XLT Racing has taught Motocross racers
across the globe
Hey John, it's Tommy Tarr.
I wanted to write a quick note, and let you know how much I appreciate
your patience with Taylor. The attention you paid him was unexpected.
First class all the way. After that frustrating race here in Abilene, we
went to Midland Saturday night, and it all seemed to come together. It's
a much nicer track than what we have here, and the competition is much
stiffer. The 125 Novice class had a full gate, and the help you gave him
on starts made a huge difference. He looked a little tentative in
practice, but once the gate dropped, he definitely looked like a
different rider. He got tired during the first moto, and we decided he
wasn't using his legs enough. After the second moto, he said he felt
like he could have gone another couple of laps. That was definitely an
improvement. He finished with a 6th overall, and even beat his main
rival from Abilene. First time he's ever done that. I got goose bumps
watching him ride. I know 6th doesn't sound very good, but with that
competition, we were both really pumped up. Something positive to build
on for sure. If he were in better shape, I bet he could have had a
podium finish. I've got him on the bicycle to help with that. Anyway, I
just wanted to share our excitement with you. It wouldn't have been
possible without your help. Let me know how we can write a testimonial
for you and your school.
Thanks for everything, Tommy Tarr
Lane & Cole Gardner
Thank you for all of your help. When other people couldn't help us, you did. You
had the patience to train us and the drive to pump us up. You helped us overcome
our fear that we had. Without you we would not have gotten this far.
Your Students & Friends,
Lane & Cole Gardner
our son Ryan moved up from his Honda 50 to his Kawasaki 65, he
encountered a whole new world of riding that was extremely different
than what he was used to. Working with John of XLT Racing has taken Ryan
to a whole new level of riding. Within the first lesson we saw an
increased in Ryan's confidence level. From that point on, John has
worked with Ryan to teach him the proper form and technique which has
increased his speed and control on his bike. John works on all the
important components of being a successful rider and racer, including
the proper nutrition and exercises to keep the body in shape and race
ready. As John as worked with Ryan, he has also taken the time to
explain to us the level he wants Ryan to be at and how we can work with
him at home to continue what has been learned at the track.
With John's training and teaching techniques, Ryan will be back in the
race in no time. We highly recommend John and XLT Racing to anyone
looking to move from being an average rider to a winning rider!!
Thanks for all your help!! We will see you next Friday night.

Hi my name is Samantha, I am 12 years old, and have been riding for
four years. Since, I have been training with John, my skills have
improved tremendously. He has taught me positioning and balance on my
bike in corners, straight-aways, jumps and allot more. My racing lap
times improved within three lessons. John is a great teacher. He's
fun, nice, and always gets his point across very easily. Thank you
John for making motocross even more fun! See you soon!

We can't thank you enough for EVERYTHING that you've done for the
boys! Sometimes they are little kids and just want to play in the dirt
and other times they want to train and get better. You have made it fun
to learn as well as take it seriously! Your patience it truly a virtue
and I know it has been tested over and over!
The boys look forward to seeing you every week and you have become
much more than just their instructor, you have become a friend of the
family and are always welcome. If there is ever anything I can help you
with, just ask! You have taught my boys much more than just moto
cross and for that I am grateful.

Evan & Ethan Olsen
Just wanted to drop you a note and say Thank You. You have been very
patient and helpful in training Evan And Ethan. We have noticed extreme
improvements in their riding technique and their approach to the sport
in general. You have that special touch that makes the boys want to
listen to you and learn. You are a valuable asset to achieving our goals
in motocross. We look forward to a long and successful training
relationship, and friendship with you.
All our best

