More Video Droppage

Here is a race video sent in by a reader who has embraced the drop. As it should be. Let this be a lesson to all you Cat 4s who like to take those inside lines in the corners. Imminent droppage will occur.

I love these. The common thing I have noticed is the constant gear shifting and looking down.

Why does this guy have a power meter?

it's important to sync the power data up with the video so he can identify the exact wattage level at which droppage occurs.

You guys are awesome...I laughed so hard I was crying after the "Why does this guy have a power meter" comment!

Yeah, decided to helmet cam up and get feedback from my team on how to improve, then posted this pearl. Things went from bad to worse for 40 minutes (the full race video is on the vimeo site if you click through). Definitely got better after this painful experience.

Keep 'em coming! Bikelink

Someone needs to teach this guy the art of "tailgunning". I'd love to see a video of a strong rider sitting on the back catching each, and every dropped rider as they get detached. Even better have him mount a cam on the back of the bike to get their facial expressions!

You loose momentum through each turn. Are you braking through the turns or what?

Tail gunning is an art form.
