Chengdu, Capital of China’s famous Sichuan Province, home of the Spicy food and Pandas welcomes the 1st Wuyang Honda-BG Training event over the 4-5/9/2010 weekend.
Sichuan is China’s most important Mid Western inland province surrounded by Yunnan, Guizhou, Hubei provinces and connected to the biggest Motorcycle capital of Chongqing, where a big number of China’s most famous Motorcycle manufacturers are based, so Sichuan and the neighboring regions are one of the most important markets for the Guangdong based Wuyang Honda company to have a bigger influence and share of the markts.
With the highly successful 1st Wuyang Honda-BG’s “Xin Fengyi” (Motorcycle modle name) Track challenge at Guangdong’s Sanshui Track in July, WY-Honda is really looking forward to this next Chengdu event.
BG team was at Chengdu in July inspecting all the available circuits, but due to the limited choice of circuits, it was finally decided on Chengdu’s Degao Auto school’s training track, but the Degao school track was not designed for Motorcycle use, and in order to make the track safe for our 2 wheels training, a lot of work needed to be done to the track, so BG’s Chengdu partner were busy getting contractors to trim off all the chest high grass, pave some of the potholes, and removing railings and trees in many run off areas allover the track, and on 3/9/10 Friday, when the BG team arrived at the Track, most of these work were done but many of the corners still need to be clean up properly, so the Team spend all day Friday getting the track ready to be used on Sat.
Sat morning the sky was overcastted, everyone was worried about rain, the 46 Students and the WY Honda entourage arrived at 9am for the 1st of the many Classroom lectures , there is a big mix of students from 11 cities in Sichuan province, other students are from Yunnan, Guizhou, Shandong, Beijing, Hubei provinces making it a Training course attended by riders from the most number of regions.
The Sat training went off without a glitch despite some light drizzles in the afternoon, All the riders were having a great time and really looking forward for the next day.
Everyone was greeted by a very wet Sunday morning, the BG team arrived at the Track at 7 am and it was raining quite steadily and by the time the Honda entourage arrived at 9.30am, everyone was disappointed as it doesn’t looked like the rain will stop at anytime soon, so it was decided that the Sunday morning will be all Classroom lecturing.
BG instructors Steven, KC, Sammo, Mark all take terms in explaining all the riding technique and doing demo on bikes, and all students were focusing and absorbing ever y word the instructors were saying, and by 11am, the rain finally slowed to a drizzle and after the instructors did some test laps, it was decided that the track is good to ride with due care from all the riders.
The 46 students was divided into 3 groups and each group taking turns to go on to the track, BG’s 3 instructors each took 5-6 riders running a 20 mins sessions, then in the afternoon, it was a challenge event organized for 12 most improved riders selected from the 3 groups of 46.
The Challenge race was a fierce fought battle among these riders and the still semi wet track has taken a toll on some of the more aggressive riders, the race was won by a rider from Yunan while the best Girl rider Li Yue took 3rd place bettering most of the other male compatriots.
Over the weekend, there was 6 girl riders participating in the training course making this the most female rider attended event, this has proved that more and more girls are getting more interest in Motorcycle sport and racing and we hope we’ll see a lot more female riders in the coming future.
Again, The Sunday night banquet is another heart warming evening when all the students take turns coming over thanking their instructors and getting autographs on their shirts and Caps , China Honda and Wuyang Honda bosses take turn also thanking BG team for a their hard work and a great job done.
The next Wuyang Honda-BG Training course is at Weishuiyuan Circuit in Xian city, Shannxi province in late Sept, and we’re all looking forward to a even bigger event.
