At Loretta’s Toyota will be offering Toyota Athlete Development Clinics along with the Toyota Athlete Performance Zone. The Performance Zone will provide warm up and cool down facilities for the riders. The Development Clinics will be held daily (Tues — Friday). The clinics will be held twice daily at 10-11am and 4-5pm. Each day will be a new topic with the same clinic being delivered twice daily to accommodate racer’s schedules. The warm up facility is an area for riders to slowly bring their body temperature up to prepare for the race using light exercise. The cool down facility will provide riders the chance to properly and safely bring their body temperature down after the race. Robb Beams, physical trainer, will be monitoring the Athlete Performance Zone. He will also offer massage for the riders. Robb Beams is the owner of Motoendurance.net and has been working with racers for 17 years.
Registration for the TMX Athlete Program will also be available onsite. We’ll be giving out limited edition Toyota AMA Motocross tie downs for anyone who stops by and signs up (while supplies last for newly registered TMX athletes).
