There’s always something to learn, something to improve upon, something to take back. This especially holds true for the level four training offered at the California Superbike School (CSS). I have just returned from the latest edition of the school held at the Madras International Circuit (MIC) near Chennai, and to say it was an eye-opener, would be an understatement.
For those not in the know, CSS is one of the oldest and most scientific riding schools in the world founded — and improved upon relentlessly – by Keith Code. The school has been coming to India for many years now, courtesy of the enthusiastic father-son duo of TT Varadarajan and Siddharth Trivellore who also happen to run the household appliances company Vidiem.
Now, in most other countries where CSS is conducted, it is a one-day affair wherein students only get to experience one level of training per school. However, the California Superbike School India is run over three days and students go through all three levels. But, for those who have already attended levels one through three, there’s level four. Though it is expensive – almost twice the fees for levels one, two, and three put together – it is worth every penny.
However, there’s a catch.
