Sliding Sideways in the Dirt at
RICH OLIVER’s MYSTERY SCHOOL
After street riding for so many years I was honestly excited and intimidated by the idea of taking a motorcycle and sliding sideways through turns in the dirt. That is exactly what Rich attempted to teach me during his two day Fun Camp, and boy was it a good time!!!
Besides being an excellent instructor with a wicked sense of humor, Rich has quite a bit of racing credibility. He is a retired American Motorcyclist Association professional road racer whose credentials include Five National Road Racing Championships and over 71 race victories.
You may ask what a winning road racer is doing teaching a school on flat track dirt racing. We will delve into the correlation between the two and how you too can benefit as a street rider from learning to ride off-road. As well, dirt riders of all kinds can learn new skills along with a boat-load of fun by coming out to play at his Mystery School!
As a consummate student I enjoy studying about the ancient Mystery Schools. I wondered why Rich named his school as he did. You can find the answers to this and more at his Frequently Asked Questions page at: https://www.richoliver.net/pages/faq
In today’s episode Rich talks about:
- His inspiration to get into motorcycles,
- His transition from road racing to teaching dirt flat track riding, and
- How riding on the dirt improves street riding skills which also helped him become a national champion.
