The best motocross racers & enduro riders invest in motocross training – both physical (technique), AND mental (mindset).  Like any sport, these two components go hand in hand like french fries & ketchup.. heavy metal & black ripped jeans.. Jeremy McGrath & Honda.  If you focus only on technique you can become a great rider – no doubt. However, the riders who learn technique and also train their minds to become mentally tough to withstand the pressure laid on during competition time, are the riders you find at the top of podiums and winning championships. 

This stuff isn’t new.  Our awareness of the fact that the elite athletes of the world have superior physical AND mental strengths working in unison, has been around ever since Richard Simmons was discovered by the American public.  The key to unlocking your true potential and vastly improving your dirt bike racing skills & competitive edge lies beneath your ability to firstly recognize you need help with developing your mind-game, and secondly, actually doing the work needed.

Now, like you, I need work in this area and am certainly no expert in sports psychology.  So I’ve asked the legendary Dr Patrick Cohn – from Peak Performance Sports – to share a smidgen of his invaluable knowledge on sports psychology, mental fortitude, motocross training, attitude.. and what it takes to be a champion motocross or enduro racer.  I held an exclusive interview with him especially for my DBTP visitors – YOU!  So make sure you listen in by watching the YouTube clip below.
