”You were just cruising” I hear the comment after the training. Yes so I were ”cruising”. Do the things here and there with full speed and cruise between. There is no point of doing 5 full laps just 2 days before the race. Most important is to get good feeling. At this point you are not changing anythin in your physics. At least not to make anything better. ”Jump the first, just let go”. No I don't jump. I have tried to first for freaking over 100 times. I haven't got it then, I don't get it now. There is no point to start to change anything at this moment. Just have to accept that the technique I have at the moment is the one I will have in the race. Even if I would get the jump now, in the race it's always different. In race I want to just concentrate to be fast, not if I get techinque right or not. In the race rider is most like to use the techinque that comes without thinking about it.
These matters takes us to control of your mind. It's really important to be ware of what you can do and what you can't. Limits need to be pushed and accidents happens even when you are being smart. But more accidents seems to come when worrying about what others say you should do or taking preassure what others are doing. It doesn't matter what the others are doing. Also it just doesn't matter what position I'm getting in the race. Many people from many diffirent countries has told me that you need to win. Of course that gives me preassure, until I remember that those worlds don't count. I'm doing my best to ride my perfect lap. That's only thing I can do. That where the others are going and what they are doing doesn't matter to me at all. Also what others say doesn't matter at all. The thing what matters is that I sit on the gate, audience is full, and I'm calm and enjoying. That's what helps me most to get my perfect lap.
