Two-time World Champion motorcycle racer Freddie Spencer brings his expertise to VIRginia International Raceway with Team Pro-Motion’s motorcycle riding schools, August 1-3.

“Spencer’s reputation as a rider is matched by his skills as a teacher, giving riders training in the skills needed to race successfully or ride safely on the streets,” said VIR general manager Josh Lief. “‘Fast Freddie’ sits in the top twenty of AMA riders with a career 24 wins, 15 of them on Superbikes.” Spencer began riding at age four and racing only one year later, moving on to victories at nearly every level and on nearly every kind of race course, from flat tracks to international road race circuits.

“My school is a combination of techniques that I developed and refined over my 29 years of amateur and professional racing,” comments Spencer. “Those techniques and the basic fundamental process works today whether you are riding a Sport touring bike or a pure sport bike.”

Spencer will be conducting a two-day Premier school on South Course Saturday and Sunday, then move to North Course for a Monday Extreme riding school. For more information on Team Pro-Motion and its riding schools, email them at, check their web site at or call them at 215-675-6677.
