  1. Hi Cobie. Do you mean braking, leaning on full brake, then trailing off?
  2. Thanks for all the answers everyone, that was very helpful.
  3. In a corner which has a slight double apex, like corner 3 at Streets of Willow Springs, do you roll off the throttle at all? I can't quite recall what was said at the school. I don't recall rolling off, but I totally might have.
  4. I just attended the two day camp (level 1 and 2) at Willow Springs, which was phenomenal. I was amazed at how much faster I got in two days. A question about trail braking: In class, we looked at a graph of racers' braking timing. In the graph, the onset of braking to peak pressure was very fast, almost instantaneous, and the release (if I recall correctly) was about two seconds long. For the technique, I believe we were told to brake, and then release braking gradually as we leaned the bike and got in on line (so the forks only compress once, first for the braking, which trades off for the compression of the turn). Of course once the bike is leaned and online, we roll on the throttle, smoothly, evenly and constantly, and I think we were told that there is no overlap in brake release and throttle roll on. But with the quick turn technique, it would seem that getting the bike online is completed in less than 2 seconds. I could be underestimating the time it takes to lean the bike and get it fully online, and I know they qualified this technique as 'when appropriate', so maybe it only applies to corners which would require about 2 seconds to get online? If any coaches or students can provide clarification, I'd appreciate it!
