Questions often asked about my MX Riding Technique DVDs:
The oldest was produced in 1992. At this time the newest production is 2011 and 2012. The techniques are still the same but there are several new techniques in the newer DVDs. Of course the bikes and gear look different. At the end of every DVD description will be the copyright date (example CR 2006).
There are three Technique Series Volumes (Technique Series Volume I including DVDs 1 through 8, Series Volume II including DVDs 1 through 4) and Series Volume 3 including DVDs 1 through 8. Then there are five stand alone DVDs, two CDs and a Motocross Practice Manual. It’s fine to buy an entire Series or buy them in order but you don’t have to except for the Volume 3 Series as it is made to watch in order. The best way is to read the DVD descriptions and watch the DVD preview. Some DVDs are broad; covering a lot of different techniques and some are more specialized; going more in depth on certain techniques and subjects. If you have any questions contact Cindy (firstname.lastname@example.org or Gary email@example.com) or call our Office; 330-424-8049 or Gary’s cell; 330-277-9588.
