Donnie Hansen Motocross Academy, Videos 1 and 2

I paid full retail for these two videos, and I am bummed.

Who: Donnie “Holeshot” Hansen. Former Factory Honda rider with Supercross, National Motocross and Trophee des Nations titles. He teaches schools in Southern California. He might be a great teacher, but it does not come through in the video.

Video 1: Starts/Braking

Video 2: Cornering/Passing

MSRP: $35 each

Good: It’s always beneficial to watch good riders, and the videos contain some gems of knowledge. But those gems are worth about 10 minutes and $10, not an hour and $70.

Bad: Haphazard organization. Rambling speeches. Unclear instructions. These videos really annoyed me.

Worth buying?: No!

    Not yet. I need to try the Gary Semics videos. They’re considered the best — we’ll see.

    Yeah, I know what you mean after I had crashed and taken out my spleen my mom got me the DHMA videos and they really did not help me at all. I also went to one of the actual courses in Colorado Springs but all Donnie did was sit back and tell his assistant to tell us (about 10 other riders) what to do. The videos really are not worth the money. Just like you said. Neither are the actual riding courses.
