Team USA ATVMX will host a riding school on July 28 at RedBud MX in Buchanan, Michigan, as a fundraiser for the team’s upcoming competition at Quadcross of European Nations happening Sept. 24-25 in the Czech Republic.

The four-hour school will start at Noon and will cover a variety of racing skills, including starts, turns and jumps. Riders will learn from Team USA ATVMX athletes Ford Brothers Racing/Fly Racing/SSi Decals/Maxxis/DWT/Maxima/Fourwerx/Walsh’s Bryce Ford, Phoenix Racing/CST Tires/Elka/Moose Racing’s Joel Hetrick and Wienen Motorsports/Maxxis/SSi Decals/Fly Racing/Yamaha’s Chad Wienen.

“This is an exclusive opportunity for racers to progress their skills on the national track prior to round nine of the AMA Pro ATV Motocross National Championship,” said Team Manager Mark Baldwin. “Bryce, Joel and Chad enjoy helping riders of various skill levels advance their racing techniques. I’d also like to thank RedBud MX for allowing the team to use the facility for this special event.”

A donation of $500 will lock in a spot at this limited-entry riding school. To register, please contact Harv Whipple at or 309-314-4879.
