His very first bronze medal with a perfect double backflip one-handed nac – and all the hard work paid off! Down under at Australia’s Gold Coast, learn more about Harry Bink and what happened on the eve of X Games 2021. This is “The Art of Focus” because it’s about being “most comfortable when you’re uncomfortable.”

The Back Story

In the lead up to the 2021 Summer X Games, we were commissioned to produce a content piece on Harry Bink’s journey. While he is renowned as one of the world’s best FMX riders, he was yet to win an X Games medal. To break the mould, we took the approach of delving deeper into the mental approach he was taking since he was about to attempt some of the highest risk tricks possible.  To achieve this we focused on many of the elements outside of the training compound.

This piece is completely written, produced, directed, filmed and edited by our in house team of creatives.
