Walton Raceway Update #3
WLTN RACEWAY X TRACKS + TRAINING
Walton Raceway will offer instruction, training and bike rentals in 2021! From the very beginners to top racers, our instructors, led by our house Pro Dylan Kaelin, will help you improve your riding skills to reach the next level of excellence!
Dylan Kaelin is a USMCA certified coach and started Tracks & Training with the sole focus of sharing his personal knowledge of the motorcycle industry to help grow the sport across North America. Dylan started riding at the age of 3, and quickly developed into a national contender. By 2009 he made his Pro debut with the CMRC MX Pro National Series, but after an injury-riddled career, he stepped away from racing full time in 2015.
“My pursuit with Tracks & Training is to take the knowledge I have gained from the diverse range of motocross trainers that I was fortunate enough to work with during my racing career and pass it down to the next generation of Motocross riders! After my racing career, I was able to dive into the testing and development side of the industry with none other than Kris Keefer. Additionally, I spent 2.5 years working with KTM Canada and was able to expand my knowledge even further within the motorcycle industry. My focus is to bundle all of my knowledge of the motorcycle industry and pass it down to my clients. Our philosophy is to coach modern-day riding techniques, proper use of the motorcycle’s controls and the rider themselves in a positive atmosphere! Awareness-> Execution-> Performance. Rider safety & confidence is the main focus behind T & T. “
