Using Mental Toughness Strategies to Stay Composed
In this week’s sports psychology podcast, mental game of sports expert Dr. Patrick Cohn interviews Andre Bekker, a professional cyclist and previously ranked #1 in the age category 50+ for the 70.3 Triathlon long distance.
A big challenge that triathletes face when on the bike leg is that they tend to worry about who is around them and very often get irritated with another person on the bike leg that keeps slowing down or passing them.
How do you have that composure when there is another biker on the bike leg trying to get into your head?
BEKKER: “I cannot think of a single race where that has not happened. That is one of the biggest challenges for people on the bike leg…”
It is very important to have those mental toughness tools that help you go back to being calm.
You may think to yourself, “What am I doing? I have a race plan.”
It is important to have those mental toughness tools to be able to completely ignore the competitor and focus on your own race.

“Yes the video series was excellent and very helpful. I appreciate that you give usable information and don’t “bait” people. Much respect for you for that. I’ve been cycling for a few years and joined a race team last year. I moved from a cat-5 to a cat-3 my first year and now am racing masters Cat-1,2,3 here in central California.”
~Blake James, Cyclist
“We used your mental training information on how to kick perfectionism and my daughters had their best meet ever. Thanks for your help.”
