Are you ready to learn how to slide in the dirt? If that sounds good to you, then you’ll be happy to learn that Royal Enfield and Moto Anatomy are back with their Slide School program for 2022. This year marks the third season for the program, and it’s expanded to offer more dates and opportunities for riders looking to learn how to slide a dirt track bike around than ever before. 

Join Royal Enfield and Moto Anatomy American Flat Track racer Johnny Lewis for Slide School at any one of ten dates across the U.S. during the 2022 season. The dates are scheduled to neatly coincide with Progressive AFT race dates throughout the season, as well, so you can make a weekend of it if you like.  

At present, Lewis says they’re up to their 400th student—which is pretty impressive, considering. “This is our third year doing the Royal Enfield Slide School,” Johnny Lewis said in a statement.  

“It’s neat that we’ve been able to expand the schools, and add new stops. Flat tracking is hugely popular right now, and I love introducing people to the slide technique. It’s always fun to see the look on their faces when it all comes together. The slide is an art, and once you nail it, it’s hard to get away from that feeling!” he concluded.

Slide School is a course aimed at beginner-through-intermediate level riders who want to learn the basics of slide technique, just like professional AFT racers use. Riders will use Royal Enfield FT 411 bikes, which are based on Himalayans. There is, of course, no front brake—but that’s all part of the fun in mastering slide technique.
