    BSB regulars 'Ian Cobby' and 'Francis Williamson', UK Dirt track King 'Pete Boast', 'Brendan Roberts', 'Stuart Stevenson' and 'John Chambers' are the star instructors for 121Ride. From BSB, to Endurance racing these guys have ridden and raced just about every type of motorbike used today. They have amassed a vast knowledge, that can pass on to YOU! In just a day you can learn in what may take you years to learn on your own. Although racers, all of the instructors at 121Ride are accomplished coaches and can help everyone from a novice to racer.





    There are 3 main options:

    1. 121 Training - This is where you will work with your coach over the course of a day or in some cases day. Completely structured around your needs and what you wish to achieve.
    2. Group Training – This time your instructor will work with a group of you (upto 6) and take you through a structured approach to learning techniques and lines. The day will be a mix of classroom and track based instruction. Your group need not be of similar ability ie Novice / Inter / Fast.
    3. Academy - This is fully structured day offering the more experienced rider the chance to move upto the next level. The gold level is aimed at Inter / Fast level riders. Using advanced race and track techniques we will cover items such as weight transfer and trail braking hook turns etc. The Diamond level is aimed at people who are racers or who are contemplating going racing. We will cover bike preparation, mental preparation and will normally use video and in some cases data logging to really analyse your riding.

    We want to ensure you have a memorable time, and we are 100% confident that you will have improved your riding skills and will be more at one with your bike.

    Could have sworn i saw Ian Cobby and Francis Williamson at Snetterton today and not Brands as listed. Fran was asking to borrow/blag Cobbys bike during the final session as his own one was out of fuel and the Ducati boys had put all the spare toys back in the van


    Which instructor was it i ended up nattering with about my mates flat barred FZ1 in the garages ...cant quite put a name to the face but used to race Bemsee/ MRO from what he said
