Dean of ATVs, 9-Time GNCC Champion Bill Ballance, will lead this year’s Yamaha Racing ATV instructors, including current XC2 points leader Walker Fowler, Taylor Kiser, 7-Time GNCC Champion Traci Cecco and Johnny Gallagher.

The panel of professional instructors will head several groups of students according to bike size and riding level to ensure each student is learning with a group similar to his/her riding ability.  Students will learn proper navigation of up hills, down hills, grass tracks, woods, rocks and mud, as well as how to handle competitive starts. Students will also participate in lectures about sportsmanship, training, nutrition and mental preparation.
