Report Rossi Sticking Out His Leg - Why? in Cornering and Techniques Posted August 11, 2009 Same comment from a Bike Magazine interview of Rossi. It helped him brake better. The photo was of him with his right foot off the peg. Same interview he felt putting wieght on the bars until turn in helped him stop faster too. Also on acceleration he used ouside peg pressure to stabilize the bike with a bit of extra traction, and inside peg pressure to reduce traction as desired to help steer. That made me smile as a couple took me to task in the distant past for thinking the same thing of peg pressures. The magazine tried the foot thing and didn't feel they got much braking aid. Wayne Rainey and Mick Doohan had some comments to go with Rossi's. Short, nice read.
