nose casing something and eating dirt

that should never happen if you bail. if you are scarred and freaze in the air and just hold on is when you can case front tire and get hurt. get use to bailing so you won't be scared of that

I still pull a deadsailor from time to time, I fear nosing over off a huge DH booter more than nose casing it.

I don't know what I fear to be honest, maybe it's trying jumps bigger than I've done before... or gaps between jumps.

There is a huge jump with pathway in the middle then a transition landing, I'll hit it at full speed and not be scared, but the same jump with a gap in the middle I probably wouldn't even try.

Not sure why, the only time I've ever really gotten hurt riding was when I was little and didn't know how to take off from a jump and I nose dived.

Now with big jumps I find I can't keep my legs extended and they suck up the jump DH racing style... Frown I'm not good at getting huge air. Better at keeping my bike on the ground Haha.

medium/big doubles.. don't know why, the gap is a mental thing. But knowing you can't **** up is a lot of pressure.

1. breaking my bars and eating the stem (dude mentioned up earlier)
2. rims tacoing on me
3. north shore and other skinny ladder bridge stuff with large gaps and a high fall

I worry that the kick wont be right, sometimes you just get dirty vibes off jumps, but most of the time its just in your head

just drifting in air lol it happends to me because of kicks that are in poor conditions and also going 2 fast and land to close to the next jump and not have time to reposition my self. it happend to my buddy his chest went right on the stem he didnt ride the whole day after that.

breaking myself. that would suck, cuz it can be really, really hard to find replacement parts, if not impossible.

i would have to say crashing in some way that joints like elbows and knees bend back the wrong way. it just looks wrong.

yeah and the handlebars breaking and busting out your teeth would suck but i don't really think about that.
