June 28th at Canaan - New & Updated!! SIGN UP HERE
Group 1 - Open Track Time: This is a "no frills" open session for all riders (except those new to the track or Youth/Under500cc group riders. No classroom time on this day, just an opportunity for some open track time with long (20 minute minimum) sessions.
Group 2 - Youth / New Rider / Under500cc Development School. This will be a course with a special curriculum, headed by multiple classroom instructors who will be using a combination of track time, 1 on 1 coaching, and skill developing drills designed to build confidence in both new and Youth riders.
- Who is it for?
- Younger riders (10+) If you have a kid who has wanted to try riding the track but is not comfortable/ready riding with all the big bikes in an open group, then this is your place! Our aim is to give these kids an opportunity to ride, and to try the track in the lowest pressure, most relaxed environment possible. IMPORTANT: Parents of riders under 18 please email firstname.lastname@example.org a resume of any potential participants outlining their motorcycle experience. Riders under the age of 14 need to be individually approved before participation. All riders should already have confidence in the operation of a motorcycle. You will also need to either have both parents present or fill out forms that must be notarized prior to the event.
- Newer Track Riders on Small Displacement machines - if you have an under 500cc motorcycle and want to develop the skills and confidence for either the street or the track, this is a perfect place for you. Canaan has everything a rider needs to develop skills, without the long straights that cause newer riders anxiety.
Dealer Days - all Canaan dates
We have a number of dealers planning to bring groups of riders to these days. If you would like to put together a group of riders from your shop, or if you are a riding club member who wants to organize a day at the track, please feel free to email us at email@example.com or call us any time!

The winner gets to keep a perpetual trophy in their showroom until the next year. Racers are run completely separate from non-racers in a series of classes to determine the champion. All track day riders may participate, regardless if they are on a team of not.
