The 811 camp will held the Monday after the Red Bud Pro National on July 8th of this year. On the Anniversary of losing one of the badest dudes on the planet; WE RIDE... Josh Lichtle’s spirit will be heavy in all of our hearts. He was the type of rider who pushed himself, trained hard and inspired the people around him. In his memory we will be running the 811 Training Camp at Baja Acres, the track where Josh had his first race. The camp will create a link0 between professional riders and amateur riders allowing them to pass down their knowledge and experience. With some of Josh’s fellow racers and friends including Davi Millsaps, Nico Izzi, Josh Hansen, Brandon Mays and more to be announced. Lessons from professional riders can help amateur riders to avoid the pit falls that many riders go through and put them on a path for success. Take the opportunity to experience how a professional trains and learn to prepare yourself mentally, physically, and nutritionally.
