After dealing with COVID the past couple of years, we are excited to be relaunching the MotorcyclingSA Elite Rider Program in 2022!
This year, the event will take place across two days on Saturday October 22 and Sunday October 23 at Woodhouse Activity Centre in Piccadilly, about 30mins drive from the Adelaide CBD.
“It’s great for us to finally be in a place where we can bring together the best promising riders across all disciplines, to learn skills and knowledge to help them take the next steps in their riding careers,” said Ryan Smith, Communications Officer for MSA and the organiser of this year’s event. “Our hope is that not only will participants learn a lot from the experience, but also forge new friendships with other riders outside of their disciplines as we continue to purposefully develop sport-wide events to break down barriers in our sport.”
Aimed at SA’s finest and most talented young riders aged 17-22, a comprehensive program is being developed that will assist participants in building their careers in motorcycle sport. “We’ve been speaking with some pretty impressive partners from our sport, industry and State Government to put together a really compelling two days,” said Smith. “This isn’t just a chat with a few people you’ll have seen at a race day or hanging out at the MSA office. Participants will hear from special guest speakers and industry professionals, and participate in leadership, teamwork and physical activities specifically designed to build skills they can use as they continue to develop themselves and their riding.”
Applications are open now through to COB on Friday September 23, 2022 – with the final selected riders to be announced in October. Interested riders shouldn’t delay though, as spaces are limited and competition will be tough. “MSA were inundated with applications for past Elite Rider Programs, and we don’t expect this year to be any different,” added Smith. “This is such a huge opportunity that will be open only to the best of the best – so your submissions will really need to impress!”
