I've yet to see any advertisements for any MX schools in and around the Texas area. My only suggestion to you is to try to hook up with a Local pro and get some lessons. Here in San Antonio a local pro, Cole Brown, gives personal 1 on 1 lessons at the track of your choice for $20/hour. I'm sure H-town has some pros that could use some cash.

Good luck.

Badlands here in North Texas does some.

I have also seen Charlie Bogard doing some schools. I do not know where or when but you can try to find info on it.

Check with local tracks, they often has local pros doing clinics.

Larry Morton of 5 Magics Racing runs schools through out Texas and the Western U.S. Larry is an excellent instructor and has a lot of experiance to draw upon. Check him out at http://www.5mmxs.com/default.asp . By the way he lives in Houston and has schools at a private track in Dayton. Tell him Tyson Brown sent you his way.

El Paso is completely void of MX tracks (comment based on my once a year trip to El Paso). They used to have them many moons ago. I go back each summer with dreams of finding a track.... but end up doing the dez riding stint. I'm going to EP again in July.

There is a private track west of I10. You can see some of it from the road... but you gotta look. It's just south of the Sunland exit. They wrap the jumps with chain so it's unrideable unless you know the owner. It may not be used/maintained anymore.

I highly recommend Zak Mashburn. He's based here in the DFW area and does schools all over. He caters to all abilities and specializes in the little guys. I attended a 6 hour vet class with 4 other riders and learned a ton. I'm guilty of going riding and not focusing on a section of the track. I just get out and ride. Zak will break a track down to sections and drill you through each of the sections. I got a flat half way through the class and he handed me his 08 KXF450 to finish the day with.

He can be reached at 254.592.5131 or zak@familypowersports.com
