My biggest weakness is cornering. Found this one particularly helpful

Early in the season had a race, mostly on grass, that gave me plenty of opportunity to implement the cornering techniques from the video. Worked well.

Couple minutes of my favorite ride video. This is from the "Death Ride." If you camp out on the side of the highway and start out early enough, your reward is sunrise at the top of Monitor Pass and 15 minutes or so of a screaming 50 mph descent in cool mountain air and brilliant morning colors
