new guy here, been riding for a bit but nothing major. ok, about crashing or possibly avoiding it.
There is that moment when flying down a trail and your approaching the turn and ya just seem to take it too wide and the next thing ya know is your shooting through a field with rocks, tall grass, holes etc, your bouncing all over the place and it becomes apperent that you just may lose control...
for me, I freaked or rather froze up and went down in a less than glorious crash. The problem is, my buddy was with me and watched it happen. He swears that it didnt seem that bad and I could have taken control.
Now I have that crash-phobia when on trails which kills the whole joy of the ride because I hold back, always lagging the pack.
Any tips on control or getting confidence up to ride better?
I love the ride but the wussy inside holds me back.
