The Cornerspin track may be built in dirt but it is designed to mimic the conditions of a road racing circuit.
The Cornerspin school has 12 fully prepared mini-bikes (DRZ125, TTR125 and CRF100’s) which are provided with instruction. Like the mini-bike training done by riders back to the day of Kenny Roberts Sr. to current riders such as the Hayden brothers, Cornerspin is “cross training for road racers and road riders” using flat track and motard techniques on a variety of tracks to improve bike control and rider skill. The facility is set up to simulate many road and track conditions with over 10 configurations that include elevation changes, camber changes, fast transitions, esses, hairpins, sweepers and more.
Aaron Stevenson, CEO and Chief Instructor of Cornerspeed and Cornerspin, is the instructor for lectures as well as on bike demonstration. A rotating roster of instructors includes former National #20 AMA Pro dirt tracker and road racer Michael Dillon, and multi-discipline expert racers: Steven “XXX” Broadstreet, Chris “Hollywood” Cooke, Jean Robitaille, Brent Mercer, and Pete Moravek. These instructors with their extensive riding background from numerous disciplines combined with their racing experience add key ingredients to further students understanding of bike control and racing. The small class size allows for ample one on one instruction and feedback during the two-day school.
