Racer's get paid to use what is on the bike. And often, though it looks the same, it's nothing like what you or I might purchase. Forks may have different internals, custom valving, frames custom made with different angles than stock. Maybe her brakes are stock, maybe not. And I'm sure her brakes are taken care of by a pro mechanic!
Not knocking the brakes, just that I wouldn't put too much credence in what pros run on their bikes.
