Well. Looks like a failed pass to me so I think the question here is what was he thinking The guy ended off track so I would say bad attempted pass. I don't like to pass on the outside of that turn as it's too easy to get pushed way wide. What level was this?

Looked legit.. smh

I don't understand the entire thing, slam the door on a fellow rider and then make the entire situation even more dangerous by riding slow as and looking around because you know you made a bonehead decision.

Oh man, I was so excited. I was hoping it was me. Although mine was in turn 6 and it forced me to run off as well. I was really hoping you just labeled the turn wrong haha.

Didn't have my camera rolling, but essentially I hit apex on turn six and was pushing out when another bike passed me on the outside and cut in front of me towards the inside of the track while I was about 2-3 feet after hitting apex. Literally thought I was going to hit their rear wheel and wash both of us out and fail prov nov. Took the DRZ offroading which was pretty fun, but never thought I was so close from crashing.

You need to watch the video closer.

Guy on the inside was in a position to begin with....he was going to go wide no matter what...he should have just slowed down, chill on the inside ,way inside, and speed up when it's safe

I just did. I was on my phone earlier. Kind of a bone head move going inside like that then parking. The other rider sweeps to the outside then runs in to the apex. I think I will just stay away from both of them. This is why they have classrooms at the track. I hope they both learned from this.

Guy passing had the more correct line... Guy down low ran wide which effed up the pass. Everyone in the video needs to work on their lines. I see why there's lots of crashes in B group lol
