The Yamaha Riding Academy has trained more than 20,000 students in motocross racing, and a six-year-old rider has won a PW-50 to mark the occasion.

Yamaha’s motocross riding school is operated by Canadian Motorcycle Training Services and provides free basic riding instruction for kids aged six to 12.

The school began in 1998 with three PW-50 mini bikes but has grown into a much larger program that travels across the country, providing instruction to more than 3,000 kids in 2008.

Six-year-old Matteo De Vincenzi was presented with his own PW-50 at the Vancouver Motorcycle Show to celebrate the occasion (lucky oik!).
