Where is my confidence?!

Recommended Posts

Alrighty, I've been riding for a while now, but I had to quit for a year or so because of a pretty nice crash...but yeah, I'm finally back on the track, but every time I get to the big doubles i always chicken out. What should I do? should i approach the jump any differently then a table top?

seat time after a good get off always helps me out.

i will ride till i get frustrated at myself for not jumping what i know i can.

it would also help to follow someone over it, that you know will clear it easily.

then once i do it that way, i usually own it.

give it some time, dont be in a rush to risk a crash. its all about fun....

What should I do?

Sounds, to me, like Dr. Evil stole your mojo Mr. Powers! LOL

All jokes aside, I don't think confidence is the issue. You are missing the drive, energy, and motivation that you once had. Get your mojo back, and confidence will follow!! :lol::p
