Another fantastic month for OatesMX, February has seen the start of our junior and senior state preparation clinics with great results and feedback from our riders. We also held our first for 2016 Yamaha OatesMX clinic in S.A with our local coach Jordan Waters, again another sold out clinic and the first of many this year with our SA collaboration.
With all three 2 day clinics booked out we had our whole team on board this month, Our junior and Senior Victorian preparation clinics saw Yamaha OatesMX and its riders really attack the track, with a lot of simulated race drills and more, Showcasing at our Junior Prep clinic was our 125 program where we saw head coach Jades Oates on board the YZ 125 machine demonstrating to the riders how its done.
“I am so lucky to be able to ride the YZ 125 at our junior programs, I get to be out there riding and demonstrating all drills and techniques on the 125, it’s a massive advantage for us, we can really relate to the kids! And we are getting sensational feedback from it!” – Jades Oates
Murray Bridge 2 day clinic was one of the biggest clinics we have run to date, with early mornings, late nights and jam-packed days we really put in 110%.
“Our schedule was jam packed, we put everything on the table over the weekend and went the extra mile, we knew we had to make a great 2016 impression and I believe we went above and beyond! From techniques to race drills and games where the riders could win them selves a prize thanks to Thor mx Australia, Michelin and Spy incorporated with our new speed radar gun, rut limbo games and more we were able to give away some fantastic prizes, we really stepped it up” – Jordan Waters
OatesMX also participated in the Thor Family photo shoot for 2016, onboard our Yamaha’s proudly showcasing all of our sponsors and of course dressed head to toe in Thor gear and casual wear.
“Yamaha’s OatesMX is only getting warmed up, the calendar is booking out fast, we are heading to Alice springs NT in a few weeks time and a week after that straight to Karratha WA. I would like to take the time to thank the whole team that are behind us and our amazing sponsors – Yamaha Motor Aus, Thor, Spy, SPMX, Maxima, The collective, Alpinestar, Giant South Yarra, Topline, Michelin, Zeta, Gas Imports, Steve Cramer Products and Mash.
