BACK TO SCHOOL

 
Last Friday Chris, Guy and i had a day at Pete Boast's Flat Track training school. Everyone who's ever been has told us how good it is and we were not disappointed. Proper individual tuition from proper blokes. The bikes are 230cc CCMs, quite quick enough for the indoor venue and pretty much bomb proof. Our man was Tris Palmer, British Superstock and Superbike rider " i gave up Motocross at 15 'cos my shoulders kept coming out", one tutor for 3 pupils, i doubt if you would get that kind of attention anywhere else.
 My day started with being told by Steve Plater that i sat on a bike like a "right lazy bastard" and ended with him dragging the same bike off me after going for a gap that didn't exist. Loads of bike time, all on the loose on ever increasing track lengths until being sent out 4 bikes at a time full track.
 A totally brilliant day, my back, legs and head still ache but in a rather satisfying way..
 Get all the info here then do it !
