It has been a great season so far for RMJ motocross academy. This motocross academy is run by Richard-Mike Jones (someone I actually used to coach when he raced!) and works with rides from Junior rookies through to GP racers. His Elite Academy is comprised of Adam Sterry, Ashley Wilde, Dexter Douglas, James Cottrell, Jack Bintcliffe, Matt Burrows and Nathan Dixon, who all work with me on their fitness and conditioning to tie in with their riding plans through Rich.
Integrating the training and riding is one of the big challenges and now we are in to the season, everyone is doing slightly different schedules and series’ so getting the balance is key for them.
We recently had an assessment day and re-tested a number of areas first assessed back in November. It was great to compare results and look at the % change across a range of different areas. There were also some clear correlations between riders which was great to note and learn from. To get more than 20% improvements in certain areas is really significant and shows the effort they have all been putting in! Really proud of their efforts and it is testament to a good training programme and integration with riding and racing calendar.
The MXGP heads to Matterley Basin this weekend and RMJ riders will be in full effect racing GP, Honda CRF150 cup and EMX, so they will be looking for more success!
