So, out at the weekend again practicing some pointy downy stuff - we're talking simple (really simple) singletrack. Little bit of rock, the odd root and other than that just a bit bumpy. And, if I'm being honest it wasn't even that steep!!
But, at the top of this (and any hill) I get the most terrible nerves (sheer panic is closer to the mark) and its hampering my ability to get down safely. I know the theory - stay loose, look forward not down, weight over the back a bit etc but just can't put it into practice.
Anyone got any tips? I'm going to swap the SPD's out for some flats so I can get my feet on and off the pedals quickly and I'm more than happy to repeat repeat repeat but just need to get over the hump so to speak.
