Joseph DeGano, MX Coach - Founder**
MX Coach, has united the four major disciplines of motocross into one motocross specific coaching program. Mental Training & Development, Motocross Technique, Athletic Training, and Sports Nutrition. DeGano is a certified Gary Bailey motocross technique instructor and a former professional motocross racer. His emphasis on the mental training and development of a racer permeates his entire program. What makes MX Coach distinctly coaching-and not training or instruction-is the obvious integration of the four disciplines. MX Coach was founded in 2001 and is headquartered in Eagle, Idaho. DeGano is also the coach of rookie sensation Ben Evans.
