WHOOPIES RACE SCHOOL CURRICULUM
1. Do you want to have fun today or do you want to learn to be safer and faster?
Then you’ll have to slow down and do the drills. We get better by working on our weaknesses. Putting all your practice days and time together for a fast lap when the conditions are right.
Baby steps. Pushing harder only in small increments.
Knowing when to stop pushing. If you drop a lot of lap time in a short period, back off.
2. THE LINE: Same exact line every lap. Looking ahead to next corner.
Using the whole track
Hitting your marks and running a consistent line.
Late Apex Line
Squaring off a corner.
3. BODY POSITION
On the gas
Being mobile and moving around on the bike. Using your weight to stabilize and turn the bike.
Practicing on a really windy day will improve your ability to control the bike with your body position and weight.
4. ROLLING BACK TO W.O.T. WIDE OPEN THROTTLE
From the apex
Standing the bike up for greater contact patch.
Traction Control and playing the spin, steering with the rear.
Squeezing the lever, never slamming on the brakes. Ease off the front brake! So the front does NOT bounce up. Poor Rebound damping can cause front end tucks.
Pushing on the pegs and moving weight back for rear-end stability.
If your braking correctly with the front brake then the rear tire is just ever so lightly touching the ground. So the rear brake does not help in stopping. The rear needs to be turning close to the same speed as you are moving or the bike will go sideways.
Trailing braking, Braking to the apex.
Setting up the pass. Where your strong and he’s weak.
On the brakes in which corners are best. Outside and inside.
On the gas. Outside and inside of corner exit.
Running an extra late apex line to pass on exit.
The draft pass.
On the outside going into a corner. Example corners.
How to predict where the other racer is going to be.
