Shane Watts and his Dirt Wise Riding Schools Donating to RiderDown for each Student

Shane Watts and his Dirt Wise Riding Schools have decided to help make this a banner year for the RiderDown Foundation by donating a portion of each student’s tuition fee from each school throughout 2008.

Shane, the former GNCC and World Enduro Champion, is conducting these highly informative Dirt Wise schools, based on improving offroad-specific riding skills and technique in various places across the US and abroad. 

“It is huge for RiderDown to have someone as influential as Shane Watts support us like this,” said Bruce Vermeulen, President of RiderDown Foundation. “We are very excited that Shane chose RiderDown as the recipient of his generosity. It’s people like Shane that are making a difference!”Â

“The RiderDown Foundation is an organization that I strongly believe in,” says Shane Watts. “The offroad motorcycle community is like a close knit family and when tragedy strikes we rely on family to support us through the tough times. It’s good to know that RiderDown is there to provide additional support for those injured riders that require it.”Â
