Dirty Dozen with Nathan Watson
Dirt Hub: Do you have a Pre-Race Play list you listen too, and if so name a couple of tracks that are on it?
Nathan: I’d love to have an interesting answer to this… but nopeee. Never listen to music before a race!
DH: When was the last time you cried?
Nathan: I wouldn’t call it crying, but I had a few tears in my eyes when they told us we were on the podium at MXON!
DH: What is your favourite inspirational quote?
Nathan: If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.
DH: Do you have any weird suspicions or pre-race rituals?
Nathan: Yeah, I put all my left side kit on first (left sock before right… left knee brace before right etc. Haha)
DH: What drives you most to get up in the morning and go training?
Nathan: I don’t need any drive because I just enjoy doing what I do! (Most of the time anyway haha)
DH: If you didn’t race what sport would you play or take part in?
Nathan: I do all sorts of sports, I love doing any sport! But I’m not that good at any of them so I’d deffo have to get a normal job.
DH: What is your biggest Phobia?
DH: Who is your biggest sporting idol and why?
Nathan: Nobody springs to mind reading that question… I‘ve never really had an idol. But if I had to say someone now it would have to be Ross Edgley… the stuff he’s done is unbelievable.
DH: Where do you see yourself in five years time?
Nathan: I would love to be back racing motocross and still doing the beach racing over the winter.
DH: What is your all-time favourite movie?
Nathan: Dumb and Dumber
DH: Who has had the biggest impact on your career?
Nathan: My Parents! Especially my old man ‘Rambo’… he’s done some graft for us over the years haha. Wouldn’t be where I am without them.
DH: What is your philosophy on life?
Nathan: I don’t really go by one.. but I’m definitely a positive person. I’d have to say something like ‘Appreciate it and enjoy yourself!’
