CHILDREN will get the chance to attend the last Junior Development Day at the State Motorcycle Sports Complex at Broadford this Saturday, October 29.
Kids, between the ages of 7 and 16 years of age, will be taught the necessary motorcycling skills, such as cornering and braking, in a safe and controlled environment at the road race circuit.
Broadford’s Administration Manager Ann-marie Upton said kids really enjoy the structure of the day which was split between learning out on the track as well as in the classroom. “We have a great structure now where our days are just not all about riding. There’s theory involved as well,” Ann-marie said.
The day involves on-track learning in the morning, followed by lunch, then a theory session in the specially-dedicated Junior Development Day Room, which was followed by more on-track learning in the afternoon.
JDDs cost just $85.00 per rider. “We pride ourselves on the family-friendly atmosphere the days generate and the help that the juniors give each other. Parents are also encouraged to provide advice when they can too,” she added.
Ann-marie encourages youngsters everywhere who want to learn how to ride a motorcycle the right way to give JDDs a go.
“JDDs are not always about those wanting to go racing. Some juniors come along because they want to develop skills that will make them more aware of the road when they are eventually a fully-licensed motorcycle rider,” Ann-marie said.
