"The first time I won an overall on the ATV was in 1991," said Hawk. "It took me another year to win another one, but after I did, I never quit. The same thing happened on the bike. When I first started, I used to sit on the line thinking, 'Maybe I could win, but I probably won't.' But I won an overall in 2001, and then I won again a year later. I used to think too much about what position I was in, what suspension setting we had, what tire we were using. I needed to just forget that, ride like I know how to ride and maybe we can win a championship. It's worked out awesome."
