Cool You never know when the camera is rollin...

So I'm filming a student on Sunday and just as I'm about done Mark flies by. I'd been seeing Mark running around ECR all day, regulating level 3 and now was my chance to do a lil regulating myself... You know.. put the rookie in his place.

I couldn't make quick work of Mark like I wanted to. But he made pretty quick work of himself.

rookie question....

Was the "pop up" at 0:50 a save or is that a quick transition? Looks to me like he lost the rear and had to transition at the same time.
Or maybe it was the body movement that caused the tire to slip?

...and I assume he's alright after the grass slide?

Was that target fixation for just a second at the one minute mark? Looked like your line straightened for just a second right when he dumped it.

That's a quick right, left.

Yea.. whenever someone crashes right in front of you it's kind of hard not to check up a bit... but if I was really fixated on him I would have followed him out there. I actually stayed on the line.. just rolled out of it a bit.

Bet it sure didn't help, looked like he was decellerating through the turn and bike didn't want to stay up?

In for a learning opportunity.

I definately didn't mean anything by asking.

I'm sure it's a freak out when it happens that close. I probably would have followed him off.

It's a good lesson for those that want to ride track and go fast all the time to see that even the seasoned professionals can target fixate, they just recover from it a whole lot smoother.

Howard said they watched it in slo-mo in the ARC class and the sealer was the cause.

Marks famous for the day, not like he wanted though

Not in ARC. I never blame the sealer. Howard may have come to that conclusion on his own.

Not really. This guy Mark probably picked his bike up as soon as he stopped sliding. On a lot of public streets, something pysically stops you from sliding, fast. I've wrecked on both the street and the track. I'll take a track accident 100 times out of 100.

Mark has really picked up the pace, he's making impressive strides in his riding. Looks like the rear was searching, to me...
