ATV / UTV / Side by Side
Expert Classes for Recreational
Experts are advanced riders/drivers who have maintained the passion and desire to challenge themselves while riding over a period of time. Although they can negotiate most types of terrain and weather conditions, they desire to be even more comfortable in doing so. These individuals love the sport, constantly try to perfect their existing skills and are excited about their next level of skill development.

- Do you know how to find poorly marked trails?
- Have you ever come upon two trees that forgot to measure the width of your ATV / UTV before they grew up?
- Have you ever used too much front brake?
- Do you know when to sit and when to stand while riding?
