Elk River, Minn. – The FXR Learn 2 Ride Clinic at ERX Motor Park in Elk River returns Dec. 26-27, and registration is now open. The popular hands-on snocross school is designed to teach young riders of all abilities and has been a winter cornerstone for ERX Motor Park and FXR Racing with its grassroots appeal of attracting new snowmobile riders and racers.
The clinic is taught by several of the top FXR national snocross racers including Kyle Pallin, Elias Ishoel and Tavin Woodie, and participants are immersed in a hands-on day of training designed to improve riding skills and sharpen the mind. The program has proven to be a gateway for many young snowmobilers to try snocross racing and has done so with incredible success. Several up-and-coming riders competing in the International Series of Champions (ISOC) national snocross series have honed their skills through the FXR Learn 2 Ride Clinic.
“Hands down, the FXR Learn 2 Ride Clinic is one of our favorite and most important events of the year,” FXR Marketing and Special Projects Manager Doug Rust said. “New riders are the future of not just snocross, but the sport.”
The approachability of grassroots racing and events such as the FXR Learn 2 Ride Clinic have been key to the success of ERX Motor Park.
“We’ve hosted many different types of events at ERX,” said Taylor Carlson Schroer, marketing manager for the park. “But grassroots racing and family events are what define us. These kids and their parents represent the next generation for a sport we are incredibly passionate about.”
The two-day format will ensure all participants will receive ample one-on-one training from coaches and plenty of track time. The 120/200 Clinic on Dec. 27, will also include a special classroom clinic for parents, giving them insight on race day procedures, race classes, required safety equipment and snowmobile tuning and preparation. Both clinics will feature an open-track session at the close of the day where riders will have a chance to compile the skills learned and ride with the pros.
