Any of you ever attended American Supercamps? My son and I are attending in April in Delaware...should be a blast....my only worry is I just recently had 2 total knee replacements and cannot mess things up. I've got a pair of Leatt C Frame knee braces and should be good to go..I'm in great shape physically, just want to know what to expect from someone who's done it...I know crashing is part of the learning process there, and I'm a real slow learner, but a great crasher...current rides include KTM 300XCWe woods bike and a tricked out Super Tenere.

Did it about a year ago. Don't worry, you'll be fine. Good physical fitness and soem good knee braces will serve you well. The speeds are pretty low and the ground is flat. He provides boots with fairly smooth soles (they are light too) if you don't have some already. I got to chase Steve Bonsey part of the time... or I should say, Steve Bonsey let me think I was chasing him.... one note... I stayed with the same bike all day and should have switched. The brakes on mine faded bad and we didn't adjust them... made slowing down for the turns really hard.. Have fun...

I attended in Delaware. Super fun, and you will learn a lot. Falling is generally tucking the front and gently low-siding. Nobody had a bad getoff the entire two days I was there.

Great people, great teaching. GOOD investment of both time and money.

I've been twice...

Both times in Springfield, a couple of years apart. Do plenty of lunges to prepare, like they recommend, take a couple of preemptive ibuprofen, and have fun. Worth every penny, I'd say.
