We plan on attending at some point this year too, hopefully we’ll see you there!

Begin Press Release:


Prather, California – January 22, 2018 –

Do you want to Gain Skills, Gain Confidence and Gain Control on your Motorcycle?

Rich Oliver’s Mystery School announces their initial 2018 dates to help you and your friends do just that.

The most popular course is the Two-Day Fun Camp and is designed for everyone interested in improving their overall motorcycle control. Students need to be able to ride a motorcycle; however, they do not have to have any dirt experience. Rich uses a step by step process to teach how to slide the Yamaha TT-R into the corners with skill and confidence. Students experience two fun-filled days of flat track riding drills, practice riding, and racing topped off with a final main event race! This class is very effective for all levels of street, dirt and track day riders.

For the serious racer and track day rider who want to improve their lap times, we offer the Four-Day Pro Camp. The Pro Camp is a multi-faceted training that shows participants what is required to be a successful racer. Not only are there many hours of seat time learning on the bike but students also learn key mental strategy and toughness to be the best that they can be. All of the items covered can be used in your racing and in your everyday life. This course is key for off-season training.

The newest addition, the Kid’s Ride and Wrench Camp, is a course that blends learning how to ride a motorcycle with an introduction to the metric system and working with the tools used to repair and maintain a motorcycle. This two-day course covers how to ride, how to wash and load a motorcycle into the bed of a truck, and how to assemble a motorcycle from the frame up.

Additional courses offered include Private Training Days with Rich, Learn To Ride Off-Road Course, the Off-Road Challenge Course and the POST Motorcycle Update Course. Rich Oliver’s Mystery School will open in late February and extend through July. Fall dates will begin in September and run through mid-December.
