today i was at a skate park on my bike (hardtail) with a mate. i go to skate parks very rarly so im not very good at doing things and i dont really have much confidence.
anyway, i was challenged to do a 'death box' - which is pretty much a 4ft quarter pipe, flat on top and then a gentle slope down. i can take a run up from a flat bank and i know all i have to do is just pedel until i reach the quarter pipe then i will get over the 'death box'. but i cant bring myself to do it. i spent ages at the top of the flat bank, just looking at what i had to do, but the more time i spent up there the more scared i got of it. several times i set of as if i was going to do it then slammed on my brakes and pulled out at the last minute.
What i want to know is does anybody else get this problem and how do they overcome it? is there any special techniques? Or am i just being a little girl?
any replys welcome
