect to work with the close knit members of Ricky’s team, which has become known as “Camp Carmichael” over the years. The final line up of all-star instructors will be announced in the coming weeks, but participants can expect additional coaches with credentials validated by national championships.RCU is an exclusive and unprecedented opportunity for Motocross riders young and old to get personalized one-on-one training with the greatest rider of all time — Ricky Carmichael and his team. The event is being held in conjunction with Daytona International Speedway and on the same course that the pros will ride during the legendary Daytona Supercross By Honda. Due to the exclusive nature of this event, participation is limited to the first 100 riders that register. For more information on RCU, please visit www.mxsports.com.