My son Ranger has been very inspired by your technique! Every time he
takes a lesson, his riding improves. He came from Hawaii a year and a
half ago, and was in the back of the pack. after one lesson he saw
results and now he's charging to the front. Your positive, dynamic
approach with him always builds his self-esteem, and he carries that in
all aspects of his life. We love the way you connect and encourage not
only Ranger, but also his Dad and I. The natural products you've given
him are great! He uses the ER911 it really helps in the tense race
situations. We really want to thank you for all that you've done for
Ranger, Chris and I. You have an amazing gift, thank you for sharing it
Aloha Chris, Betsy and Ranger Laidman
I just wanted to send a quick thank you for your help during our lesson.
The way you explained how to ride the motorcycle using my legs and where
to position myself on the bike made riding much more easy and has raised
my confidence when riding. On Aug. 20th I raced a SRA Grandprix at Glen
Helen and won my class (senior beg.) and placed 27th out of 74 riders. I
am looking forward to another lesson and more racing.
HYZER TAYLOR # 127
Thank you so much...you have
completely changed how i ride...I had no idea how many things i was
doing wrong....before I trained with you i felt like there's no way
that i could go any faster and then after i felt like i couldn't go
fast enough!! i look forward to training with you and i feel that you
can take me where i want to go...THANK YOU!!!!
We just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you. Nash has really
enjoyed his lessons and you. Anything you say he absorbs...If you tell
him to drink this or stand up or arms out .. He listens .. You have a
great way with kids and that's what counts with us. His riding ability
has grown tremendously since he began his lessons. He feels more
confident and is always looking forward to his next lesson or just
riding out there ,with you around.. We are definitely excited for the
future and what that holds for him.. As his parents we also just want
to say another thank you for the help you gave him with his injury. He
has great confidence in you and is still telling me what " John" said
to do. You made him feel special when he needed that extra confidence.
Thanks again ..

I have watched my son ride since the age of 4. I tried to teach him the
best that I knew of but until he started training with you, I saw a
uncertain rider that had no confidence what so ever.
Now I watch my son ride with a new found confidence. I am extremely
pleased with the progress with RJís riding skills, and plan on future
and frequent lessons.
Randy J. Smith
I want to thank you for all the help you gave me. In just the first
lesson my mom and friends could see the improvements I made. I found I
was looking forward to the next lessons with you because you made them
fun and challenging. Hope to see you in future lessons.
Dr Arm Pump is a great trainer. He knows what you need to do and what
you need to work on to get faster. Since I've been taking lessons at XLT
Racing my lap times and race results have diffidently improved, My dad
likes your rates.
Thanks Vince Hovsey # 158
I just got back from Washougal! I finished 7th. I am so much faster
in the corners thanks to you! I am really happy with the results of our
training session. I have had so many people try to explain things to me
with no results. The one lesson with you has made such a difference.
The way that you explained, your patience, and your encouragement have
given me more than the skills to go faster but the confidence to do it
too. I hope to see you soon. Thank you again.
Jolita Nava #114
Just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for all the extra attention
you've given me in my first 2 lessons with you.
I'm probably your only 50 year old student, but you've coached me with
the same attention and consideration that you give to your pro students,
and for that I'm thankful.
In just 2 lessons, I've gone from riding totally uncontrolled, to
actually feeling in control of my bike when I'm on the track. I now
actually believe that in time, I'll be able to ride with the best.
You have a unique way of explaining the details of how to ride, and
you combine that with high energy, fun, and a great time overall. I
really enjoy your approach to teaching, and hope to continue my lessons
for years to come.

John has a made a major impact on my kids performance. when my kids are
around John they perform like like I've never seen before. John gives my
kids so much confidence to the things they need to do to win races.
There cornering has improved 110 percent, there elbows are finally
staying up and there throttle has come alive and that's all with in a
couple of hours of
being around John.
My kids have only had a few lessons and I've watch how they have
connected with John. They feel very comfortable around him and he knows
how to get my kids full attention. I know if my boys could spend more
time with John they would go
from 3rd place to 1st place.
We'll be seeing again soon.
Hey, my name is Aaron Covington and I have been training with John
for about a month now and he is really incredible. He has increased my
lap times by at least 30 seconds and has taken me from a middle pack
rider to a front runner and win contender. His products also work super
good ( Dr. Arm pump). He has a really good, and positive attitude
towards his riders and is just a great guy. He Knows what he is talking
about and can probably help anyone like he helped me. His techniques are
the best out their and have won many championships
My name is Tanner Lovgren. I am 12 years old and I have been racing
motocross for almost 4 years. I am in the 85 Novice class. I like
working with John from XLT Racing because he really helps me with my
explains how to do things and makes sure I know why he is having me do
the things he is teaching me. He helps me understand why my body
position is important and how to get through the corners fast and be set
up for a jump. Every time I work with him my style gets better and I go
faster. When we race at Racetown John is always there encouraging me to
remember my basics, and that makes me go faster.
John at XLT Racing School has helped me a lot. I've been riding for
about 3 1/2 years and I am currently in the 125 Novice class. John has
been a great trainer because he explains what to do, when to do it, and
where to do it. If I don't understand what he is trying to teach me, he
explains it in a different way until I get it. He is really patient and
doesn't get mad if I don't get something right away. We work on every
part of the track, jumps,
corners, straight-aways, and starts. He really stresses body position
and how important it is no matter where you are on the track. John makes
learning how to be faster fun and easy.

