Episode three of ‘The YT Mob World Tour’ shows pro rider Angel Suarez, mentor and talent developer Martin Whiteley and the crew make the trip to Cerro Bayo. The mountain located 9 kilometers / 5.5 miles from the town Villa La Angostura and overlooking Nahuel Huapi Lake has its summit at an altitude of 1,782m / 5,846ft and a great variety of trails to offer; perfect conditions for the second Young Talent Camp. The beauty of this unique talent program is that the Mob also heads to regions of the world where there is no World Cup racing going on, where talent is not observed and unearthed on a daily basis and therefore gives the raw talent in these regions an opportunity to send it down trails and shine on a stage they have never accessed before.
The third of seven episodes talks about the mental side of racing and especially how important focus is when it comes to racing and talent. How is focus in racing defined? How does it affect development and results? Whiteley’s former protégés such as Brook MacDonald, Neko Mulally and Greg Minnaar enrich the episode with their take on the mental side of the game.
