Miller to Host Yamaha Champions Riding School
"The Yamaha Champions Riding School combines small classes with top-level instruction to improve the riding of every type of street rider," said journalist, racer, and riding school instructor, Nick Ienatsch. "We'll have kids looking to begin a road racing career and older riders returning to motorcycling after putting the kids through college; our group of instructors will be able to help everyone who walks through the door."
The school is limited to a maximum of 20 students, which will learn riding skills on the 2009 Yamaha R6s, R6Ss, FZ6R and FZ1s. Alpinestars riding gear is available for rent, as well as Arai helmets, for those who come at the school in their street clothes. Instructors like Ken Hill, Dale Kieffer, two-time No.1 plate holder Mark Schellinger and multi-time MRA and USBA class champion Shane Turpin, led by Nick Ienatsch, will share their experience with their students.
"We are thrilled to be teaming up with Yamaha, who have been terrific to work with, and we'll put Nick Ienatsch and his staff of instructors up against any other school in the world,” said Miller Motorsports Park CEO and President Dan Davis.
This partnership is valued by both Miller Motorsports Park and Yamaha representatives. While Miller expands its Performance Training Center portfolio, Yamaha found the best place for its riding school.
“We're very pleased to be partnering in the Yamaha Champions Riding School, which we are confident will be one of the world's top riding schools, and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Miller Motorsports Park," said Yamaha Motorcycle Marketing Manager, David Docktor.
