Help With Making Myself Do It!

I've been through level 4 with you. I'm mad at myself and am not sure how to correct my problem. At level 4, Laguna turn 2, I missed my turn point and ran into the gravel. Since returning from school it has happened twice more. I don't feel like I have any fear, but something happens and I think "I can't make the corner" and I stand up the bike and hit the brakes and run off the track (Road). Trackless in Hawaii. Why can't I make myself make the turn, I know the bike can?

Hi R1200S,

 

I'll chime in here for a moment. The first question I would be asking if coaching you was how is the entry speed? Is it too high? Were the roads new roads, are you pushing yourself a bit on unknown roads? Or if known roads, back to entry speed for amoment. I have found riders work on going faster, and think that 2-3 mph faster is nothing. A top rider, if already in the speed zone that kept him interested, would maybe have 6-8 grades in there, between the totally fine, compfortable pace, and going to fast. We have often seen this at the track. Is this in the area for you?

 

Best,

Cobie
