EXIT STRATEGY

OK, so you’ve got yourself into a corner and smashed the apex. What happens now?
Now’s the time when things start to get interesting...

Riding

A rider can ride any line he or she can see. That sounds simple enough, right? But while I can define all of the basics of lines in a 20-minute technical briefing and get 100 percent agreement on each point from every rider in the room, something goes very wrong between there and real life out on the Tarmac.

Lines are definite and real, observable by anyone who is looking. Where did the rider enter the corner? Where did his tyres pass over the pavement through the turn? Where did he finish it? These points are not subject to speculation; they can be seen, videoed and plotted precisely. Because such wild variations occur over and over, however, it is obvious that the rider making the errors cannot see them. Only one out of ten riders feels confident that he has a ‘natural’ sense of line. Therefore, translating the sense of line into action is something with which riders struggle. It all comes down to space and time.
