Dr. JRich on Mental Prep for BMX

We hear all the time that BMX Racing is a largely mental sport–once you have trained your physical body up to the level of a top performer. In this week’s Pro Gate Training and Coaching series, Dr. Jason Richardson is on call for a Podcast interview to help us understand a bit more about “mentals,” as they’re called in the business.

JRich also gives us some immediately-actionable intel on things you can do to sharpen your mental game going in to a big race weekend. He also give some pointers to parents on the kinds of “coaching” that may be better left unsaid when trying to get top performance out of your rider.
