I’m very excited about training with Gary, I think his training and workout programs have a great deal to offer. When I first met Gary he pointed out the simplest things about my bike set up, once we made those changes there was a huge difference in my riding.
He also has helped me with the positive mental thinking side of riding. That has help enormously! I think my future will no doubt include Gary Semics, I think who else would I have train me other than the man that helped train McGrath!

Gary & Cindy,
I wanted to let you know how very, very pleased Evan (#106) and I were with the school the past two days, 4/25 & 4/26. The whole experience was exceptional.
From my perspective as a parent, everything was handled with such professionalism. The reservation process, the instructions and information that was mailed to us, the response to email questions were all excellent.
The two days at the school were even better. The facilities, the organization, and the approachability of both of you (and David as well) made it all a wonderful trip for both of us.For Evan, the instruction was phenomenal.
The amount of information provided, the pace of the class, everything about it he found fantastic. He hasn’t stopped talking about it. On a scale of 1 to 10, he says itwas an 11. He just can’t stop talking about not only how much he learned, how much he sees how it has and will help him, but also how much fun it all was.
For you to be able to provide so much instruction and make is so enjoyable is really fantastic. He is really looking forward to practicing all the techniques he learned. And he is hoping to be able to return in the future to refresh his understanding as well as learning even more. He feels he grasped much of the information but knows that a return visit would be very helpful and that he has so much more to learn.
Again, I want to thank both of you for all you did for my son and myself.I do hope that we will make it out again when it makes sense for Evan.
Thank you SO much.
Just wanted to pass along a “thank you” for your products.
I am a 40+ rider now after 26 years away from the sport and purchased your complete catalog to get the much needed information to refresh my mind and I must say that all of the instructional materials have helped considerably!
Thanks Gary – I do ride smarter and safer thanks to your knowledge!!
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for having Austin (that 166 kid) attend your school.
As a parent, naturally I want to see my son succeed in anything that he undertakes. His passion is Motocross and he is determined to bring his skills to the highest level.
My wife and I could not have been more pleased in watching him at your school this past weekend.
Your teaching style fit perfectly with the way my son learns best. He learned more in the two days that we were at the school than I would have ever believed possible. You increased his skill level and more importantly, his confidence level as well.
This was by far, the best investment that we have ever made in Austin’s training. We will certainly be back for more instruction.
It’s literally unbelievable how much of a change you made in Austin.

I just wanted to thank you for hiring all those instructors because not all of us can come to california.
My instructor was “ike” he really helped me with controling the bike better.He also helped me in the corners and on the jumps.
After I came back from the school I practiced the techniques over and over,then my confidence went way up I just felt more in control.
I also read your practice manual everyday and it helps me out a lot. I would like to add that I really had a good time at the school, we made jokes while we were setting the bikes up and it was fun and thats how it should be.

Dear Mr. Semics,
I would like to thank you for the outstanding instruction you gave my son during the recent May 5th and 6th group class.
Your verbal instruction followed by your professional riding skills was perfect for PJ. At the conclusion of the class he was able to put his newly learned skills to the test at Budds Creek. His starts, turns and new found comfort with jumping allowed him to finish in the top 3 of both the schoolboy and 125B class events.
We just returned from the LL Unadilla area qualifier where he was required to learn the track for the first time and race all in the same weekend. He qualified for both the Schoolboy stock and mod classes.
I am convinced that he would not have been capable of such success without your professional instruction. We look forward to coming back for both individual and group classes in the future.

Gary, my son Jake (15) and I really enjoy your videos. We have all of volume 3 and are looking forward to the next video. I am amazed how fast Jake has improved just by watching your videos and practicing the techniques. Jake moved up to a 250 last April and is usually one of the fastest riders at the tracks, thanks to the techniques you teach. Jake is going to try to qualify for Loretta’s in the 250B class this next year. Just wanted to say thanks.
Your website say the next video will be out soon. Is there any way we can preorder the video?
I’m a new user of the Gary Semics motocross training DVD series which I stumbled on one day while searching the internet for training aids. As a 41 year old brand new rider with a 7 year old who loves to ride as much as I do . . . well, suffice to say that Gary’s videos have been incredible. I bought his largest package and have learned so much in a short period of time.
Lastly, tell Gary (I’m assuming you’re related) that the “Goon Riding” was the funniest thing we’ve ever seen – mainly because it reminded my whole family (5 of us) EXACTLY what I looked like when I started riding for the first time this past May – what a grin!! It was priceless – absolutely priceless to see my family and myself laugh as hard as we did!!! Thanks for that.
Lastly, my son loves the Gary Semics T-shirt that came in our package, do you have them in X-Large? If yes, how much are they?
Thanks Cindy! Have a great weekend!!

Hi Gary & Cindy,
Gary – your products are fantastic! I originally purchased a single streaming video to “test” your product. As a firm believer in getting information/instruction from someone who has “fruit on tree”, I wanted to see what you were about – AND YOU DID NOT DISAPPOINT!!
Within days, I returned to your site and purchased the largest package you offered – everything you had at the time (as I remember it) and that’s the subject of my inquiry. Since my purchase of the 2011 Everything Value Pack, you have produced two MUST HAVE videos (must have is my opinion of course) about jumping and scrubbing.
Do you have any discounts for folks like me that have purchased everything you produced at the time of order? I will be completely transparent and tell you that I am going to purchase them even if you don’t, I just thought you might have a discount code for folks that are 100% in with the Gary Semics program.
I will be giving your two newest videos to my son for Christmas.
PS – for what it’s worth, I’m 42 and only started riding 8 months ago. My son (7 yrs old – started riding 8 months ago too) and I are now “dirt bike buddies”! All we do with our free time is watch your videos, learn as much as we can, then take your book to the track to practice (riding only about 3 times a week right now)! We are doing our first race in Southern Utah this month (Dec 29th & 30) and we credit our confidence and desire to your training system.
Thanks again Gary, for reading this email, responding, and for taking the time to produce great videos that help beginners like me become decent riders in a short amount of time.
I look forward to hearing back from you!
I took one of Gary’s two day classes in Ohio 10-12 years ago when I was struggling in the C class. Prior to the class I had invested in all the hop up parts and suspension work I could afford and none of it made one shit bit of difference. Oh when I did case a jump it was smoother and my bike sounded bad ass but the trophies were few to nonexistent. I cannot stress how improved my whole skill set became after those two days. I have a barn full of trophies and one season championship under my belt (now retired from racing) and I really have to thank Gary for running a great program. BTW all that information helped me not only in MX but HS, GNCC, Ice Racing and Flat track.
If I were to do it again I would have gone to several of Gary’s classes when i was younger and only invested in better safety equipment.
BTW I’m not trying to spam Gary’s Schools but just giving you in my opinion the best advice I could to anyone who lines up on a gate.

My oh my what great memories I have hammering out countless hours of Semics drills. My dad was a tight ass & never sent me to his school, even thou we aren’t even 2 hours from his location. I myself was a beginner motocrosser that had only 3 harescramble races under my belt and laps put down on a couple backyard mx tracks.. So needless to say I wasn’t blitzing the whoops, railing berms or throwing fat whips. I was nothing more than a back marker in the 85cc 7-11 class of the local racing scene. I bullshit you not that within that same season I ended up beating kids that were waxing my ass at the start of it . Without a doubt the reason I made such quick improvements was by watching Semics VHS tapes (yes vhs) and religiously performing those drills for hours.. Turn tracks were what helped me the most, they’re the ticket.. I’d recommend any of his dvd’s or tapes.

this is Jared McConnaughey I went to the last class in 2009 and I just wanted to tell you how much it helped me with my weekly training.
Since taking your class I have done a lot of work and have recently bumped up to b class. Your class gave me not only the skill that I needed to advance in this rough sport, but also a butt load of confidence knowing that I was tought by the man who trained all of guys I look up to, and one of the best trainers around.
I just wanted to say thanks for everything you do, and see how the moto school is doing. I’m thinking of coming back up to Lisbon this coming year for another class.
Keep it up you don’t know how much it means to riders like me to train with you.
