Asphalt-Only FAQ

Asphalt-Only Trackday

What is Supermoto?

Supermoto combines dirt/motocross riding and road racing into one discipline. Tracks are typically 80% asphalt, 20% dirt. The bikes are based on larger 4 stroke dirt bikes and feature sticky 17" wheels and rubber, and larger brakes. If you feel comfortable on any motorcycle, you'll get the hang of supermoto pretty quick.

What is Asphalt-Only Supermoto?

Our fundamentals program is designed for riders who have no interest in riding dirt, but want to learn the critical road-racing skills necessary to properly control their sportbike. Supermoto bikes are perfect for this due to their lighter weight, tighter turns, and lower speeds.

What is the difference between Asphalt-Only Supermoto and regular Supermoto School?

Our supermoto school teaches the basics of proper supermoto technique - the fastest way to get around a supermoto track. The skills you learn (traction control!) will translate to whatever you usually ride and includes both asphalt and dirt instruction. Our Asphalt-Only Supermoto class uses the lightweight and responsive supermoto bikes to spcifically teach the sportbike riding techniques, which directly translate to riding canyons or sportbike trackdays. Veteran road-race instructor Stuart Smith provides instruction based on years of experience teaching at race schools and road race trackdays. Our Sportbike Fundamental days are asphalt only.

What if I crash/damage the bike?

We have a two-strike policy on crashing on asphalt. If you go down twice you're done for the day (dirt don't count). If you follow our instruction ideally you won't be crashing at all! Our damage policy is a "gentleman's agreement", meaning you break it, you pay for the part. We don't worry about minor scratches and tip-overs. Generally speaking, damage, if there is any, is very minor. I'll let you know the cost of the part, and we'll run your card right there at the track and you're back riding.

What if I need to cancel?

We give a full refund with 48 hours notice. No refunds will be given with less than 48 hours notice.

What type of payments do you accept?

Cash at the track, Visa, or Mastercard.
