Leave The Gate Flying - Mad March Racing Clinic at Massanutten

McGAHEYSVILLE, Virginia ( – Massanutten Resort is ready to host Mad March Racing for 2 days of Coaching Clinics in preparation for the first race of the Gravity East Series! “Starting the season off right and dusting off the winter cobwebs” is a key element to any racer’s success,” suggests World Masters Champion, Shaums March.

In response to requests by racers, Mad March Racing (MMR) and Massanutten Resort have arranged a series of coaching aimed at increasing the athlete’s success. Three coaching sessions with a team of MMR coaches have been prepared. New for both Massanutten and MMR is a unique three-hour session on which the course will be closed to other riders for the exclusive use of the session’s participants. Each of the Mad March Racing sessions will cover bike setup, reading the terrain, line choices, cornering and general riding technique.

The first option, which runs from 11:00am to 3:00pm on Wednesday May 7th, guarantees a quieter mid-week racecourse without large crowds. This session is limited to just 6 athletes, to ensure plenty of one-on-one coaching time.

The second option, running from 9:00am to 12:00pm on Friday May 9th, enjoys the unique opportunity of a closed course for only the session’s participants. With exclusive use of the course, participants are guaranteed plenty of runs and space to really focus on for the full session. This option is offered in both a beginner/intermediate, or an advanced/expert option. Space is limited to ensure one-on-one time between each athlete and the coach.

The final option is an afternoon session from 1:00pm to 4:00pm on Friday May 9th. This session, which runs during open practice, will cover similar elements to sessions one and two.

Pricing for the coaching sessions ranges from $108.00 to $162.50 per person. Private clinics are also available upon request. Racers can sign up for any of these events by visiting the following link: here

Mad March Racing is a proud sponsor of the Gravity East Series, and will continue to offer coaching events at each of the eight events.
