Becoming the best at any sport is obviously really hard! It’s not just about being the fittest, strongest or having the most skill – the mental side of it also makes up a massive portion of the pie. Maya Atkinson, who has won the junior British downhill championships twice, knows this and uses it to help train, learn new skills, and become the best she can possibly be.
Maya gives a great insight into the mentality that has helped her in the sport and rides some great trails in South Wales. Maya has previously won the junior British downhill championships twice, competed in EWS and world cups, she will be moving up to the elite category this coming season, competing for a new team.
