I'm not a fan of any turn that requires braking. You have to consider the turn itself and then the course conditions and then how fast some one might be taking it on an attack. I'm a good bike handler as well but braking (whether manual oy by FG drivetrain resistance) is an inherent hazard, esp. if you're in the pack.

The best solution? Attack! You can take technical sections faster as a solo rider and it's safer too
