Throughout Day Two of MV’s Elite Rider Training Camp the eight riders in attendance were taught about Officials/Rules/Flags, various styles of Coaches, Sports Psychology and Social Media.
The day, however, started off with another visit from Stephen Mion for another gruelling morning training session with the riders really put through the wringer once again, up before the sun was out this morning.
The riders backed up a tough training session yesterday morning with an even tougher one today as Steve brought out some different equipment and created a tough circuit for the riders to go through.
At the end of the day most of the riders had as one of their “things they learnt” as Steve showing them how to use a TRX/web trainer. A piece of equipment that has been included in the packs that MV provides for the riders in attendance, which Steve sources for them.
Chris Gray took the reins after the training session and led them through things that every rider should know regarding motorcycle sport: the rules.
Jake Gogol saying that we “learnt just how important it is to actually know the rules of the sport” with Kasey Major and Ryley Oakes both said that they “learnt how to read the rules and the MoMS.”
Chris then took the discussion down a Sports Psychology path, explaining to the riders how to focus on the good and not the bad, or how to relax at the start line and the next corner.
Nick Graham saying that we “learnt about the psychology of racing and about being prepared.”
The talk about different coaching styles had the riders thinking about whether the coach made all the decisions for the rider or if there was split decision making or if the coach left it entirely up to the rider and which was best for them.
Lochie Amos said that we “learnt how we will need different trainers at different points in time during our career.”
Chris also mentioned the dangers of Social Media from a career perspective and how riders should be really vigilant with what they are putting on social media and what they are allowing to be put on their social media.
Chloe Miles saying that we “learnt how sponsors can already know things about you and have an opinion of you based off of social media.”
This topic also mixed in with Sport Psychology and using social media, or phones in general, while at events.
The third and final day of MV’s Elite Rider Training Camp will focus on Sponsorship, Media and Professional Development with Lee Hogan leading the way, plus a couple of extra guests!
