Questions often asked about the GSMXS Riding Technique DVDs:
How old are the DVDs?
The oldest was produced in 1992. At this time the newest production is 2015. The techniques are still the same but there are several new techniques in the newer DVDs. Of course the bikes and gear look different. In the ‘additional information’ area of every DVD description will be the copyright date (example copyright 2006).
There are so many DVDs, which one/ones should I order?
There are three Motocross Technique Series Volumes (Technique Series Volume I including DVDs 1 through 8, Series Volume 2 including DVDs 1 through 4) and Series Volume 3 including DVDs 1 through 8. Then there are five stand alone DVDs, two CDs and a Motocross Practice Manual. It’s fine to buy an entire Series or buy them in order but you don’t have to except for the Volume 3 Series as it is made to watch in order. The best way to determine what’s right for you is to read the DVD descriptions. Some DVDs topics are broad, covering a lot of different techniques and some are more specialized- going more in depth on certain techniques and subjects. If you have any questions contact us or call our Office at 330-831-8945.
With all the new 4 strokes do the older DVDs still apply?
Yes, 2 stroke or 4 stroke- the techniques are still the same. Of course, there is a different feel between the two but the riding techniques are the same.
Are these DVDs good for all ages?
Most of the DVDs are beneficial for even the youngest riders. We have found that even 4, 5 and 6 year olds will watch our DVDs for weeks. In this case they learn from seeing and hearing things through repetition. The DVDs that are not beneficial for riders under 14 are the fitness training DVDs like: Eliminating Armpump and The MX Conditioning DVDs.
Are the Technique DVDs good for Off Road Riders too?
Yes, the techniques apply to the motorcycle and rider.
What are the differences between the two #3 DVDs about jumping and whoops?
Motocross Training DVD #3 in Volume I was produced in 1994; #3 in Volume II was produced in 2006. The newer DVD has more techniques.
What DVDs teach 'air time'?
Our Private MX Lesson DVD, both #3 DVDs in Volumes 1 and 2 and DVDs 6, 7 and 8 in Volume 3 each teach jumping techniques.
What DVD teaches how to whip the bike?
Our Private MX Lesson DVD, both #3 DVDs in Volumes 1 and 2 Series and the #8 DVD in VO3 teach whipping the bike. DVD #8 in VO3 also teaches Scrubbing the jumps.
