I talked to a friend about moving up on the inside of the pack before a turn. You know, accelerate up when the accordian is slowing.
He says, " Be careful on those inside line moves, though. I too try that, but I looked into the etiquette, first. Apparently, you are supposed to be in position 10m before the riders you hope to be inside of commit to the turn (i.e., start leaning). Try to be in their peripheral vision, as well, like almost beside them, so they know you are there, too. Sometimes they force you into the curb because they simply don't know you are there.
I think the same rule applies to F1 racing. Once someone starts turning, you can't come in into their inside. You have to stake your claim to the inside line before the other driver commits to the turn."
Any one have an official slant on this?
