2010 marked the third year for the McGrath Powersports Motocross clinic held at a local race track. In partnership with a riders club, the store hosted a teaching clinic for all age groups and abilities. With the help of 10 local veteran and A-class motorcycle and ATV riders, the store instructed students in such areas as the starting gate, cornering, jumps, rhythm and whoop areas. With four designated sections and constant rotation, students were given one-on-one coaching along with many opportunities to practice and perfect their riding styles. The clinic attracted 71 riders and students and served lunch to over 250 people.
