    The bike falls under me?

    Hello,

    I have been riding for about 6 months and I started doesing DJ about 2 months ago... I went to some jumps today and when I get a lot of speed on a bigger jump it feels like the bike is falling down and I am staying up in the air. So when I land I am standing strait up with my feet barely on the pedals... Is this just because I might have a fear of catching a lot of air? Has anyone had this happen to them?

    Sounds like you're just riding off the lip. Pull up a little, and tuck the bike up towards you in the air.

    You're probably rigid as a block of wood up there, follow the bike or let it follow you, don't be stiff, relax. Pull up, point the toes down and tuck the bike in.
