Racers at heart, take note. Quarantine Restraints are much more than cargo nets. They’re complete securement systems. Our wrap straps will keep your motorbike or ATV safely and perfectly secured to your tow vehicle or pickup bed.
Quarantine Restraints Wrap Straps and Cargo Net Accessories
Racing is awesome, but also dangerous, and should only be done at the track. Most often, that means hauling your bike or ATV with your truck or trailer. Excellent for effectively holding down motorbikes and ATVs, Quarantine Restraints’ 2-in-1 securement systems, wrap straps, extenders and cargo net accessories worth considering before attending one of Alberta’s accredited racing schools.
Your participation in either school allows you to apply for your Calgary Motorcycle Roadracing Association (CMRA) Competition License. Schools are located in Calgary and Edmonton.
Calgary: The CMRA Motorbike Racing School
Address: Cardel Theater 180 Quarry Park Blvd SE
The CMRA Motorcycle Racing School tests skills for organized competition during the Regional and National Championships. Riders under 18 should request a Consent Form before applying.
Friday Evening Classroom Sessions (registration begins at 6 p.m.
The following skills are covered:
- Bike and rider preparation
- Proper racing lines
- Proper technique for braking and cornering
- Collision avoidance
Saturday Track Sessions from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Allowing riders to practice what they’ve learned in the classroom, track sessions are held on a closed course, with riders in small groups. Your bike must be in safe, road-worthy condition and tires in good condition. It is suggested (but not required) you bring your sport-bike type street legal motorcycle; however, the CMRA welcomes race-ready bikes.
Edmonton: EMRA Roadrace and Performance Riding Schools
Contact the EMRA Hotline 780- 450-3968 for information on class times or to get directions.
At the EMRA Roadrace and Performance School, students take courses on motocross bikes, dual-purpose motorbikes, and sport touring bikes. Riders are placed in groups based type of motorcycle and riding skills and allow every student opportunities to work on their skills. The EMRA requires Snell 2005-approved helmets and eye protection suitable for racing.
Like the CMRA classroom course, the EMRA Roadrace/Performance School covers preparation of bike and rider, racing lines, braking and cornering techniques and how to avoid a crash. In track sessions, students having the proper protective gear join a designated small group (with others having comparable ability and equipment) but receive individualized riding instruction from EMRA instructors.
Requirements for Both the CMRA and EMRA Racing Schools
Side-stands are allowed for school but not for racing, and every bike must be equipped with a functioning engine kill-switch. Since antifreeze is slippery and invisible, drain and flush your tank and fill it with distilled water if you plan to race.
The following gear is required for tracks and track sessions:
- Approved full-face helmet (Snell 2000, BSI, or ECE standards)
- One or two-piece full racing leathers
- Leather boots and gloves
- Back protector
The following parts must be removed or covered with tape:
- Mirrors and reflectors
- Turn-signal lights
- Headlights and taillights
- Glass lenses on instruments (with the exception of tachometers)
Every rider’s bike and protective gear require a technical inspection prior to track sessions. Jeans or other non-leather motocross gear is not accepted.
