Learn motocross and auto racing mental training tips and strategies.
In today’s psychology of racing session, I offer mental racing tips to help beginner racers get into the right frame of mind before races.
I answer the following mental training game of racing question:
“For beginner racers, what is the mindset that they should enter the race with? What daily mental exercises should they do to prepare for racing?”
Preparing for first motocross or auto race is important for any racer, both mentally and physically. Many racers may not know what kind of mindset to be in before a big race.
The key is for racers to perform the same in practice and in races.
Before a race, throw out any expectations and maintain a stable level of racing confidence. Focus on the process and avoid thinking about the results. Have a race plan and review your strategy before races.
