#!markdown I'm quite strong in the self preservation gene. I also get certain mental blocks sometimes at some crux moves that often aren't that hard but just look sketchy. Things I've ridden but for some reason I get there and stop. This is a mental skill where you suppress the fear and I guess some would quickly analyze the move, see the line and consequences and ride it. In a similar vein, if I crash I often go back to analyze what I did wrong so that I don't have an irrational fear like some people do. Someone I know once said, "I have more respect for a rider that looks and decides to walk something than the rider that just goes and rag dolls down some feature."
