Flat Track School
All Photos by: Alexandra Lee More photos here. This past Sunday a few of us got to experience the www.goflattrack.com Flat Track school which is run by Aaron and Catalin Hesmer of Flat Track Canada. Also on hand that day were riders Doug Lawrence, Braden Valle and a few track helpers who made it a great day.
We started off by just getting used to the bikes and the basic principals of riding Flat Track. After every session we'd go over what we learned and what we should be improving on next time out. Covering things like riding position, throttle control, how to approach corners, braking and where to keep your eyes on the track.
Over the course of the day everyone got a lot more comfortable, speeds increased and it was great to see your own progress. Everyone in our group had a lot of fun and did pretty good regardless of previous riding experience. We wholeheartedly recommend trying it out for yourself.
