Hi everyone im new to this forum and biking in general so any help and advice is much appreciated. *I started my mod 1 training yesterday and I was really enjoying it until midway through the afternoon I dropped the bike during the figure of 8. After this I seemed to lose all confidence and I started to have real problems during the slalom and figure of 8. I put it down to nerves so I called it a day and went home to relax. Came back this morning and my test was at 11.30 but I dropped the bike twice during practice so me and my instructor decided it was best I don't take my test. As you can imagine I am devastated, is there any advice or tips on how I can get past this mental block or do I just concede that maybe im just not cut out to be a biker? I am still really comfortable doing the high speed swerve and emergency stop it is just the slow speed exercises which have me in fear. Any help or opinions will be more than welcome.*

Thanks in advance.*

Don't lose your confidence use some trail braking while doing figure 8's use enough throttle to carry you thru the 8's and trail braking (not too much) to keep your speed so you won't go down.
