Dirt bike training boost

Yamaha Motor Australia is pleased to announce the expansion of its network of dirt bike instructors to cover all aspects of enduro, trail, MX and ADV riding.

Now riders across the country benefit in more locations and with an expanding number of industry leading dirt bike tutors. MX trainers Shane Booth and Chris Urquhart join off road instructors Lyndon Heffernan and Josh Green under the bLU cRU pit tents.

The four additions boost the existing bLU cRU setup that features existing trainers as well as ride parks, trail and ADV rides and technical advice/setup to offer full nationwide coverage for riders of all off road disciplines abilities.

Motodevelopment’s Shane Booth and Chris Urquhart are tasked with producing a new series of online motocross how to videos along with several Moto Master Class events.
“It’s a nice feeling being back on a YZ and working with Yamaha Australia once again. We have some great friends that are part of the bLU cRU so to be able to potentially work with them on events once again is an exciting prospect. We are looking forward to rolling out a series of new MX how to videos that help riders improve while also showcasing the whole YZ range, right down to the all new YZ65. 2019 should be great,” says NSW based Booth.

Booth’s QLD partner Chris Urquhart adds: “I’m excited to be back on blue where I spent most of my professional racing and coaching career. Our plan to grow our digital presence with our Motodevelopment How To clips is a challenge that Boothy and I are looking forward to. It will be fun to be working with the whole bLU cRU team again.”

Join Team Active8 and the bLU cRU at the next event – the Sunny Corner Trail Ride on 16 to 18 Sept 2018.
