We had a experience of a lift time with Kurt Nicholl and his wife Laurette at ChampionMX, to ride in California the worlds capital of moto cross with Kurt was fantastic and a must for anyone who is into moto-cross. We were made to feel at home and very comfortable.
Weather was great, the Temecula area was full of nice places to see and visit, full of top restaurants and bars so the whole holiday was enjoyed by the entire family.
Bikes provide were great and any alterations or adjustments were made by Kurt to suit our riding styles. Tracks were for all abilities with a choose most days of 2 or 3 tracks at the same venue.
This is an experience not to be missed.The Rideout family ( James, Jasmine, Jaew and Ian )
I raced in the era of some of the greats like Ricky Johnson, Jeff Ward, Kurt Nicoll and Dave Thorpe who were like gods. California seemed like another world and the tracks that were mentioned like Glen Helen, Elsinore and Pala Raceway were places only seen in print. This was the case until I came across the advert of Champion MX where I could not only meet one of my racing heroes but I could fly to SoCal to ride with him for what was very reasonable money. Myself and my son flew to America into LA and from the moment we landed to the time we flew home I must say that our experience was awesome. Kurt and Laurette are the most lovely welcoming people ever!
Ok the reality, Kurt is a god, still blisteringly fast on a bike but a real gent who made myself and Dominic feel very welcome and nothing is too much trouble and he wants you to get everything out of the experience.
The bikes are excellent, I was worried that my son and myself could end up riding substandard equipment but I must say that Champion MX supplied us everyday of our stay bikes that were new, clean and in excellent condition and fit to go and ride.
The tracks were awesome, the weather was awesome and the experience was awesome so much that I was pinching myself everyday that we were so lucky to experience this with one of my heroes!
I would recommend this to everybody who can fund the event which I thought was very good value for money. It was meant to be the experience of a lifetime but myself and my son enjoyed it so much that I think will now become an annual event.
I would like to thank Kurt, his wife and his team for such an amazing experience and I look forward to returning to California to do it all again soon.
