Performance Rider Education
Advanced Rider Training presented by Law Tigers
Core to the mission of UtahSBA are our Advanced Rider Training (ART) programs. ART's are non-competitive, track-based classes that teach motorcycle control, proficiency and smoothness by providing lots of hands-on track time and high-quality, individual instruction at the lowest possible price. The UtahSBA is a not-for-profit organization that subsidizes the prices of all of our programs through volunteer efforts from our membership and our racing program.
New for 2013, all UtahSBA ART schools will be held on the big track! And to make it even more fun, they're on Saturday during a race weekend. Take your time waking up and packing up your gear, roll out to Miller and grab some lunch, watch some fast guys, then join class. Class hours are from 1:00 p.m. to sundown, with classroom time and parking lot drills to start off easy, then constant track sessions from 5:00 to sunset.
ART Class Levels
TEAM 1 is for intermediate street riders interested in learning safe street riding skills and improving your comfort level on their bike and on the street.
TEAM 2 will help the street rider who is interested in doing Track days and improving their skills on the race track. This course along with an NRC (New Racer Certification) will enable a person to get their race license and start their racing endeavors.
If you're just starting out on a motorcycle, our partners at Motorcycle Safety Foundation have outstanding entry-level training classes. They teach riding fundamentals every rider should know and practice to ride safely.
