Eight of Australia‰Ûªs best young riders will head to the Gold Coast this weekend for the second instalment of Motorcycling Australia‰Ûªs Elite Performance Academy (EPA).
The three-day camp, which will focus heavily on on-bike skill assessment and development, will take place from September 5-7.
Four on-bike sessions under the tutelage of EPA coaches Stephen Gall and Wayne Maxwell are planned for the camp, along with a number of psychological testing and development seminars run by renowned sports psychologist, Jacqui Louder.
The final eight riders selected ‰ÛÒ Mitchell Evans (Motocross), Fraser Higlett (Enduro), Ben Kearns (Enduro), Jaimon Lidsey (Speedway), Broc Pearson (Road Racing), Tom Edwards (Road Racing), Lachlan Taylor (Road Racing) and Troy Guenther (Road Racing) ‰ÛÒ were all chosen as a result of impressing at the initial EPA camp on the Gold Coast in June.
MA‰Ûªs National Development Officer Laurence Miller said elements of the upcoming camp would differ from those encountered by the athletes at the first camp.
‰ÛÏThere will certainly be a greater emphasis on the riding component at the camp this weekend,‰Û
