They do. I think it was Mat Oxley who wrote an article about the various "graduate level" techniques of the truly gifted (and motivated), intentional front-tire tucks among them. On a related note, next time you are the Indy Mile, pay close attention to the entry of T1--flat trackers do it too.

This is why all this nonsense about countersteering or not is wide of the mark; these guys operate at a level far, far beyond the conventional.
