Hello, Well I I have been cycling for a while now, and have recently decided to try a race, most likely a crit. The one problem I have is cornering. Not to long ago I went out on a training ride, one with a lot of turns, and took one of the turns a little to fast and sharp. Crashed!! I ripped my cycling shorts, have scars on my legs, broke my helmet, bent the cranks, handle bar, brake levers, and broke a couple other parts. So as you can imagine it was pretty bad. Now I am extremely scared of going around corners fast on my bike. Now on top of that I just purchased a new bike so I am even more terrified of doing that again. But I know if I don't, I will never be able to participate in a crit. So how do I eliminate my fear? Anyone else have a similar incident, how did you recover?
