PRO-RIDER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
The RPSRaceTeam.com racing team is the evolving effort of Marcus McBain that began in 2002 when he first began training riders. Beginning with a successful school and then moving on to become the top Traxxion Dynamics dealer in the country by 2004, Marcus primarily focused on developing top talent in the Texas region at the end of 2005. In 2006, RPS closed to the public and Marcus McBain focused on running the team and his motorsports park project (Liberty Motorsports Park) which has incorporated a very innovative public financing structure.
In 2008, Marcus began to exclusively
work with Danny Kelsey and the two have operated the team and efforts as a
mutual effort since then. Marcus McBain has strong experience working with factory
dissertations, manufacturer tire testing, magazine
performance articles, broadcast
interviews, and team management, while Kelsey is a former professional Clear
Channel Arenacross series rider as well as a champion motocross rider. The team is
a very capable and potent combination. Enclosed
is a detailed history of RPS, its accomplishments, and its riders.
& Development Strategy
It is important for the racers and
sponsors of the RPSRaceTeam.com effort that racers finish races and finish well
so that maximum exposure is provided (for the sponsors and riders) as well a
standard of consistent excellence. RPS focuses on training riders to styles of
the famous greats of roadracing and how Marcus McBain raced over 20 years ago,
which focuses on using the lower body to drive motorcycle through a turn. In addition,
McBain custom builds the shocks and forks to provide the most versatile
suspension for the rider. Engines are only lightly modified to keep costs down
and ensure reliability. Lastly, Marcus McBain mentors the riders on the decision
making process and racing so that the best results are attained with the lowest
cost to the sponsors and team.
The result of the teams racing strategy
is that the seven RPS team riders have lined up for 546 races and
have had less than 6 crashes during those races from 2005 until present. All
this while winning 130 races, scoring 198 podium positions, and
winning over 25 regional titles & national titles. This is a phenomenal
achievement and it underscores how “doing it right” is safer and more cost
