Colin Edwards is nearing completion on his new Texas Tornado Boot Camp rider training facility. Equipped with a roofed 1/4-mile oval, mini MX track, mini TT track, shooting range and paintball course, the boot camp promises to take advanced training out of the classroom and actually make it fun. Fellow Team Texas member Ben Spies will also be instructing.
The Boot Camp is divided into two and four-day schools and is all-inclusive, accommodation will be provided in the Old West saloon being constructed on the property. Available bikes are Yamaha TTR 110, 125 and 230s and there’s no damage deposit on them or on the provided safety gear.
The ridiculously enormous pavilion you can see was created to house the 1/4 mile oval in a weather-proof, lighted structure that will allow the school to operate at night, when Texas temperatures are bearable and even help the school avoid rain delays.
In addition to riding bikes, shooting each other with paint balls and improving your marksmanship with the aid of Navy SEAL instructors, other Mancation-style activities like wake boarding, go kart racing, RC car racing and swimming will be available to pass the afternoon heat.
The Texas Tornado Boot Camp is located just north of Houston and 2011 dates kick off in March.
