that corner/curve alone both up and down
had particular challenges for basic setup
and approach to up/downsloping corners..
ie, not particularly challenging, however
still very different up and downslope for
a rider capable enough on flat roads..
approaching new situations with care
switches on brain and learning potentials,,
also allowing wider ranges of options
if too fast or poorly aligned [etc]..
coming off as in that demo tho teaches
mainly a basic fear type response..
even if the otherwise rational rider
goes over it and looks for answers etc..
better to learn from small errors which
can be corrected without breaking things..
a worthwhile lesson in skilled motogp riders
needing to learn a new or less familiar circuit..
even resurfacing etc or new/different tyres
require many laps for familiarisation..
granted this is for racing, yet given the high
skills land equipment levels the lesson applies
for any rider.. learn the road or type of road,
uphill, downhill, reducing radius, wet surfaces
and so on.. bonus being real time increases in
potential braking distance and reaction times etc..
