Who among track day enthusiasts hasn't wished they could be faster and ride more smoothly?
The fact is that attacking a curve is relatively simple, but 'sewing' all the trajectories into a single lap is another matter entirely. And this is because we break down riding into acceleration and braking. Nothing could be more wrong!
"Braking on the track is not the art of slowing down, as many people think. Braking is another tool to go faster." MotoGP Performance Riding Techniques tells us. There are quotes from many of the MotoGP riders, from Rossi to Marquez, via Crutchlow, Miller, Morbidelli, and it makes for a smooth read like the ride we wish we had.
MotoGP Performance Riding Techniques is a fun read for anyone who wants to know how the best do it on race weekends. It's a visually appealing book with lots of diagrams and various riding situations, all illustrated with photographs.
