Dear Moto Master Class Entrants,

It is with much regret we have to inform you that the 2015 Moto Master Class at Coolum on August 31st & September 1st has been postponed due to Michael Byrne suffering some injuries during a training crash whilst fulfilling his duties as Chad Reed’s training partner this week.

Byrner is in hospital with broken ribs and a partially collapsed lung. Specialists have advised that he is unable to fly from Florida to Australia let alone ride a motocross bike. He will undergo a manipulative procedure to reposition the fracture and is set to make a full recovery.

A word from Michael Byrne -

“ Hey guys, talk about bad timing! Unfortunately injuries are part of our sport and I really apologise for being unable to attend an event that I’m so passionate about. I spoke with Chris and Shane at length about options and we all agree we want Moto Master Class to maintain the high standard that we have set in the past and that postponing the event is the best solution. My lung injury also means flying is out of the question for at least the next week or so which also obviously affects the event. I will heal up and we will get a new date set and I look forward to getting back home to work with all the riders that have chosen to be part of Moto Master Class.”

In the nature of the Moto Master Class events being built around top level world class riders, with this short notice it is impossible to get a substitute for Byrne. We will work towards setting a new date and having Byrner attend once he has fully recovered.

If you have paid by credit card it will be refunded to you and if you have paid by direct deposit please reply with your bank account details and we will transfer the money back to you.

We apologise for any inconvenience but Michael’s health is paramount at this point.


Chris Urquhart, Shane Booth and the team at Motodevelopment

Motodevelopment is proud to announce the 2015 Moto Master Class featuring Michael Byrne.

Moto Master Class is continuing its successful formula of pairing some of the greatest motocross racers with the countries most experienced coaches. The two-day course curriculum will focus on conquering the Coolum circuit, including riding techniques, starting and even bike setup.

MXstore is offering an EXCLUSIVE head start to this event to our loyal customers and the best chance to secure one of the sought after positions to this event. This clinic has limited positions available with a maximum of approximately 50 riders being accepted for the course to ensure a very personal coaching experience is delivered to each rider over the 2 days.

Michael Byrne will once again make the journey home from the US where for 2015 he has worked closely with Chad Reed as his training and riding partner.

“I really enjoy the Master Class courses and it is great that we are able to continue to put them together, so to be heading back again is great. I loved seeing the young riders improve during the previous courses and really hope we can see more of it. It will be great to help riders work out the demanding Coolum track and also conquer the soft surface, especially those racing the Australian Junior MX Champs in Bunbury later in the year.” says Byrne.


Your instructors include Michael Byrne, plus Yamaha Australian Institute of Motocross Level 2 coaches Chris Urquhart and Shane Booth.
