Owner Colleen Millsaps, along with others, saw the need for a place where aspiring racers could have a structured program that would help them realize their dreams of making it in the sport. They set out to create a full-blown training facility that would revolutionize motocross training by providing first class facilities and state of the art programs. MTF opened in 2003 and now with backing from companies like Red Bull, Factory Connection, Dunlop, Under Armour, FMF and Scott Goggles they have achieved that goal.
Colleen and her team have extensive experience in the operation of motocross training facilities and the implementation of structured motocross training programs. MTF is designed to be a “state of the art facility” for the serious amateur and aspiring professional motocross racer.
MTF has a challenging motocross track and an amateur SX track with computerized lap timing/scoring systems that allow rider and coach to monitor progress on a daily basis. This information is accessible at MTF or by internet access for parents. At a second nearby location there is another full outdoor motocross track and two pro supercross tracks.
MTF’s structured riding programs are under the direction of Colleen Millsaps. Colleen guided Davi to an East Coast Lites championship and was instrumental in the development of Bryan Johnson, Martin Davalos, Austin Stroupe, Justin Barcia, Kyle Peters, Dakota Alix, Pierce Brown, Nate Thrasher and Jarrett Frye amongst others.
Currently Colleen is working with professional riders Jordon Smith, Martin Davalos, Dakota Alix, Anthony Rodriguez, Dirco Van Der Westhuizen, Marcus Phelps and Brady Gilmore along with top amateurs Mason Gonzales, Tristan Lewis, Gage Linville, Jazzmyn Canfield, Myles Gilmore and many others.
Colleen’s structured riding programs have proven to be outstandingly successful. MTF’s integrated approach and dedication to on track training, physical training, mental skills, nutrition, racing, scheduling and injury prevention is demonstrated on a daily basis. We are committed to assisting the rider in every aspect of their development.
Our challenging tracks, extensive experience in motocross training programs and complete dedication to our riders is why MTF is like no other. In the end, championships are won by those individuals who have the opportunities and influences that MTF has to offer. So…where are you training?
