    This sums it up.

    I'm sure the commissaires spent time discussing it after the race. They may even have fined him 50 Euros.

    I think that you can remove a lot of the luck with working on the right skills. As Lee Trevino used to say: "the more I practice, the luckier I get"

    Classic mistake: scalloping the turn.

    Watch (beginning @ 8:05) as the riders make several micro-turns or adjustments as they begin the turn. (you have to look beyond the camera-shake) This...

    Tip: When a crash occurs ahead of you (or behind you for that matter), don't look at it. Look for an escape or something soft.

    Newer racers tend to look at the crash and grab the brakes.

    No, I never said there were fewer crashes in a P12. I think there, but what I said was that their crashes usually involve one or two riders. Versus a Cat 4 crash that will generally involve many.

    Crash avoidance instead of crash fear.

    The other crash thread became stale and off topic, so I thought I'd kickstart a different conversation.

    Everyone talks about crashing, but few ever talk about crash avoidance skills. If they do,...

    I don't know if there's a way to 'entice' riders to bridge up, per se, other than to just go hard and show them that you're serious. They're usually checking the horsepower that goes up the road. If...

    Longer shorts, why?
