Could be, I'm just going by what I've read. I don't personally think it has anything to do with technique, but , I don't ride at their level or anywhere near it, so I guess anything is possible.

I seriously doubt any of them do it "in case they fall", I think they're all smarter than that.

The braking forces and foot movement when downshifting causing the foot to come forward like that makes total sense to me.

If I ever get to that level of riding, I'll let you all know

Ive done it on several occassions. Going hot on the brakes and instead of freaking out and disrupting the setup for the corner keep it dangling and stay smooth.
