I took the BRC a couple of months ago and obviously we talked a lot about Target Fixation. At that time I thought: "Well, that makes sense and sure looks easy to control! No sweat".
Oh well... not exactly!
Right after the BRC, I bought my bike and started riding - Left curve, right curve... outside-inside-outside... until I faced my worst enemy: Target Fixation.
Yeap! I SAW the gravel on the road, I HIT the gravel on the road!
Luckily, besides a few bruises on my knee, my ego was really the one crashed down. Well, that and my baby bike.
Right after the crash, I felt ok and still very confident to ride back home and lick my wounds.
But now, a couple of weeks later, it seams that I forgot everything I learned, and I cannot set my mind free of al types of situations where I can have an accident.
Basically I'm not having fun anymore :-(
I would truly apreciate if you could share some experiences related to this? Am I just those type of people that has no 'talent' to ride?
I am soooo frustated right now....
