Yamaha has joined forces with the Amateur Motor Cycle Association – AMCA – to offer a brand new off-road riding experience; the Yamaha AMCA MX Experience.
Yamaha’s new partnership with one of the oldest governing bodies in the sport of off-road competition, gives wanna-be off-road riders the perfect opportunity to try the sport of motocross at a range of venues throughout the UK, without the commitment of buying a bike and associated kit.
With over 80 years’ experience in running off-road events from the humble local trial right up to awe-inspiring mass participation beach racing, the AMCA and its team have all the skills and knowledge necessary to provide an environment for those wanting to try their hand at riding an off-road bike in a safe and secure environment, whilst having fun and learning a new skill at the same time.
In addition to having a fleet of Yamaha’s latest off-road machinery at its disposal, including the stunning reverse-cylinder YZ250F motocrosser and the highly acclaimed new fuel-injected WR250F enduro bike, the Yamaha AMCA MX Experience will provide all the necessary riding kit and protection for the day, as well as comprehensive but easy to understand tuition, to ensure that riders get the most from their experience. Use of bikes and fuel for the day is included in the price.
It’s not just there for novice riders either, it will also be actively encouraging riders to build on their new found skills and take their first steps in to the world of competitive sport by offering a unique Race Day Experience package. Available to those that have already completed a Yamaha AMCA MX Experience, riders will have the opportunity to take their riding to the next level and go bar-to-bar on track in their first novice AMCA race.
With riding kit, bike and fuel provided as part of the package, riders will also have an AMCA instructor/mentor for the day that will guide them through the whole experience from sign-on to (maybe) lifting a trophy on the podium at the end of the day!
Yamaha UK’s Off-Road Marketing Coordinator, Karl Radley said: “We are really excited to have the AMCA on board as a partner and to be able to continue to offer Yamaha fans the opportunity to experience our products and the thrill of off-road riding. With the new Yamaha AMCA MX Experience, we are looking to the future and how we can find new ways for riders to experience our products and encourage them in to the sport of off-road.”
The AMCA’s Chairman Don Green added: “We have believed for a number of years that an MX school would be an asset to the AMCA and the partnership with Yamaha has realised this. We are looking forward to the prospect of introducing new people to the world of off road riding and in particular motocross. The Yamaha AMCA MX Experience is the latest initiative for the AMCA, which has always strived to be at the forefront of the sport, from buying and leasing its own exclusive tracks, to acquiring over thirty start gates and P.A. trailers. The AMCA continues to be innovative in working hard to secure the future of the sport.”
