CSS riding course in Chennai

Jan 9 2013, 8:24am CST | by

Chennai, Jan 9 (IANS) The California Superbike School (CSS) will be conducting a three-day course for the aspiring at the MMRT track here Jan 18-20 followed by another camp Jan 25-27.

Chennai, Jan 9 — The California Superbike School (CSS) will be conducting a three-day course for the aspiring at the MMRT track here Jan 18-20 followed by another camp Jan 25-27.

The school offers comprehensive training for riders of GP and Sports bikes to full dresser Harleys and Cruisers. TVS Motors and BMW Motorrad are supporting CSS India with the former providing track ready Apache RTR 180 bikes for the students and the latter BMW S1000RR for the coaches.

The CSS was founded in 1980 by Keith Code and has trained over 1.5 lakh riders in 27 countries including riders in MotoGP, World Superbikes (WSBK) and various other road-racing series.

Having produced World Champions such as Wayne Rainey, James Toseland, Thomas Luthi and Chris Vermuelen, the school returns to Chennai after three very successful stints since arriving on Indian soil for the first time in 2010.

An initiative that helps one evolve riding skills into a safer yet faster rider, the school had all of its 126 slots for 2013 booked within a day of opening its registration to the public.

While Leon Camier, the 2009 British Superbike champion who currently rides for Crescent Suzuki in WSBK, was a guest coach for the 2012 Chennai School, this year, CSS India has Joe Roberts on board as guest coach.

Roberts is a 15-year-old racing prodigy personally coached by Keith Code since 2008. Roberts started competing at the age of seven and finished joint eighth in the Red Bull Rookies Cup (KTM RC 125cc bikes), a series designed to discover future MotoGP racing talent that runs as a support series at Grand Prix events.

Among the most notable products of CSS Chennai has been Sarath Kumar who took part in the 2011 125cc class in Moto GP and became the first Indian to do so.

The first year of CSS's presence in India in 2010 marked the school's very first foray into Southeast Asia with T.T. Varadarajan spearheading the entire operation.

Varadarajan said: "We brought the school to India to satisfy two main goals: One is to provide the right skill sets that are necessary to perform at the highest level of motorsport to talented youngsters who do not have access to world class training.

"The other is to improve the riding skills of every motorcycle rider to make him/her conscious of safe riding practices, which is the responsibility of any motorcycle rider on the road.

"India being a country which has the highest number of road fatalities in the world, needs initiatives such as CSS to help educate riders on safe and skilled riding practices.

"The Indian motorcycle industry is evolving and with bigger displacement bikes on offer, attending CSS will help new riders cope with the increase in power of these larger and faster bikes.

"Over the past 3 years, I'm really pleased with the response we've had and we're all really looking forward to taking it to a new level once again in 2013," said Varadarajan.

In 2012, of the 10 qualified Seminarists worldwide, five were part of the Chennai school. In addition, all three of CSS's chief riding coaches and their deputies were also present.

As a result, the 2012 Chennai school had the largest gathering of qualified coaches in one location amongst the thousands of schools that have been delivered worldwide.

Code said: "The Chennai camp is one of the most sought after school weekends in our calendar and the coaches love coming back year after year. Unfortunately, we have only a limited number of seats, so we like to focus on the upcoming riders.

"Hopefully we will continue to produce some of the country's best riding talents. Having Joe Roberts on board this year will give Indian riders some great new insights and definitely add a new dimension to their riding. He is an exceptional young talent and we're glad to have him work with us in 2013."
