MARCH RIDING TIP
March Riding Tip: Braking:
This is a shot from a corner clinic, where I'm racing down a long straight and coming into a tight s-turn. I can come in fast, as I'm confident that I can stop in time because I know I have 3 key elements to bring my bike down to a speed where I can make a clean corner. 1- the front brake which is around 70% of my stopping power, 2- rear brake, that I apply with just enough pressure that i don't lock the rear end up, 3- engine braking, when I let the throttle off and/or shift down, I have engine braking that works in a subtle but effective way to slow me down. When I use the combination of all 3, I have maximum stopping power that allows me to come in fast but smooth. Practice this on a section of track over and over, and you'll get a better feel of how to do this on a high level. See the video on my Facebook page:
