As a rider and parent of a rider, I used to constantly hear people preach seat time, seat time, seat time. I believe that there is more to seat time than just riding. What happens if you go out in a group of kids, mid pack, stay mid pack, and finish mid pack? Is that who you are? What happens if you are a mid-pack speed type of rider and start out front every time. Will you adapt to that level? The quality in that scenario is learning the fast pace up front for as long as you can hold it. So, when we talk about quality, we are talking about riding with a purpose. At Next Level, we don’t just show up at the track and jump in mid pack and ride at that level. We have a plan and a goal for the day to move each rider to their personal next level. Quality seat time is about setting attainable goals each ride that help a rider to decrease lap times. When you practice great starts and fast laps, you are put in a place to achieve those same results on race day. Quality seat time can be broken down into technique, conditioning, speed, line choice, starts, braking drills, clutch drills, entry speed, coasting speed, exit speed, vision and much, much more. At Next Level, we help each rider to set goals at each ride.
