Look where you want to turn. If you are looking at the camera man then you will turn to the camera man.

I blame too much front brake too quickly, used it like an on/off switch instead of doing the progressive squeeze. He was looking at where he wanted to go (to pull over), just didn't expect the lock-up.

+1, that very first second of pulling that front brake is CRITICAL; gotta load the forks first, never jab at it like your smacking a bee, or you WILL smack the road.

Everyone knows the road closer to the edge (cliff) gets more wind and is a lot cooler than the inside. If they were riding on the correct side of the road, the extra heat in the pavement would've allowed him to do a stoppie....

Anyone else notice that in the slow-mo his hand was not on the front brake? I'm watching it on my phone. Anyone with a big screen that can confirm?

He had 2 fingers on the brake (index and middle). I vote rider fixation as well. Maybe he should've sanded his tires first

If you look close, there is some kind of slick looking line on the road right where he locked it. He definitely locked his front but I can's see how his front could turn/slide from under him going in a straight line.

could it be a combination of what mike and google3it suggested?

Now if that pavement happened to have been on a track, it would have been different.

yall are so analytical!

dude grabbed too much front brake... plain n simple. a front will come out from under neath of you QUICK if you dont know what you are doing.... and two fingers is more than enough to do so.
