Beginning motocross riders often seek a skilled mentor to help them become established and competitive in the sport. Often a match with a mentor is made by taking a class offered by a local racer with a solid motocross racing background.
Costs involved depend on the instructor’s success in the sport and the level of demand for his training sessions. Local A-Class riders and celebrated Arenacross racers frequently offer training sessions for a fee. Many have established camps designed to enhance students’ riding ability while others make themselves available for personalized lessons.
Sometimes the best connections in the sport are made with seasoned racers seeking to assist new motocross riders. Asking such racers for their time and instruction in exchange for transporting them to races or paying their entry fees is often a handsome arrangement for both parties. The avid racer is able to cut costs while sharing expertise.
A solid rapport with the person a novice seeks to be his leader is vital to a successful partnership. A mutual trust and respect lead to the student gaining knowledge, confidence and ability. Accomplished leaders understand how to motivate and inspire new motocross riders to set and meet specific riding goals.