My son has been using the Dr. Arm Pump
products for about two years now because they keep him calm, focused,
and energized. He really likes the Panther Juice for aches and pains and
the elimination of arm pump.

We have gone to many different
motocross schools and worked with many different people. However, your
dedication to helping Shane get to where he wants to be is above the
rest. We appreciate that you have a big heart and can communicate with
the kids in an encouraging and positive way. We especially love your
products. Shane wore the wrist bands everywhere he went, even while
Since you did such a great job in
teaching Shane for the past two years, it was easy for me to refer a
handful of his riding friends to you. I knew that you could teach them
to become better riders as well. Now, instead of watching Shane and his
friends ride at the back of the pack, it's pretty cool to see them up
Thanks for taking the average 14
year-old and giving him the knowledge that got him a 4th and
5th place standing at the 2005 World Minis. We look forward
to many more classes with you.
I would like to thank you for all that you do for my son Gabe. I have
seen a real difference in his ride, his efforts and his commitment to
this sport. i think you inspire my husband to take a more positive and
encouraging roll in our son's career.Gabe's confidence in himself as a
nation rider has greatly improved since he has been working with you and
we greatly appreciate all that you do for the sport.

I've been riding since I was 4 years old,
and I'm currently 14 years old. My focus is to become Pro in the next
couple of years
I've been riding at Racetown 395 in
Adelanto, CA, for the last 3 years. It's my home track and I enjoy
riding there. John (Dr. Arm Pump) has been training me, teaching me
about the necessities of proper nutrition, and treatment of injuries
when they occur. Dr. Arm Pump's knowledge and skill in motocross is
immense, and I have learned a great deal from him, which has allowed
me to be competitive within my classes and abilities. He's always
right there on the track with me, giving me the encouragement and
positive criticism I need to be better, and the results are immediate.
I know he's in my corner, and I couldn't ask for better support and
training that he offers. If anyone is looking for that special trainer
to compete against the best the sport has to offer, Dr. Arm Pump is
the man to see!!
I am 14
years old. I have been working with John from XLT Racing for a little
longer than a year on and off. When I started going to him I was on my
RM 85. I was a novice/intermediate rider in the worcs series. Then after
seeing him for a while I moved up to the expert level. I was also racing
my 125 at the time. He helped me on that as well. I was a beginner in
the 125 class. With his help I am now racing in the novice/intermediate
class. John has also helped me with my endurance and my confidence to
charge into corners and off jumps. He has been a very large help in
helping me become the rider I am today.
I am 11 years old. I started riding about 5 years ago. My first bike
was a XR50. Over the years, I have moved up to a KX65, and now a RM85.
About a year ago, I started training with John from XLT Racing. He
taught me how to go faster through turns, go through sand and mud, grip
the bike, and work with my style. With Johnís help, my riding style has
improved tremendously. I donít know where I would be without him.
I am 12 years
and have been riding for 5 years or so. I started on a xr fifty and
gradually moved up to a RM 85.
working with John about a year ago. Before I started with John I had
many problems in turns and jumps. He has helped me in learning how to
whip off jumps and do all of the jumps. And to rail the corners smoothly
and quickly. Without John I don't think I would be as good as I am
Thanks john for the
very helpful lesson, we are looking forward to many more, with just one
lesson Michael's racing speed and technique have improved more than
expected, thank you for helping him get to the novice racing class.
see you soon.
