I'm becoming increasingly frustrated with my riding. Over the last few months my fitness has improved, I'm getting faster, and confidence is coming along with it. However, I'm now expecting myself to hit everything as hard and as fast as possible, and when I can't, I'm feeling rather annoyed with myself.
I competed in my first dh race in April, finished well down the field, but really enjoyed myself. Also just completed my first xc race, again really enjoyed it, finishing in the middle of my class (50 strong field). The xc result didn't bother me so much, as it's mostly down to fitness than raw bike riding talent, but the dh race result did. I felt I could go faster on the day, but only in my head, obviously
Anyone else getting stuck in a similar rut? I'm slightly worried I'll start to lose sight of the enjoyment.
