By now you’ve probably heard about Nick Jonas’s big crash on the Olympic Dreams special on NBC. The Olympic Dreams special pitted the Jonas Brothers against each other in three Olympic sports with BMX Racing being one of them. The brothers only had one day to train for their race on a BMX track……..That was the first mistake lol!! During the race Nick had little control over his bike and when he pedaled out the first turn, the back came from under him.
It was cool to see Alise Willoughby as their coach but there’s not enough one day coaching in the world that’s gonna get an adult with no experience ready for a race. She called it when she said “I feel like the heat of the battle could get the best of one of them”. And On A Side Note, Alise should’ve felt those vibes going into her Semi’s at this years Olympics when in the heat of the battle, Alise took both herself and Saya Sakakibara out.
As you can see in the behind the scenes footage below, these guy’s weren’t ready. They should’ve have them training for a month prior to filming before they raced. But it was good to know they did more training than what was shown on the actual show. You can see how squirrelly the brothers were just standing up and pedaling the bikes especially when they were going between the cones.
I would love to see a legit, full BMX racing TV series done with a few athletes and celebs. Hopefully this may lead to one. Big shout out to the Jonas Brothers for giving BMX racing a try.
