BRENTON Naylor hopes to take away a lot from next week’s Elite Rider Training Camp from Sept. 21-23.
BRENTON Naylor is a rider who is always thinking about his goals, always tweaking them depending on how his season is progressing, and 2015 has been a very solid year for the 18-year-old.
“For 2015, I set goals to just be as fit as I could be so that my fitness wouldn’t hold me back for the year,” Brenton said.
“As I started the race year, I was continuously re-adjusting my goals. The first Victorian Off-Road Championships round at Pakenham I got my first podium which made me realise that I had the ability to go better than I expected. From there on I have set higher goals and I keep on reviewing them,” Brenton added.
It isn’t just his goals that Brenton is continuously thinking about and adjusting, he plans everything to a tee and tries to be well organised heading into races.
“Time management is critical, making sure that everything is done well ahead of an event and race days are organised. Nutrition to last the event has also been a key focus, especially if I’m taking part in multi-day events,” Brenton said.
The planning has been working well for him; he currently sits in second position in the U19s B Class at the VORC and is third in the MCRCV Club Championships.
It’s not just his racing that Brenton is focused on however, he is also keen on continuing his employment in the motorcycle industry after school.
“Working at All-star KTM has let me share my passion with customers and help them in whatever discipline of bikes they are interested in. I’ve learnt a lot about the industry and hope to find a new and exciting full time opportunity when I finish VCE this year,” Brenton said.
When Brenton attends the MV Elite Rider Training Camp next week, fitness will still be high on his agenda like it was at the beginning of the year as he looks to build for 2016.
“I’m looking forward to seeing how my current fitness plan compares to the MV Elite Rider Training Camp expectations. I’m also interested in the sponsorship training and how to better support my sponsors and how to create better value for sponsors,” he continued.
“My plans for next season will include competing at the VORC and Hattah once again. I’m also thinking about having a go at the Australian Off-Road Championships if I can obtain adequate support.”
MV’s Elite Rider Training Camp takes place in Melbourne next week from September 21-23.
