My sons racing story goes something like this. In the two years he spent on an 85 he raced maybe 5-6 times total in the 85 beg class. Never once did he finish even high enough to win a trophy. This spring we decided to run the entire MXGP series. Riding a 125 his results improved quite a bit,he won some trophies, but wasn't a threat to win any moto's.
After the spring series is when we hooked him up with Eric. I could see an immediate difference when he started working with him, but last weekend is proof positive. In the 125 beg / 250 beg classes he won 6 of his 8 motos.
Beyond the excellent class instruction what I really appreciate is how Eric continues to invest his own time beyond the formal classes. Anytime we happen to be at the track at the same time Eric makes it a point to offer some quick pointers, instruction or even give a 10-15 min lesson.
who is your kid, cuz i was in those 2 class's as well.. but today #18 was really railin he checked away from me in the 250 class he's good, but im derek #686
Yeah #18 is him, Drew Hopkins.
He spent all day friday working with Eric then won all 8 motos over the weekend.
yea i was back there in the 250 class but i'll be taking ew's class the 27th if i get that sat. off of work then maybe i can run w/ him lol yea he's fast
