just FYI, the rear wheel spinning helps keep the bike stabilized even when you're in an endo position.

It could have ended very bad ... he did a good job recovering. Better to put in the gravel than go flying over the bars and have the bike chase you down the track.

I love the critics.. That's an epic o- moment that many people here probably haven't experienced.

This dude has a miraculous save and still gets criticized

The only "critic" was a friend of his making a comment in jest (I assume). I don't see anyone being negative towards the rider or his skill level.

Paul has a serious set f skills, I've seen that guy pull some that made my add hole pucker. It's easy to critique and say what he should have done, but just be glad you where not the one having to think so quickly in that up situation! I applaud Paul for pulling it back in, and making a better situation out of a realy bad one. Good job Paul, that's was grabbing the bull by the horns literally

I know Paul and seen him ride , that dudes a bad mf er and is highly skilled. I'm sure he knows Umayr is just playing and so was I. I'm glad he didn't get seriously injured and it just goes to show that it could happen to any of us regardless of how long we been riding or doing track days.

I acutally do use rear brake often in that corner. At this point, I was not and would have been usesless. No offense taken by any of the comments. Except for Umayrs, but I think anything he says is stupid as anyways. I would have rather crashed this weekend then next weekend in the race. Soon as i hit the gravel I let go of the front brakes and locked up the rear. Almost saved it. lol. ALMOST.... I was coming in super hot, was probably turning around a 41-42 pace and if I hadnt hit the front harder, I probably would have taken out the rider in front. (Arkansasdave). Glad I managed not to do that. Stupid mistake. Im not worried about it. Im just ready to go fast come this weekend.

track noob here. So what happened in this clip exactly? You came into the corner too hot and then speed wobble kicked in when you grabbed the front brake? What can you do in this situation going into a turn at this point? I've read you're supposed to add throttle to get rid of the wobble but what the do you do going into a turn? I understand that this could've ended much worse....
