Ms. Namita Nayyar: You are youngest female to ever hold the ABA National #1 Women’s Pro title at 15 years of age.You are the First female to win all three Girls Division classifications that have existed in the ABA. You have held the No. 1 Amateur Girl, No. 1 Amateur Girl Cruiser, and No. 1 Women’s Pro titles. You are the only female to ever win the peer voted Golden Crank Award for Rookie Pro of the Year and have the most wins of any female in USA BMX Women’s Pro history (82 National Wins). What responsibility these awards bestow upon you in your future efforts and activities in the field of BMX racing?
Ms. Alise Post: All of these achievements have been great honors and results of hard work. I think that having earned all of these honors has definitely raised expectations from others in my results for the rest of my career. For me, it gives me a glimpse at the potential I have within the sport. If I continue to work hard and unlock all of my talent, I should not only be able to leave a lasting impression on women’s BMX, but hopefully break the mold for the younger generations to be even better and see more possibilities and opportunities come their way.
I believe I am part of the generation in BMX where we are seeing the biggest growths and changes in the sport, so my hope is to inspire younger girls and riders to work to be their best, and hopefully be just as good of a good role model off the track for them. I think the more successful you are on the bike, the more responsible you become in being a positive impact on the sport and paving a path for the younger generations to look to and aspire to be better than.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: Who has been your greatest influencer and motivator in your success in the field of your career in competitive BMX racing ?
Ms. Alise Post: Growing up I always looked up to the Redline rider before me, Kim Hayashi. She was small like me, but rode like the boys and took risks and pushed the women’s side of the sport to be better. However, I would say the greatest influencer and motivator for me has been my boyfriend, Sam Willoughby. He races BMX for Australia and is the most dedicated and fierce competitor I know. He pushes everyday to get more out of himself and every bit of his success has been earned and well deserved. That positive influence along with the fact that he believes in me and backs me every single day motivates me to push myself.
