Y-AIM Coaches Looking Forward To Partnering Ricky Carmichael At RCU
Long-time Yamaha racers turned Y-AIM coaches Shane Booth and Chris Urquhart have partnered up with Ricky Carmichael, affectionately known as the dirt bike riding GOAT or Greatest Of All Time.

Carmichael and fellow legends Jeff Emig and Jeff Stanton are bringing the Ricky Carmichael University to Australia.

RCU has been running for several years in the USA and has visited Europe but this is the first time to Australia. The RCU will visit NSW and QLD at the Appin and Coolum circuits respectively. Initially one day was planned at each location but after Appin sold out in a matter of days a second date was released.

"It's great to be involved with such legends. There are well over 20 AMA National Championships between them so the amount of knowledge and experience that will be on hand is pretty special," explains Booth.

"This is something that Chris and I are really proud to be part of and it's such a great chance for Australian riders to meet some legends of our sport and learn as much as possible from them.

"It will be great to work alongside these guys and be able to add even more experience to our Yamaha Australian Institute of Motocross courses in 2016. It's also great that we can represent Yamaha on our YZ450Fs at such a high profile event," he continues.

Chris Urquhart goes into more detail about what the day entails.

"All of the instructors are on bikes and riding during the day so you not only get to learn from these guys but also ride with them." Urquhart explained. "The group rotates throughout the day so all riders will spend some time with all instructors.

"There is also a Q&A session at lunchtime where riders are encouraged to prepare questions for the guys.

"There is also a catered lunch included in the course. It's a real experience for the riders and they get to be part of a very cool event."

There are still positions available to enter RCU on the second day at Appin on Thursday Dec 3. To enter visit www.rickycarmichaeluniversity.com
