Begin Press Release:
San Diego, CA – December 15, 2017 – The Yamaha Champions Riding School is pleased to announce former professional racer Elena Myers as a guest instructor for the upcoming classes at Arizona Motorsports Park on January 6-7, 2018.
For those motorcycle fans who don’t know, Elena Myers is the most bad-ass female motorcycle roadracer in American history: period! Elena has two professional victories in the AMA SuperSport class, a feat never before accomplished by any other female racer. Elena won at Infineon in 2010 and then again in 2012 at Daytona International Speedway. Oh yeah, and don’t forget she also finished 5th in the AMA Superbike class in her last year of racing. Forget the gender, Elena is just a badass.
Elena is also a student of the sport, a YCRS graduate who worked with Ken Hill during his YCRS days, and has practiced Champions Habits to their fullest. Elena also has coaching experience working with Jason DiSalvo at his riding academy. Jason’s school was also based on the Freddie Spencer school since he was a student of Freddie and Nick in the ’90s, so we are confident that she will fit right in to the modern version of the curriculum.
“I have long term hopes with this adventure,” said Keith Culver, the COO and “Crew Chief” of YCRS. “I rode with Elena last year at Thunderhill during one of our demo days and I can tell you, she’s still got it. I told her then we would love to have her out to a school and ever since, Nick has been in regular communication discussing the possibility. I seriously hope that she meshes with the crew and becomes addicted to the program like the rest of us are. I know Nick is 110% positive she will and I trust Nick 109%”.
“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the folks at YCRS during the upcoming school at AMP. I learned a lot from these guys in my racing days, and feel the program is incredible for riders of all levels. I look forward to seeing where this goes and hope to help as many people as I can along the way,” added Elena.
The Arizona Motorsports Park classes will run on January 6-7, 2018. Saturday and Sunday will be the famed ChampSchool that includes the 4:1 instructor ratio, van rides, video review, the option to rent bikes and gear, lunch and dinner catered, and all the fixins. Each day we will carve out 20 minutes of track time and 20 minutes of class time for ChampDay for those who cannot swing the full monte and want a shorter, more economical option.
