The Australian BMX Museum has put together a short video series that delves into the mind of champions from the Australian BMX Hall of Fame, trying to get a better understanding of what goes into a race mentally and emotionally.
In this new miniseries, Cameron Mitchell from the Australian BMX Hall of Fame and Australian BMX Museum, sits down with a handful of hall of fame inductees in an attempt to find out what goes through the mind of these racers during high pressure moments in their career.
There is a reason why these riders have excelled and why others have not, this series revealing the preparation and mental process involved in racing at the top!
Check out the first interview below with Jamie Hales, the inaugural Australian BMX Hall of Fame inductee who took out the first official national championships in 1981. Hales was Australia’s first BMX icon as he featured on national television and even Weet-Bix packets.
Stay tuned to BMX Hall of Fame socials and BMXA socials as Mitchell sits down with Leigh Egan and Sam Willoughby in the coming weeks!
