Hokie, I have the sulution for you. Find a small, yet pretty safe jump, and get behind a fast rider and follow him over it, but remember when approching the jump maintain the same speed as he is. When I go to a track and there is a big double, are something that you need to hit perfectly, I jump in behind a pro rider and just follow him over it, because I know he is going to jump just the right distance. Remember a safe jump. After you do that one, go to alittle bigger one and so on until you are covenced that you can hit them on your own at the right speed. I went to a Gary Bailey school one time and he said everyone would do all the jumps if they thought they could make it, so he had us follow a pro and it works like a charm.
