Default Motion Sickness After Riding

Hi everyone,
I'm hoping someone out there has some ideas on this. I started riding last year. Whenever I ride I end up with REALLY bad motion sickness. Bad enough that I end up flat on my back in my car for quite a while. Here is the strange part for me, I am an avid mountain biker, road riders, I XC-Ski, snowshoe, and downhill skied.
I've focused on keeping my eyes downhill today, wore wristbands, but still got really sick.
Any ideas??

It could be altitude sickness, not necessarily motion sickness, maybe dehydration? You drink enough fluids when you ride?
Take yourself to higher places.

Well, one thing I said to my friend, after eating lunch and hitting a jump in the park, was " Contents may have shifted during flight."

I think it might be solved by perhaps focusing a bit further away, just like the sailors who look at the horizon to overcome seasickness. Also, as the previous posters have noticed, staying hydrated helps.

I got a little dizzy once when I was going down an easier run in the woods and I was staring at the trees that were going by thinking, "It's such a pretty day. Look at those pretty trees. Is that a pretty bird? I feel pretty sick..."

Didn't help that I had a stuffed pepper for lunch about 10 mins earlier...
